Dave Pearcey, Full stack developer at Pro:Direct Sport LTD, UK:
“For me it was also facing my social anxieties, knowing that it’s expected of me to talk to fellow attendees. That was never an issue when we were there though... “
Elizabeth Gibbons, Director of Client Services at Zeroseven, Australia:
“I’m also not a developer, so I was anxious I’d be alone in a corner by myself while all the developers talked technical…”
Laura Vogt, Content Editor & Umbraco Festival Organiser at byte5 digital media, Germany:
“At byte5, attending Codegarden is the initiation rite for every new employee. But honestly, it was much more than that to me…”
