DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper is over, I must say that this was the busiest event I’ve played a part in organising (both from the sheer number of attendees and the number of tracks!) It took me until Sunday morning to relax (I did however, enjoy the euphoria of the event and the post-event drinks!)
Please visit http://www.developerday.co.uk/feedback2.asp and let us know what you thought of the sessions, the organisation, anything in fact…we’ll listen and act upon it. If you thought something sucked (like that pratt who dropped a can of Dr.Pepper at the back of Dinus’ session, for example…I’m sorry, btw!), tell us: we will do something about it for next time. And if something went well, we’d like to hear about that too.
We had 320 attendees, 30 sessions spread over 5 tracks. Only one session had to be swapped out due to speaker illness; a further two sessions were swapped to allow a delayed speaker time to arrive.
After the success of the first DDD day and now the success and overwhelming attendance figures at the second DDD day, if you liked what you saw and would like to be a part of the next one (likely to be Q2 2006), get in touch. We’ll happily take suggestions for topics, offers of sessions, and any other support – you’ll find my e-mail address available here: http://www.craigmurphy.com
Anyway, here are a few of my photographs of the event, more to follow: (let me know if you’d like full size copies)
The view from the stairs: lots of attendees, lots of q’n’a
Anton did a good job stepping in at the last minute (thanks Anton!)
Brian and Guy – the food must have been good!
Remember to thank the catering staff at events!
Daniel (aka lennybacon) and Amy – there’s sparkle between them…of the camera flash!
Melita and Jonathan – without whom, there would be no DDD venue or web-site: much thanks are due! Melita also organised the rather cool DDD polo shirts sported by organisers and speakers!

DDD rocks! The youngsters (Iron Maiden were not on the agenda! May be next time?)
