This year’s PIUG annual conference was held in Garden Grove, CA, just a few miles from Disneyland. Although I never made it to see Mickey Mouse, I still managed to have an excellent time, and to learn a lot in the process! The conference is always content-heavy, with two days of weekend workshops followed by a three-day-long technical program and then a final day of workshops (see a full program). With so much to write about, it was difficult to narrow this blog post down to just a few topics! The following summary contains some highlights from the event.
