d.Construct 2005 Rundown | November 12, 2005
d.Construct turned out to be an excellent event and went off without a hitch. It was great to see so many friendly and familiar faces all assembled under one roof.
Just a shame that we couldn’t squeeze more people into the venue. Next year we definitely plan to find a slightly larger venue.
I spent most of the day running around with our new company digital SLR camera, snapping pictures of the speakers and attendees.
You can see the results in my d.Construct 2005 photoset and the larger, d.Construct 2005 flickr group. If you are featured in any of these photos, feel free to add a note or comment to let everybody know who you were.
We had a fantastic line up of speakers who gave some great presentations.
