First day in Charlotte

First day in Charlotte started earlier than we had planned due the time difference. We also had some misfortune with us, as two from our group we delayed due mechanical failure on the plane that was supposed to bring them to Helsinki. We had no pre-con sessions for today so we had time to get to know the area around the Convention Center and the Uptown area. We did drop by the Convention Center to do our registration and to get our kit 🙂

The Convention Center was fairly large and there was even Starbucks inside. After grabbing a cup of Latte, we took off to the city. I have to admit that it’s easy to like Charlotte, it’s not too huge or crowded like larger cities tend to be. For a guy coming from Finland, it’s sort of relief. We’ll be hitting the sack early tonight to be prepared for tomorrows Clustering pre-con session.
