Michael Starzinger and Xerxes Rånby going by bus to startup and listen to the first VMRumble sessions.
Ian Rogers made it perfectly clear that Jikes RVM are the fastest JVM around and that you should read and follow the little red book. Great show!
Gary Benson chocked the whole audience by showing that the Fedora 32 and 64 bit PPC Zero port had passed SUN's TCK. Fantastic work Gary!

Mark Reinhold demonstrated that you can sit infront of a laptop with a straight back! Great to know!
The Openembedded boot was really exciting. I cant belive how did I miss that they even had a Lazer projected keyboard to play with ??!?
Ulf did a great job explaining all about running Linux on embedded hardware at the Open Embedded booth.
Not everyday you get to sit and drink a beer while having the oputunity to ask CPU related questions that only the one designing the hardware might have a clue to answer. This evening i got to know about mysterious 33bit (Yeah i know!) cpu instructions part of the king of CISC 32000 architecture and the undocumented HCF opcode that made some CPUs Halt and Catch Fire, probably the longest opcode to execute on any architecture.
