이번 여행을 떠나기 전에 가장 고민했던 것은 무거운 DSLR 가방을 가져갈 것인가 말 것인가 였다. 가방 3개를 들고 이리저리 뛰고, 뭔가 남기고 전달해야 하기 때문에 수시로 카메라를 꺼내고 넣고 했던 이전 기억들이 그다지 좋지만은 않아서 과감하게 카메라를 놓고 오기로 했다. 게다가 다른 분들이 다 디카를 가져올 테니까 얻어 쓰면 될테니. 잘한 선택이었다.

케누 형이 올린 사진들 중에서 몇장…

스프링의 최신 모토인 Weapons for the War on Java Complexity. Cmplexitania와 전쟁을 벌이려는 스프링과 기타 스프링소스 제품이 흥미롭게 그려져있다.

첫날 파티 시간에 만난 캐나다와 미국에서 온 중국계 개발자들. 혼자 가서 만나고 있는데, 기선이와 영회,케누 형도 와서 즐거운 얘기를 나누었다. 젤 오른쪽은 시애틀에서 온 폴. 가운데 클라라라는 이름의 여자와 그 뒤의 남자 둘은 캐나다 토론토의 모 대학에서 함께 일하는 사람들이다. 컨퍼런스에 가보면 중국계 현지인 개발자들이 많다. 말투로 보아서는 현지에서 태어난 2세는 아니고 아마 유학을 왔다가 취업을 해서 살고 있는 사람들이 많은 듯. 어쨌든 같은 동양계라 만나면 좀 더 편하다. 클라라가 할 줄 아는 한국말은 "비빔밥"과 "감자탕"이라고.

이번에 함께 오게되 친해진 전 OKJSP (앞으론 OKSPRING) 교주 케누 광남이 형. 출생의 비밀이 있는 것인지 나이와는 다른 동안과 순수한 모습으로 사람들을 즐겁고 편안하게 해주는 것이 장점. 스프링의 매력에 풍덩 빠뜨리려고 무지 모력했는데… 두고 봐야겠다.

스프링 오픈소스의 창시자이자 스프링 개발의 90% 이상을 혼자 담당하고 있는 33살의 엄친아 유겐 할러와 한장. 거기서 이렇게 붙잡고 사진 찍는 사람은 우리들 뿐이었다. 유겐이 없었다면 지금의 스프링은 없다. 그의 코드를 보며 감탄한지 벌써 5년째… 아내인지 여친인지 미모의 여성과 키스를 나누는 것을 기선이가 포착.

내가 제일 좋아하는 스프링 서적인 Pro Spring(1판만, 2판말고)의 저자 Rop Harrop과도 한 컷. 그 옆엔 까칠해 보이지만 사실은 여리고 순진한 안녕해군. 지난 3년간 S1 가지고 꼬셨는데 결국 올해 착한 고객사를 만난 덕에 시간을 내어서 참석했다.

둘째날 저녁에 만난 벤 알렉스. 같은 호주에서 온 사람이고, 내가 무지 좋아하는 아씨지의 개발자인지라 꼭 한번 만나고 싶었으나, 보통 컨퍼런스에서 발표때 말고는 얼굴 보기 힘들어서 아직까지 인사를 못했는데, 영회가 KSUG 명함 주겠다고 펍의 한쪽 자리에서 스프링소스 직원들과 즐거운 시간을 보내고 있던 벤을 끌고 와버렸다. 볼이 발그스름한게 영회랑 비슷한데.. 오후에 해변에서 놀았던가? 벤이 호주에서 온 사람들도 몇 있다고 했는데, 누군지 알 길이 없어서 결국 못만났다. 아시아-태평양 지역 책임자라 홍콩, 싱가폴 같은데로 많이 여행을 하는데, 영회가 한국에 한번 초대하겠다고 벼르고 있다. 빵빵한 스폰서만 있으면 제주도에서 컨퍼런스를 열겠다는… 가운데 미모의 여성은 본인이 누구인지 어디서 온 사람인지 밝히지 말라고 신신당부를 하셔서, S사의 P님이라고 밖에 못 남기겠다. 세계적으로도 극히 드문 스프링을 잘 하는 여성개발자이다. 그리고 케누형.. 사람 얼굴 잘나오게 제발 플래쉬좀.

셋째날 풀 파티 때, 유일하게 수영장에 뛰어든 세마리 북극곰들. 표정은 즐거워보이지만 사실 세찬 바람에 매우 떨고 있다.

리조트 사진. 이건 숙소동이고, 저 옆에 컨벤션 센터가 연결되어있다. 가족과 함께 즐기기에는 최고의 리조트이다.

파티 때 바닷가에서 정말 우연히 만난 Spring in Action 1,2의 저자 Craig Walls와 두 딸. 온 가족이 함께 와서 시간을 보내는 듯 하다. 딸들이 정말 귀엽다. 1판이 번역된 것은 알고, 책도 가지고 있다고 한다(근데 왜 그리 무겁냐고…). 2판이 번역되었다는 사실은 아직 모르는 듯 해서 영회가 열심히 설명해줬다. 영회의 추천사가 들어간다. 귀여운 둘째는 사진찍는 케누형이 무섭다고 아빠한테 가자고 징징.

폐회식을 하는 가 해서 기다리고 있는 중. 기존에 NFJS가 직접 행사 진행을 했는데, 이번엔 스프링소스에서 직접 기획하고 진행한 듯 하다. 솔직히 NFJS가 할 때가 훨 낫다. 적어도 폐회식하면서 iMac 한대 추첨해서 주는 쎈스가 있었는데 말이다. 결국 마지막 세션으로 그냥 스르르 마무리.
