DDD Adelaide 2019 Summary
Phew! DDD Adelaide 2019 is done. Yesterday we had 150 people come along to UniSA’s MOD building in the city and see 16 speakers present some awesome topics on software development.
The feedback on the day was overwhelmingly positive. I’ll be catching up with co-organiser Andrew soon to debrief and also review the comments received from attendees.
Special thanks to the gold sponsors:
- Telstra Purple,
- The University of South Australia and in particular The School of Information Technology and Mathematical Sciences, who went out of their way to provide a beautiful venue.
Here’s a few of my highlights of the day:
Some kind people brought one or two donuts to share!
Lars Klint was our keynote speaker, kicking off the day.
A fantastic range of speakers, including Ming Johanson
and Liam McLennan (who incidentally was actually a speaker around 10 years ago at the last DDD Adelaide)
Really yummy catering provided by Food Lore…
It was great to see so many software developers gathered together in Adelaide.
Andrew drawing the prize winners (prizes sponsored by Octopus Deploy) and closing out the day.
Finally, special thanks to my wife and two eldest kids who also gave up their Saturday to help out as volunteers for the day. I really appreciate their support.
