SuperHappyDeveloping

Live at SuperHappyDevHouse2

Last night was my first SuperHappyDevHouse. It was the first time since college that I experienced such a gathering of people, expressing a shared love of coding and tech ideas, and it felt great. Personally, I found it rather too SuperHappy to get a lot of Dev done – so many interesting or just entertaining things going on that it’s quite hard to concentrate on your own stuff. I worked on my idea for giving arbitrary (i.e. including REST) XML webservices a semantics. I showed a few freinds and they were diligently positive but the idea felt in too much of a hand-wavy state to show to others – a missed opportunity, I know. Mark Lentczner’s demo of Wheat was a highlight of the night for me. Let’s hope it catches on.

All in all, a success. What better motivation to code until dawn than to be surrounded by a chorus of SuperHappyDevelopers? I’ll be back next time. With attitude. Maybe.

    Glad you enjoyed it. Expect another in August. Right now we’re talking about August 6th… Keep an eye on upcoming.org or the official site (which is getting an overhaul soon).

    Btw, I don’t know if we met–I just found this entry from technorati. 😉
