I’m so glad I came to this conference. It was almost a last time decision, but I can tell you now that I won’t loose one more.
The are 4 reasons for that.
Reason 1: The people
Let’s face it. This is the main reason I go to conferences. Meet new people and most of all hang with guys that you keep seeing at this events. Some of them are already friends. And that’s the beauty of our job. You always talk with bright minds and really nice persons.
Reason 2: The conference
The speakers line up was another reason, of course. I mean, there was Joshua Davis, Tom Beddard, Keith Peters, Grant Skinner… You can see them all here.
Reason 3: Marc
Marc Thiele is the conference’s curator. And if someone deserves your support, he’s the guy. A true genuine person who do what he’s doing for pure passion. I met him the first time at the Blackberry Dev Conf, in Amsterdam, and he’s a kind of guy that engages you since minute one. It was a true pleasure to see him again and be present at his conference. In a way, it’s a way to help.
Reason 4: The city
Cologne really surprised me. What a beautiful city… I could easily live in here. It somehow reminds me Lisbon. There’s something in it you can’t explain by words, just with feelings. I am now lunching at the Brüsseler Platz, and this place has an atmosphere so creative, so chill out, so simple, so beautiful.
I hope next year the quality of the conference maintains the same or even better. I won’t loose it. And you shouldn’t also.
