Thought I would take a moment to share with you my experience at this year’s IP ESC show in Grenoble, France. First off, Grenoble is beautiful sitting at the foot of the French Alps. If you get the chance, go!
Back to the show. This is typically the IP Show, but this year is the first that ESC has been added to the agenda. I don’t think it helped attendance-wise. From what I can tell, there are maybe 200-250 attendees in total. I spent the last couple of days sharing booth duty with our friends from Emenda, France. Today, I spoke about how source code analysis fits into Agile development teams. I had about 15 attendees, which by all accounts was a good turnout.
I was able to cram about 40 minutes of material into 20-minute slot, and even had time left over to answer a few questions. Unfortunately, this show did not allow Exhibitors to attend any of the sessions. Too bad really, I was hoping to attend a few of them.
Next week, I am off to a similar show in Stuttgart, Germany, where I will have more time to present. Check back here next week for a recap of that event.
