What are you hoping to get out of Dev8D?
This if the first time I’ve ever been to this kind of thing. I’m here out of sheer intrigue! Yesterday morning I attended all of the lightning talks, and I’ve also been to the Zenity coding dojo. The dojo was a very good session, it was a great way to learn from other people.
What kind of skills are you gaining by being here?
I’m very keen to learn more about Zenity, as it’s about repository data stores and sharing data. It’s definitely something we’re going to be using so it’s good to see how it’s been applied early on.
More generally it’s also good to see a whole hall of people working on madcap ideas, just trying things out together and seeing what can happen.
Of all the projects or ideas you’ve seen, which will have the greatest impact?
The 3D printer has definitely stolen the show, It’s absolutely mind boggling! The fact that anyone can do it, and it’s so cheap.
