Here’s a rough summary of what folks are saying about the third DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper event held last Saturday, 3rd June 2006. If you’ve blogged about DDD3 and I’ve missed you, it wasn’t intentional, please let me know and I’ll update this post. Once again, huge thanks to the attendees, the speakers, the Microsoft events staff and catering folks, it made it a super day all round!
[Updated] Ben Hall enjoyed the ice cream and the freebies here. Ben reckoned we should aim for Level 300-400 sessions next time…point taken.
[Updated] John Winstanley, previous speaker, write about it here.
[Updated] Tom (Albinson?) provides a good write up over here. Again, your comments about the technical depth of the sessions are noted and will be address next time around.
Richard Peat blogged about his take on the day here. Somehow, I didn’t get around to speaking to you, sorry!
Barry Dorrans enjoyed watching his slides retract after somebody at the back of the room “lent” on the switch (now I should have photographed it, but I’m sure it has a “lift up” cover protecting it).
Zi Makki has posted some photos over here. There’s no way I poured myself a glass of wine like that…it was staged purely for the camera, honestly!
Dave McMahon reviews the day here. At the same time he publishes my photograph of Dave and ex-FBI man, Ed Gibson (now Microsoft’s Chief Security Adviser). Ed spotted Dave, instantly recognising him from the FBI’s Most Wanted list. This picture confirms Dave’s capture! Dave’s partner in crime, not wanted by the FBI, Richard Costall publishes a short’n’sweet review here. Here’s a snap of Richard and Dave:

[Dave’s captured by Ed!]
Jono Bacon writes about DDD3 and the interesting date the sixth day of the sixth month of 2006 – since I am a noted Metallica fan, Slayer are on my playlist too! Here’s a snap of Jono and John enjoying a beer:
Daniel Fisher, lennybacon, makes mention of the event here. Dan, we organised the weather too, it takes some doing, but we know the right people! Dan’s running a conference in Dusseldorf, 27th July 2006: NRW06, I will be there, talking about test-driven development, unit testing, and automating code coverage using unit tests.
