Here are some notes from the conference:
- PHP 5.3 is going to have alpha2 next week. Namespaces could be nice in MidCOM, but I wonder how well they will work with the autoloader
- Turtle is a "friend-to-friend" framework to provide secure P2P data sharing in a trust network. Could be interesting with Midgard replication
- Apache and Lighttpd support the X-Sendfile header which we could utilize for simpler, fast file serving with Midgard
- The MINIX idea of automatically reincarnated user-space drivers and servers is pretty cool
- Lots of OpenMoko FreeRunner phones here!
Some interesting talks still left, including:
- Apache Mahout machine learning system
- dropr message queue for PHP
- Using PEAR installer for website releases
Unfortunately the Atom Publishing Protocol talk is only in German...
