From 20th to 22nd of July, the TUG 2015 conference took place in Darmstadt, Germany. It was a splendid time, and it was so great to meat you brilliant TeX Stack Exchange friends there!
- awesome presentations, some of the best done by TeX.SE members
- an excursion to the underground and to the deep past
- a lot of discussions
- WiFi 🙂
- a tasty banquet and daily lunch
- coffee and icecream
- some beer at night
Joseph posted daily reviews on his blog, so you could follow the proceedings close to the time, or now see a summary.
I posted notes and thoughts on LaTeX-Community.org. I tried to tell details about the presentations too, so it’s a bit longish. Here they are:
I don’t repeat what Joseph and I wrote in the reports in detail, except the most important: thanks to the TUG, thanks to the sponsors DANTE and River Valley Technologies, special thanks to Klaus Hoeppner who did a marvelous job of organizing the meeting!
We made a photo of our TeX.SE group, so guess who is who!
Well, at least two people are missing on the photo: barbara beeton and Paul Gessler. That makes 18 people, yay!!
Thanks for the nice photo. But guessing who is who is a hard assignment. Probably a legend would be very nice.
We are also missing keks dose, as he could only do the first day
