31 year old (talk) virgin – Follow up
This is a super quick post to say a big thanks to everyone who came along to Port80 yesterday. It was the first web design conference to be held in Wales, and was brilliantly organised and executed by Joel Hughes.
As I mentioned in my previous post this was my first speaking gig at a conference, so the day was filled with anticipation, nerves, excitement, many bottles of water and an entire pack of Wrigley’s Airwaves to help combat the heavy cold I’ve had all week.
I think it went well. Neither myself or my speaking partner Rob completely screwed up, no one threw anything at us, and some people even laughed. Those are good signs, right? People said some really nice things and twitter was buzzing on the #p80n hash tag.
I’ve just added our slides to Speaker Deck, so if you want to take another look, please do. If you have any questions or comments (good or bad) about our talk, drop me a tweet or leave a comment. I promise not to cry. Probably.
I know Joel and his team are taking a well deceived break, but at some point there should be some pictures, audio and video being added to the Port80 Events site. I’ll update this post when that happens.
I’m sure Port80 as a conference is here to stay. If what happened yesterday is achievable by 1 man (and his helpers) in the space of a few months, what happens next year will be pretty special I reckon.Tweet
