It was a bit of a mad scramble at times but we did it. 100 punters turned up from all over the south-east on Saturday to hear some great speakers, some that had come all the way from Colorado, although granted not just for our event. The WHOLE THING was FREE! That included the event itself, t-shirts, stickers, sweets, a beer, a pizza, an after-party… and most astonishingly of all a copy of Flex Builder 2 for each and every attendee, courtesy of Adobe! As well as a single copy of CS3 Web Premium as a raffle prize at the end of the conference. That’s right kids, if you were one of the 20 or so people who registered but didn’t actually turn up then you’ll have missed out on all that. And it should be stressed that we didn’t badger Adobe for the stuff. Sure, we asked them for some sponsorship money - hotel rooms, food, beer, PA systems: they all cost money - but the software? Nah, that was their idea and a very generous one too. Thanks guys!
Thanks also to the speakers who, again, generously gave their time pretty much for free. But thanks mainly go to the punters who turned up to what i hope they found an enjoyable and engaging event. Cos, y’know, at-heart, bottom-line, end-of-the-day:
We did it for YOU!
