Jason says that he's "banning talks, presentations or any other kind of session that doesn't involve real live coding" I appreciate the gesture, but I'm not sure that's quite right. I found that Ade's session on mapping personal practices particularly valuable—although it could have benefited from another hour or so. None–the–less a programmers' conference with programming as its core topic illustrated through programming is a too–rare thing and Jason is to be commended for making one happen.
Both of the sessions that I ran there involved real coding by attnedees and even though I wasn't coding myself I learned plenty from the reactions of those who were, such as Gojko's on the TDD session. I've not come across a better forum elsewhere for that kind of discussion on that sort of scale than the SC conference, so having another one seems like a very good thing.
