Thank you

Posted on: May 27th, 2012 by joel


What a day.

Everything just seemed to go well.

Registration? No problem (thanks Russ)

Audio & Visual? No problem (thanks Rich & Sean from the Uni).

Big thanks to all the speakers who did an awesome job: Andy Davies (my personal fave talk, it takes a gift to make TCP packet fragmentation accessible to a range of people!), Relly Annett-Baker, Rich Quick, Dan Gates, Cole Henley, Rob Mills, Tom Lloyd, Craig Lockwood and, I suppose, me (Joel Hughes).

Thanks also to Eleanor on stills photography and my wife Jess on video*

The team at the Uni include Sean, Emma, Cheryl, Dewi & Morna. Thanks.

Thanks also to Newport City Council.

Biggest thanks to all the attendees who bought into the day and seemed to get so much out of it.

Suffice to say that there WILL be a Port80 2013 (as well as the other, smaller, free events) and I’m taking the step to say we are claiming the #port80 hashtag.

I will be sending out a questionaire to gather feedback to improve the event for next year (and to find out who you guys want to listen to!).




p.s. hang on to your wristbands…there’s a competition lurking there 😉


*We weren’t shooting the full video of each talk so please don’t expect all talks to be online.
