devconf’s log #2 – Sun, Mandela, and no Bowtie


Continued from DevConf’s log #1 – Flights, floods, and lack of sleep. Spent the weekend relaxing, mentally preparing for the conference, and enjoying the sun, food, and discussions.

Part of the mental preparation is to practice the session and ensure the 60-75min talk can be delivered in the 45min DevConf slot. I focused on grounding my feet to create the foundation of a relaxed, automated, and passionate session that delivers value. Recognise the practice of “continuous learning and improving”?

It’s called the RED cross for a reason – I give up!

Enjoyed a great dinner and chat with Robert, who’s one of the pivotal organizers of the DevConf event. A few photos from the DevConf presentation rooms. Notice the lack of a bowtie?
