Code On The Beach… wait what, my laptop, near sand and water? Whose bright ideas was this?
Actually, it was a pretty awesome conference. For a short event, right in my back yard, it was even more spectacular. How does this little conference bring in such awesome speakers? I was blown away. I paid much, much, more to go to DevIntersections earlier this year, and this little conference out on the beach was head and shoulders above it in terms of quality. The speakers were better, the content was better, even the conference T-Shirt was better.
I had heard about this conference last year. It sounded interesting, but I blew it off. I decided to go this year after looking at the course tracks. I am thankful that I did. The courses were incredible. If I got tired of straight development sessions, I hopped over to some awesome IoT sessions and saw some Raspberry Pi work that makes me want to start tinkering.
The conference was so chill, maybe because it was on the beach? I think this one will be added to the yearly rotation for the foreseeable future.
