Live from SugarCON

Don’t mind my absence recently, it’s been quite hectic at Sugar preparing for things like SugarCON – but now it’s here and I’m here. I am going to try do my best blogging while hanging out at different presentations. I have three presentations myself which are all apart of the Admin track. I will be going to my colleagues’ presentations first – “Mashing Up Sugar”, followed by “Product Roadmap”.

SugarCON opened up with Martin Schenider turning up his Gibson SG to an ear piercing level – enough to wake the dead or anybody else who wasn’t ready for SugarStyle. John Roberts was next to step on the stage and covered not only the history and origin of Sugar, but also the essence of the SugarCRM project and company. I was blown away when John had Martin queue up a Google Map of all the SugarCRM installations over time in each country. It’s amazing to see how the world has so quickly adopted SugarCRM.

I’m currently sitting in the Keynote from Daniel Lyons. Most of you probably know him as the Fake Steve Job. I can say without a doubt he’s already left me speechless. His irreverent rants on the future of technology are not only rib-busting hilarious, but also very thought provoking. His macroview of IT industry and it’s shift to OSS as building the infrastructure for the cloud validates that Sugar is a key player of changing how businesses do business.

Ok, it’s lunch time and I’m excited to get a bite to eat. I’ll chime back in shortly. If there’s anything in particular that you want to hear about from the developer track, post a comment and I’ll find out for you.

If you’re not here, you really should think about coming next year. It’s a great turnout and a great group of people. Ciao!

    Daniel was indeed not only funny, but thought provoking as well. In the future, he says, we will look back and wonder how proprietary software managed to exist in the same manner we wonder how the Giza pyramids were built. In essence, we are living the future, we are pioneering open source.
