After attending DDD SouthWest I went on a weeks holiday before I got a chance to blog out a “thank you” for a great event. Guy Smith-Ferrier and his team did a sterling job delivering a great multi-track event. For me it was:

  • Extremely well organised
  • Good food
  • Great location (an amazing school in Taunton – nothing like the school I went to!)
  • Lots of tracks, lots of choice, lots of knowledgeable speakers
  • Fun yet professional

Guy has written up a summary which included a link to some statistics about the event. Interestingly nearly 1 in 5 folks found out about the event through the UK MSDN Flash (you should sign up?).

On the day I stood in for a presenter to represent VB in the “balloon debate”. Despite my best efforts, VB won against C#, F# and Ruby (despite the fact I would have voted for Ruby!)

Me championing VB while Gary contemplates his efforts on F#. I think there is a caption opportunity on this one NB: Somebody air brushed in that double chin.

The audience “gripped” by the deep discussion ;-)

And something I said made Colin smile, unlike Gary who is looking very serious – or maybe just scared.

I think you meant "sterling", which means "of the highest quality", not "stirling", which is a place in Scotland...
