This year’s youngest volunteer was Ryan who quality controlled the boxes, greeted our attendees and kept an eye on things.

To kick off the day we had Jessica Kerr give the keynote: DDD Should Take Over the World. Many thanks to Jessica and to our friends at YOW for getting up early and giving an energetic keynote.
