Last weekend I flew down to Sydney for DrupalCamp Australia 2008. Everyone takes away something different from events like this apart from a t-shirt. For me I met great people with similar interests, and gained the motivation to improve my skills.
All the presentation I saw were excellent, the most memorable for me were Unit Testing by lyricnz, CVS Patches by Jaza, Panels 2.x Jeff, and Maintaining Drupal with Git by Gordon.
Since then I have started using Git for version control, and find it fast and simple to use. SimpleTest I am using for the MySQL Table Manager, and it has already helped enormously. It really is simple, once you get into it.
Drupal has been moving strongly towards 100% testing coverage for the next release, so becoming familiar with SimpleTest will be of benefit to the Drupal community and make testing modules easy.
