DevFestMD 2017

I ditched work today and drove into Baltimore for DevFestMD instead…it was a blast! It took place at Betamore at City Garage, which is a really cool space in Port Covington, just across the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge. There were lots of interesting talks, plus code labs (Go, Kotlin, and more!).

At the end, they had a drawing for some cool gadgets. I didn’t win anything, but that’s okay. It was a fun day!
