Posted on: July 6th, 2012 by joel

Ok everyone, I realise you’ve been on tenderhooks about this but the winner of the June #Port80 Wristband Competition(tm) is…….[roll of drums]

Dulcie Fulton!

This is her winning entry…reminds me of a Bow Wow Wow cover or something…

Dulcie wins a free ticket to next year’s Port80 2013.

How. Cool. Is. That?!

If you’d like to take part (even if you don’t have a wristband) then the next winner will be picked at the start of September (gives you a chance to take a photo on your hols). If you need a wristband, lemme know.

(Rules reminder: you must be wearing the wristband..even if it’s on your ankle 😉

Full details on how to take part here…

I’d like to thank everyone else for joining in on the first round; here’s three of the also rans….

2012 Talk: Andy Davies

Posted on: July 5th, 2012 by joel

Andy Davies gave a fantastic talk on web performance at this year’s Port80 event in May Andy was talking about web performance and presented in a fantastic manner (with lovely slides) which meant that this techy/geeky subject was easily digestible. They audience was a mixed bag of techy & creative people and it’s safe to say that *everyone* got something out of it.

“Web Performance”
