Throughout the day I kept thinking in 10 years time how cool it would be to say I was at the first ever WDCNZ. Speaking to attendees during the event I got the sense that everyone felt this was the start of something special.
It is great to have an event dedicated to developers keen to build amazing web applications and wanting to hear about shiny new things. I particularly loved the fact that the conference catered to all types of web developers – whether you’re a node.js novice or an MVC master, there was something for everyone.
Xero was delighted to be able to send along the majority of our development team to soak up the goodness and encourage them to keep pushing the limits. This fits in perfectly with our Xero Labs day, when they get to work on their own projects and experiment with some of the exciting new things they heard about at WDCNZ.
Xero was proud to sponsor the day and now that you’ve had a taste we’re already looking forward to seeing how big this can be next year.
If you feel the same way we do about web development, take a look at our careers page and drop us a line.
