Looks like I'm headed to Evolve. The Xamarin Conference.
I'm excited. I think I only got the free pass, because I threatened to camp outside the conference rooms. : )
I had a plane ticket.. because I had to pay for it from a previous employer. I will end up staying in a hostel, because the budget is tight.
I am happy. Things are going well at work, and I'll have quite a few use cases to finish to go to this conference, but to be honest.. I know even right now.. that it won't get in my way. This person I am now, isn't the same person that was around even 4-5 months ago. I don't know whether to feel bad about that, or to enjoy it. My obligation is the same as it always was, I just feel differently about the weight of it. I now do what I do, for the enjoyment of it, not because it must be done.
This conference was everything I wanted. Very grateful right now.
