Here’s just a fleeting note, one of so many examples of the die-hard IT community in the mid-west. Dianne Marsh (co-organizer of CodeMash) noted today on her official Facebook page today that, while Google IO may have sold out in under and hour, “CodeMash 2013 sold out faster … 30 seconds. Yes, seconds”. I’m going to echo Dianne: seconds. It happened in minutes in 2012. There is an unprecedented fervor for learning new technical knowledge and enjoying companionship with our contemporaries in the mid-west that I am just so damn proud to be a part of.
Thanks for pointing this out Dianne and thanks to everyone else who contributes to this stellar community.
