Because of this full on weekend I couldn't commit to attend the SuperHappyDevHouse Mini, the sequel to the SHDH Pilot that started it all here in New Zealand.
But I did have time to briefly stop at the Southern Cross and meet Brenda and other developers who were happily coding, sharing knowledge and drinking coffee...
The event this time was smaller than the pilot, with about 20 developers working in a reserved area, with wireless access to the Internet (I counted two Windows laptops and all others were Mac OS - plus one Linux laptop).
The funniest comment from that event came from Brenda:
There was a family seated nearby giving us strange looks -- the adult ensuring the kids didnt' look at us for fear of something.
Eventually one of family walked over to the bar cashier, pointed at us, and said "Isn't that illegal?"
Not sure what he thought we were doing.
And this is in the country where we are pushing hard to have broadband to everyone, bringing down monopolies, unbundling the local loop and more...
UPDATE: If you are interested in joining SuperHappyDevHouse, it is now happening on the first Sunday of every month. Visit the SuperHappyDevHouse Aotearoa website to find out where is the next one.
