SD West 2009SD West 2009 is over and we're just back from our trip to San Francisco. It was great to meet developers there and also some of our competitors such us Accurev and Perforce. I actually had a very interesting and friendly talk with Damon Poole, Accurev's CEO, about a number of different business related things.
We had the opportunity to talk with developers about our newest 2.7 release, which grabbed a lot of attention, especially the new distributed capabilities.
It was our first time at SDWest, and it's been a lot of fun. The booth was located just at the entrance of the expo area, so we had lots of visitors. We gave away hundreds of T-shirts (two different designs) most of them during the first day (until we almost run out of them) in just a few minutes. (We'll have to bring more next year!)
We also gave away Plastic License Cards, a collection of four different pictures which included 2 free Plastic SCM Professional licenses, I don't remember the exact number anymore, but we almost run out of them too.
Wednesday evening we attended the Jolt Awards ceremony which was an exciting event. This year was the first time we submitted Plastic SCM to the Jolts, and we were more than happy to se how it was selected as one of the finalists among a number of SCM systems, so our mission was accomplished, but it was good to see how Open Make finally got the Jolt, after several years on the list. (Note to self: publish a tutorial about OpenMake/Plastic integration asap).
So, we're eager to go back to Santa Clara next year and hopefully unveil there the upcoming Plastic SCM 3.0 :-)
