ODTUG Day -1: More pictures from Daytona Beach

As some of you couldn't make it, here some more pictures and a video!

Today (Saturday) I walked down the beach. The fresh air, the ocean, really nice.
In Belgium we've a sea (the North Sea), but an ocean is nicer, bigger waves ;-)
One thing however, the sun goes under in our sea... and that's not the case here in Daytona Beach. And on the Daytona Beach your car is allowed!
The other picture shows the Daytona Beach street and what happens when you fall asleep!
The video shows the ocean... nothing more, nothing less... but try to smell the air and get the feeling of being here ;-)

I walked to the impressive Hilton hotel where the seminar is going to be held. I wanted to register, but that's only possible from Sunday onwards. In the hotel I came across some other people, like for ex. Wilfred van der Deijl.

If you've never met Wilfred, you can recognise him on his length... I didn't have my camera with me, but I'm pretty sure in the next days we'll be on the same picture. You'll see the difference ;-)

We walked down the beach and talked about the development tools (JDeveloper, APEX, BPEL, ...) and life. Wilfred blogs a lot about his experience of their conversion from Forms to ADF. He's also in the panel who will discuss the differences in tools. Of course he's on the other side of the table compared to me! But he's a really nice guy ;-)

The rest of the day I headed between the pool, the beach and my laptop. As for food, I started with some famous American Onion Rings and a typical burger.

I'm going to sleep early tonight as I didn't sleep that well yesterday.

That is an excellent quality video. I want to get some video of the para-sailors but my video camera isn't that good.
