Overheard at Drupalcon
A few quotes from a an interesting couple of days:
"This [the registration table] is nice: it's all really nerdy guys and really hot girls. I like the future... Let me at this corporate campus." (franz)
robertDouglas: "I was doing so much underpaid work, like 'let me do this whole website that takes six months... for $300' type stuff."
moshe: "I remember those days. You can't even talk to me now for $300."
"I am not able to code everything. There is too much to do." (chx)
"You need that charismatic leader... Chant! Chant! Chant! Drink. Die." (jjeff)
It's been a good time here. Corporate campus and Sunnyvale aren't as much fun as a University campus (more open) and Downtown Vancouver (less driving), but the level of attendance and intensity is up.
It feels like the End of the Beginning. I do believe this is the year that things will tip and change quite a lot.
Also, if you're in college and you want to spend the summer getting paid by Google to write Drupal code, you can apply here this weekend.
...Later on, back at the Zack shack:
Farsheed: So what goes on at these things?
Zack: I imagine drugs, sex, stripping; things like that.
Farsheed: What? That's the opposite of what I thought! I thought it was a bunch of guys sitting around with laptops and pizza!
Me: Oh! You're talking about Super Happy Dev House; they're talking about the stripper-party.
