Live from ThingConf

I am here live at ThingConf. The official conference for Thing, quite possibly my favourite computer Thing out there. There is a giant assembly of speakers from all over the world, all gathered to discuss Thing. I just got here and I’ve already got a Thing sticker that I slapped on my laptop! I took a picture of myself right next to the ThingConf standee and tweeted it out to my friends and loved ones.

One of the coolest parts is that the creator of Thing is here, to discuss what’s still to come to Thing! This morning I got a chance to meet him and thank him for Thing. It’s really been a pretty big part of my computer talking career, and it’s pretty nifty of him to put together a whole conference for me to level up on my Thing knowledge!

I went to a pretty interesting workshop this morning, where an experienced Thing developer showcase some of the lesser know techniques n’ tricks that Thing can pull off. It left me feeling: Thing sure can do anything.

After the workshop, everyone went to mingle in the lobby. The lobby was buzzing with discussion about Thing. People were connecting with all the different ways they used Thing. Jimmy Smith was there, he wrote a book about Thing. People were very eager to talk to him and let him know how much they helped their overarching knowledge of Thing.

Tonight there is a dinner for computer talkers. I am going to put on that one shirt I brought just in case of an event like this! I am going to mingle with other Thing developers, find out where they work, how they use Thing. It really should be something!

Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing Thing!
