We just finished up and it was another great conference. The attendance was quite high (I think Gene said 67) and the talks were wonderful.
We heard from Dennis Harms, Product Manager (I think that was his title) of the HP 12C. He had some great stories. In the introductions, he said "if you press a math key on an HP calculator, that's probably some of my code you're running."
I think the highlight for me was the WP 34S. Marcus von Cube gave a great talk about it, Jake Schwartz talked about the 16C functionality in it, and Eric Rechlin explained his keyboard overlays, complete with a demonstration on installing them. I sat across from Eric and he spent most of the conference flashing 20b's and 30b's into 34S's. This is certainly an exciting machine.
Of course we heard lots of great stuff from HP also, including a Q&A session with the developers, marketing, product management etc. Information from HP is covered under the NDA that we must all sign, but trust me, it's very interesting and for me, the confidential information is reason enough to attend the conferences.
There were many other talks but I don't have time right now to go into them. Joe Horn won the Best Speaker prize.
