Smørrebrød with app juice - "NORDIC TechKomm" impressions

From May 24-25, 2016, the first Nordic TechKomm took place in Copenhagen, Denmark. parson participated with two presentations.

I gave a talk on "Content delivery - how to create and publish intelligent information". Mark Schubert presented a workshop about knowlege modeling: "I do not have to know that - a fairy tale introduction into knowledge modeling".

Already the flight to Copenhagen turned out to be interesting for me as a technical writer. As always, I watched the safety demonstrations by the flight attendents, even though I had seen them a dozen times. But safety first, of course. And thank God, I never have had to apply them. Some other warnings, however, like the one in the photo below, are given in a rather subtle manner.

The conference was also highly educational, not only thanks to the many interesting talks, but also at lunch. We were given typical smørrebrød, delicious and light open sandwiches with fish and liver pate. While the food was rather traditional, the supply of drinks was controlled via smartphone: app juice, so to speak. You can't ask for more.
