Today I'm getting the chance to sit in with some fellow iRulers here at F5 and chat about this technology we love.  This is a multi-day event, so I won't be able to sit in for every hour of it, but I'm trying to soak up as much of the geeky goodness as I can while I'm able to play with the cool kids.

It's pretty hawesome to see this much knowledge and experience in one room, with such a broad range of perspectives and stories to tell about what the technology can do, where it should be heading, what's coming up next, etc. This is all F5 folks, so I can't share everything we're talking about, but I can definitely say that if you're into iRules, or have thought about diving in, I'd keep an eye out as things are only going to keep getting cooler.

This week Jeff and Joe are out gallivanting around Japan attending some awesome tech talks there, including the first Japan DevCentral User group. This means that we've got chats about DevCentral/iControl/iRules happening simultaneously (almost) around the globe.  You go guys! I can't wait to hear how things went, and the stories they come back with. So travel safe, and we'll see ya soon.

Back on the home front those of us left are trying to keep things locked down, as it were, so don't worry, there will be plenty of DC goodness rolling out throughout the week as always. Check back often for updates about the traveling exploits of our team-mates abroad, as well as your usual dose of tech.
