Final Day

Today was the final day of MAX. It was a long day but the sessions today were very good.

We started off the day with breakfast on the Mississippi at Cafe Du Monde, and had coffee and beignets…yumm!

I was able to get into the Flex application building hands-on session first thing and that was awesome.

With the survey all filled out, and MAX 2004 drawn to a close, we headed to Mother’s restaurant for a giant po-boy and closed the night with a trip to Harrah’s Casino. (yep, we lost $$).

Mardi Gras World

Today was special event day! Mardi Gras World was awesome, we had a great part there and all of the diverse floats were very cool.

This was a huge improvement over Salt Lake City. The Olympic Oval was nice, but SLC cannot compare to the vibrant city of New Orleans!

The sessions today were great, as was the special reception held for Education and Government customers at the Hilton Riverside courtyard.

All Day Session

Today was the all day hands-on session on Blackstone.

Despite some minor technical difficulties, the session provided some great information on the new featues of the next ColdFusion.

For dinner, we went to the Bourbon House after the sponsor reception at the convention center.

Tuesday at MAX

Today I had some great sessions all day as well as an awesome general session this morning.

At the end of the day, drinks and appetizers were provided and there was a raffle provided by the user group coordinators. I WON! Yes, I was the first winner called and I won a very nice Macromedia bag.

After leaving the conference, we went to dinner at a brew pub called Gordon Biersch across from the hotel that was very good.
