This was the first time that ByWater Solutions had sponsored an event for a Library Conference, and I’ll tell you one thing it won’t be our last. We Sponsored the trolley/shuttle for the transportation to the Grand Rapids Main Library reception and the Dine around for attendees to designated restaurants. There was a nice banner on the side of the Trolley that had the ByWater logo and the Growing Evergreen Conference logo. I think it was well received and I’m quite pleased with the service. It feels good to be on the other side of this because I remember as a librarian I always appreciate really cool sponsored services and definitely took advantage of them. So, It feels good.
I also enjoy these conferences because I get to meet many of the librarians who I’ve only meet in a digital fashion. For about 6 months now I’ve been chatting with an IRC nickname of Moodoepo and I had a chance to meet him face to face. That’s excellent and I found that he is much funnier in person *but still pretty lively and funny in digital form.” It’s always great to meet and talk with other developers face to face.
The Evergreen community seems to have a lot of positive momentum and this makes me really excited. Our Team that attended has picked up some excellent ideas for development and can’t wait to get home and have the time to code/develop.
