Splash 2024, Day 2, Monday, 22 May 2024
Another day, another exercise in excitement and exhaustion.  Yeah, yeah, jaded, privileged, pompous Cameron is here again for yet another OneStream almost-live blog.  Can anyone live with the excitement?  Hah!  I can, you should as well, ‘cos this conference is even more exciting than last year.
I am, in fact, missing quite a lot of it:  I had to duck out of the keynote at 10:15 to prepare for a Very Special Secret Squirrel project. 

I can only share this with you, but more anon:
Dear BDA CEO, I actually did attend the conference
So yes, side project, but BDA did sort of pay for a pass and I’d be remiss if I didn’t sort of show up at a presentation, particularly one I presented.  I was part of the PartnerPlace overview for BDA’s products:  Core Productivity, Core Technology, BDA Simple Code, and BDA Accordion Rolling Forecast.  In case you missed my deathless prose, here are my slides:
Core Prod/Core Tech
Simple Code
That of course is the official, normal, businesslike content.  And then there was Yr. Obt. Svt..
Here I am looking almost normal:
And here I am in a not-so-normal state:
Alas, you cannot see the Accordion Wizard’s Wand.  Sharon, yes, props, particularly silly ones, make for a memorable presence.  Alex Ladd of MindStream Analytics was next and as he walked up to the podium said, “I hate going on after Cameron”.
I did in fact also make it to the Expo hall.  Here’s my chum from Oracle days, Chris Rothermel, demoing OneStream’s Power BI connector:
You can see how crowded it was:
The BDA Booth
Sherri, Allen, Daniel, Luke, Ryann, Jason, Damon, Mike, Ashley, the top of Greg’s head, Mark, Gary, Katery, Ashwin, Melissa, and Robin:
The Party
Again, aways, the human factor.  And the tech:
And the people
The kind of normal but not really
Damon, Jason, Mr. Metallic Stilts, Peggy, Daniel, Luke, Katery:
And the normies
Yr. Obt. Svt. and his brother from a totally different set of parents:
Wait, no, these are the normies
Peggy and Sherri:
Sherri and Shauna:

And back to the not-completely-normal
Pete and Gary:
Definitely not normal
Damon, Damon, Damon.  Oh my:
And back to normal
MikeM and my Little Sis:
Ryann, Randy, Melissa, and Damon:
I did get more than five hours of sleep so I am super happy and almost awake.
Be seeing you.
