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.
