I've just had another Paradoxes of API Design presentation at GeeCON at Krakow. This time I had to talk for three hours (get the slides). Quite a long talk for an occasional speaker like me. I knew I would need a sugar to handle that. That is why I stood in front of the entrance with HtmlForFood sign and hoped to receive some. And I did receive one candy, one apple and one mandarin. Thanks a lot for the food donation!
As a pay back for this kind of support I decided to donate one copy of TheAPIBook to the audience. Thus I am starting yet another HtmlForFood contest. Dear Geecon 2011 participants, write your signs, take photos, end them to firstname.lastname@example.org! The copy of TheAPIBook will be given to the most hungry winner on Friday, May 13, 2011.
The list of submitted photos can be found at mailing list archive. Thanks a lot for your participation. I enjoyed the desperate look, the artistic style, the dedicated look and at the end I decided to give TheAPIBook to Damian's desperate arrangement. Thanks a lot for participating.
The conference itself was amazing. Good content before and after party, perfect treatment from organizers, beautiful and lively town. I can only recommend visiting GeeCON.
Only one drawback to complain about. I've mentioned that in 1992 we had a lecture at university about Internet. Sure, teaching internet at universities is something people can hardly imagine these days, but that was not the problem. The problem was response of an organizer: At that time I was six! Geeee, I must be getting old!
