Aussie Devcon 2008, Why I Love Community
Here is what I love about Devcons:
You find awesome people.
The SV sessions have been fantastic. Like previously mentioned, they put a huge amount of diligent work into preparation and then delivery. Fantastic.
However, as good (different) has been the "business practices" focussed talks. We’re a little way into Kim Davies‘ talk, Michael Summons having gone previously.
I tells you, this is amazing stuff. Michael just blew me away. The guy has such a clear grasp on the Full Spectrum of Business. How to get stuff done .. really done. Not hobby-ist, and not Throw-A-Million-Dollars-At-It either.
Michael talked about discipline, putting into place good practices, adjusting those practices when they need it, when they might not work. Being _proactive_ not _reactive_.
It’s stuff you’ve probably heard before. For me, it was an amazing half hour.
And Kim is walking in the same steps :) .. but honing in on the Marketing. Very cool. I’ll have more later.
