I'm leaving tonight for Munich where I'll be participating in the NMS Developers Conference - Europe. This is a conference for developers using or considering use of NMS technologies, so it's more like a family event. Historically, these conferences have been a great way for me to connect with a diverse set of developers and a diverse set of telecom applications. I'm looking forward to this trip! (besides central Munich is a great venue).
And, this is just the first of three such conferences (Europe, Americas, Asia) over the next months, so there's more interesting days ahead.
