It was a bit of an experiment, but hack.summit(), the largest developer conference of its kind has been a complete success. If you missed it, here are a couple of my favorite keynotes so far:
Jon is a legend on StackOverflow. If you aren’t familiar with him, he’s basically the Chuck Norris of the developer community. He, along with his sock puppets, gave an hour keynote presentation on his thought process on answering questions on Stack Overflow, unicode, and how to pick the right platform.
Brian Fox (featuring Ed Roman)
Brian is the author of the GNU Bash shell. His fireside discussion with hack.summit() Founder Ed Roman was the highlight for me on day 2. You don’t often get to be a part of an interactive discussion this technical. This is an example of the innovative ways an event like hack.summit() can change the way we do conventions.
There are still two more days of keynotes. Remember, you can register for free at hack.summit() when you use the promo code DZONE.
