Last year it was thrilling enough that we even had this sort of event in Fort Worth; everyone in tech in DFW knows Addison, Irving, Frisco, Plano, Richardson and North Dallas are where you go for software and related events. It’s a circle of cities that has held tightly to this honor for years, and facilitated a self-fulfilling situation. Developers go because that’s where the events are, and the events are held there because developers go. Breaking into that cycle, even for a single occasion, was special in and of itself.
June is looming and I’m excited: the second-ever Cowtown Code Camp is being held on the 14th and I hope to make it.
