Sydney JoomlaDay was held at UTS over the weekend, for which Anchor was a major sponsor. It was a great opportunity to mingle with members of the open source community and have a chat. The vibe was great and it was a very productive two days. Our CEO Keiran Holloway was also invited to give a talk: “Why Developers Hate Sysadmins”. Thanks to everyone who turned up, it got a good response from the audience. We’d also like to give a shout to Brenton of my iHub. He’s the winner of our prize giveaway, a fully-managed VPS for a whole year. Congratulations! Hope to see you next time, we’re looking forward to it!
Sydstart, the Australian conference for startup companies, is coming up soon and Anchor is the platinum sponsor! We want to spread the love by giving away some free tickets; just send us a mail and ask. We don’t have many and it’s first-come-best-dressed, so get in quick! What can you expect from Sydstart? Startups, and lots of them. As well as mingling with other startup-minded people, there’s a huge list of talks lined up throughout the whole day, some inspirational and educational, and lots of pitches. Even if you’re not involved in a startup yourself, it’s a great opportunity to learn about exciting new products and ideas. Sydstart is just two weeks away now, we hope we’ll see you there. 🙂
