As a proud Full Monty sponsor of the event, we were given the opportunity to gain some exposure – spreading the word of Web Applications UK. Not only was our logo splashed around, branded lanyards were created and distributed to all delegates in attendance. In keeping with the tradition of previous years, we also sent down Web Applications UK cakes to be enjoyed by all. This year we decided on cake pops – a lollipop of cake! They proved even more popular than last year’s cupcakes and were gone within minutes.
Our very own Quality Manager and Software Engineer, Clare Sudbery was given the responsibility of introducing Chris Wilson. Working for Microsoft for 15 years, Chris was responsible for implementing Cascading Style Sheets for Internet Explorer and had quite a big hand in shaping IE over the years so it was an honour to introduce him. Using the opportunity to say a little about Web Applications UK and the benefits of working here, Clare pointed out that it involves eating a lot of homemade cake – a strategy that will surely have those candidates beating down the door.
As it was Software Engineer, Ian Munro’s birthday, our team celebrated at the after party held at The Loft. Our team had great fun chatting with some of the speakers and other developers.
All of our Webbies came back with nothing but the highest of praise for the event, already asking to go again next year!
