Last week Jenna and I flew down to San Diego, CA to meet over a hundred web designers and developers at the second annual ValioCon 2012.
Held at the beautiful Hyatt in Mission Bay, not only did we get to see adorable baby seals (who barked loudly throughout the day), we also got to listen to speakers give presentations on a wide range of topics relevant to our industry as well as our personal lives. Amir educated us about Node.js, while Krystyn spoke about finding happiness in the work you do.
The Phuse had a unique opportunity as sponsors of the event to meet great people as well as mine the attendees for potential candidates to join our growing team. We met with a few people who were interested, and can’t wait to see what the future holds!
While the majority of talks were given by people building awesome products, encouraging everyone else to do the same, we found that the overarching theme was for everyone to do what they love, and find happiness in doing it every day.
We’d like to thank Drew Wilson and his team from Valio for putting on such a great conference, and hope to be at another ValioCon in the near future!
If you want to read a few of the most memorable quotes we heard while there, you can find a nice long list of them here.
