A few days ago was the Barcelona Developers Conference (aka BCNDevCon) an event I collaborate with. Is pretty amazing being part of something just for the pure action of joy, fun, and geekiness. The founder team is amazingly creative, always propose things that are so wicked that you just can’t say no.
This is the third edition and it has been amazing! If you are in Barcelona and love technology, videogames, robotics, and geeky stuff…then this event is a must!
2013 theme is about Lost TV show as you can see on the below “The initiation” video is presenting the beginning of the conference, more fun videos are here!.
This event always recharges my batteries of “making things happen” as it is a group of entrepreneurs that put high levels of time, energy and illusion to converting paper ideas into reality, along with the collaborators/volunteers. Is not easy to find people that actually do stuff, this experience has been so inspiring for me, because I can see that it is possible to have personal projects, it is possible to convert them into tangible things. It is possible if you want. As the great Thomas Edison said, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration”.
Those three days were actually a turn on to start learning more about design thinking. So, if you have some interests, make them an active part of your life. You will receive lots of benefits from it :)
Note. After writing this post, my favorite developer Dani Cueto created a very fun video that really sums up the spirit of the conference during the three days. Please see minute 10, where the developers into the 24hr hackathon received the pizza guy xD and no comments on the beer posing beginning!
