After 1.5 years away from the industry and roughly 7hr travel, I’m back in Rust.

Its situated near the German / French border, 230km South for Frankfurt. Pretty much nothing near it. Rural, you would say.

Why would the world’s largest cloud event, Cloudfest (ex-WHD), choose Rust as a venue ?

You see, Rust is also home to Europa Park. The 2nd most popular theme park in Europe, after Disneyland Paris.

In one stroke, the organisers of WHD , managed to accommodate thousands of attendees. And keep them here. No escape some would say 😀

This year’s event seems a little quieter. No surprise, as the ICANN meeting is also on at the same time. As is SXSW.

But for someone like me, who loves domains and the hosting world, it’s THE place to be.

On a personal note, I get to catch up with some good friends. But of course, I’m also here to get back into the game.

The event attracts companies such as Verisign, Intel, Radix,  RankingCoach, Weebly and countless others. So it offers me a huge opportunity to jump back into “my world”

If you’re at Cloudfest, feel free to reach out to me via my contact form, twitter, or via the the Cloudfest app.

I’ll be adding a bit more news form Cloudfest as the week progresses, so check back for updates 😀
