A little late in coming I know…but on 26th December Brisbane was host to the first DDD Brisbane! We’d sold out quite a lot before the event and had 40+ people on the waitlist so it can only be a good sign that people are keen for these types of events. We were there early to setup to hand out lanyards (which was the secret password for free coffee) and the all important swag.
Damian gave the keynote and all important logistical information around rooms, food and how to win free stuff!
For lunch we brought in 35 pizzas, 6 platters of subway, 4 platters of sushi. I thought we had way too much food but in the end, all the pizza and sushi went and we were only left with 2 platters of subway. Lunchtime saw a few people trying on various swag like the bucket hats and the very popular ladies Geekette shirts from Telerik.
A bunch of great sessions by the presenters and then everyone gathered at the end for their chance to win a bunch of prizes supplied by the sponsors.
Overall I think the day went quite well and I hope we’ll get to see a bigger and better DDD Brisbane next year.
