Budapest is absolutely stunning in April.
Beautiful. Charming. Adorable. Marvelous.

Its magnificence is so overwhelming that I had difficulties with fully focusing on Craft Conf 2015 - very interesting conference that took place few days ago in Budapest exactly. Interesting enough to write a blog post about it.

Let me start with ...

... my reasons for going there

At first glance, there may be some better ideas for spending pile of PLNs (quite big one - I've covered all the costs (incl. plane, few nights in a reasonable hotel, conf ticket itself) with my own money) - hardware upgrade, classroom training, certification exam, hedonism ;) etc., but conferences have some pros that can't really be easily matched:

But that's not all

What else did I expect from Craft Conf 2015?

Energy. Inspiration. Batteries recharged.
I wanted to re-focus myself on stuff I want to do.
On ideas & visions I believe in.
I deeply desired to re-adjust myself on the top of the wave I've always used to ride.

Because:

The most critical thing is living according to your own code - fully utilizing your potential, following the opportunities & always DARING FOR BETTER / FASTER / MORE. The world can be full of minimalists are happy with whatever blind fate brings, but A people want to work with A people, right-o?

Sorry for the long introduction, but I'm supposed to review something, it's good to be very specific about expectations & evaluation criteria :)

It didn't disappoint. Surely, there are always things that could go better:

... but the truth is that there were far more good stuff. Some examples:

Ok, this blog post is getting far too long already. Let's get to ...

... the final words:

  1. location = superb (Royal Gardens Bazaar in Budapest, on the hillside of Buda Castle, beat that)
  2. organization = pretty much flawless (a tiny bit of time mgmt & keeping the door closed in main stage would be great)
  3. content = solid
  4. atmosphere = decent

I don't think I could afford skipping Craft Conf 2016 next year. See you then in beautiful Budapest.
