You could not make it to ESUG 2009 conference. Dont be sad.
Sure you miss a lot of cool stuff, new ideas around Smalltalk and interesting presentations. (BTW: the presentation material is now also up on slideshare.net)
James also collected pictures and presentions and I'm sure there will soon be some videos from Damien available online.
And there are really exciting news: ESUG 2010 will be held at Barcelona.
Dont ask me where I got this information from but it is a reliable source. It is not yet public so even when you are not there you may be the third who now know about it. :)
