The JavaOne conference kicked off today and there are about 15,000 people here this year. My job is to answer questions at our booth and get people to play our game for a free t-shirt. Techies love a free t-shirt. Especially if it's black so they can spill food on it and it's less noticeable. I'm not even being facetious - I was instructed to order dark shirts for this reason.
The first day was 9 hours long and pretty busy. We didn't get any food at the party in the evening because the line was so long, so a group of us went to a sushi restaurant called Sakana afterwards. Excellent! We made Luke eat the fish bones that came with the bill since he was our token Asian.
