great consortium and conference experience

The Doctoral Consortium and the conference provided a great experience for me to get to know a diversity of research topics conducted on open source. It's interesting to hear people present their work, and very informative to listen to the comments and suggestions from the faculties and the audience. I had an opportunity to share my very initial dissertation idea, and got some great feedback very useful for the conceptualization of the work. This kind of feedback, to be honest, can save a lot of my time "searching in the dark". I was also glad to know a lot of great people. More and more, I kind of like the way we exchange intellectual ideas and non-serious talks -- with food and drinks, and a long daylight time in a small town named Skövde.
