The LDAP conference was held in Edinburgh this year. And it was fascinating.
It was my first time that I have visited Scotland. Despite the infamous weather conditions it was a very pleasant experience. Edinburgh is a really impressive city. And Scotland has much to offer in a form of food and drinks that pretty much compensate the weather.
It was also my first time at LDAPcon. And now I pity that I’ve missed the previous conferences. I have decided that I will not repeat that mistake ever again. The conference size is just right: enough people to make it interesting and not too many to make it a crowded place. There were LDAP hardcore topics, engineering topics, standards talks and even an excursion to digital humanities and a violin performance. Overall it was a very interesting mix.
