Fresh from the resounding success that was webDU 2009, we are raring to go for webDU 2010. If you have something new and revolutionary, some tricks of the trade to share, want to help your fellow developers or you're just pure passionate for web technology, don't miss your chance to take part in webDU 2010.
webDU was another awesome experience this year. Been reminiscing while listening to the high-quality, audio podcast of sessions I missed and the sessions I just had to hear all over again.
The webDU 2009 Call For Papers is open. If you'd like to be a speaker at our annual, antipodean, web gab-fest in Sydney feel free to throw your hat in the ring. On the other hand, if you "like to watch", be part of our social, agenda building experiment at UserVoice.
"All you have to do is submit a hand of our incredibly collectable trading cards to the friendly conference staff, and if it's one of the highest scoring hands, you could be in for a share of the goodies."
Peter Joel Blog, the voice of Peter Hall, started back in 2002 and was a regular stop for Flash developers of all levels. The enigmatic Hall has taken a much lower profile in recent years, but his updated webdu bio contains interesting highlights of his recent capers.
For the last few years we've been blessed by the talents of Nectarine’s Steve Piscopo putting together little Flash caricatures of webdu speakers. 2008 is no exception! Just love the new "boggle eyed" look. Here’s a quick sample — you'll have to search the speaker list for more.
Justin Carter over at Madfellas has put together a cute little gadget to count down to webDU 2007. I love it when people get all excited about webDU :)
Had another crack at webJam this month. But despite my success last time, not even a mention in despatches. Still the daemonites were out in force and fun was had by all. Plus we got to show off the latest on FarCry CRM, give away webDU tickets and rub shoulders with the upper echelon of Sydney geekdom.
As part of various promotional efforts we're giving away a bunch of webDU 2007 tickets. If you are hanging out to go but can't afford a ticket for whatever reason.. you might throw your hat in the ring for one of these freebies.
