DemoCamp wrap up for 2008!

Whoa, the year is gone already…

We all met up at Rare Method last night (thanks to Tom and Jillian for letting us use the space and getting everything organized) for DemoCamp12. It was a packed house and we got through three great Demos.

Mike Tighe and his boyz kicked it off with trainit.ca – funny the crowd had just been talking about the problems with Calgary Transit the day before on twitter. What a great example of seeing a need and building something better than what is currently available. We’re looking forward to getting updates on the project.

Next up was Leif Baradoy with Christmas Future. Great idea, good way to give. While Leif didn’t follow the ten minute format, he certainly kept the crowd engaged. Leif says a year-round website is on the way, so keep an eye out for that! Also: we hear through the grapevine he is an excellent Ultimate player.

Last was a Demo of GWABs.  Walking through the new website, the desktop fighting and some of the training contracts. If you’d like an invite to the Beta – please drop us an email!

 The BarCamp Crew met up after to talk about the plan for 2009. Stay tuned!

    Thanks to everyone for putting up with me going over time! It was stunning to connect with the community.

    I’m not sure if I’d call myself an excellent ultimate player, but i do like to run, jump, catch frisbees, and then go for beer.
