CSSConf AU 2015 - That’s a wrap!

I’m coasting on a post CSSconf AU and Decompress high right now, still 1 week (and many hours catch up sleep) later.

Last week the 2nd ever CSSConf AU was held in Melbourne at Arts House. Nearly 350 developers came together to listen to an impressive set of carefully curated talks from our local and international frontend/CSS heroes. A common thread ran through the conference, and that was one of community, sharing and learning from one another. The buzz of friendly energy during the breaks and social events was palpable :simple_smile:

I want to personally thank Ben Schwarz, Glen Maddern, Tim Lucas, Michael Mifsud and Cade Diehm – they ran a conference (with the help of an army of volunteers) that really exemplified a true commitment to diversity. They did this without accolade. The face presented from the stage to all attendees spoke volumes.

I was honoured to have been given the opportunity to MC at the event. My public speaking debut was both nerve racking but awesome. So great to be able to contribute in a small way to such an amazing conference. I was overcome by the feels when I introduced the last speaker Una Kravets as she spoke about her commitment to building a more inclusive and diverse open source community.

Decompress - organised by Mark Dalgleish - also followed in the same vein, a day of fun, hacking together and next level lightning talks.

Those three days last week left me feeling so lucky that I’m in amongst such an amazing group of people – and with the knowledge that everyone in our community has something to contribute, to teach and to learn from each other.
