/ YUICONF 2009, Day 1

What a week! As a new yahoo I attended orientation on Monday and Tuesday, and now I’m enjoying the first annual YUICONF. Late last night Christian Heilmann asked if I could contribute my impressions of the conference’s first day which was just posted to the YDN blog. Happy reading!

That itself is pinch-me worthy. But it’s been fanboy heaven. I’ve met Tom Croucher, Isaac Schlueter, Adam Moore, Matt Sweeney, Lucas Smith, Stoyan Stefanov, Satyen Desai, Philip Tellis and I shook Doug Crockford’s hand! Yes, I’m a shameless fanboy, and I don’t care! :-)
