68: Brett Doesn't Do Conferences



Brett and Andrew discuss Andrew's talk at the Release Notes conference in Chicago. How to do conferences correctly and why Brett absolutely hates them.

High points:

  • Which of Andrew's presentation jokes worked and which didn't
  • Brett and Andrew's experience at WWDC.
  • How long it takes Brett to forget that he hates conferences and fish and chips.
  • Andrew suggests "OrthogonalCon" and Brett imposes several rules that basically make it not a conference at all.


"Everybody hates accountants. Accountants hate accountants." -- Andrew
"Money is far more efficient when you're doing something specific with it." -- Andrew
"That sounds like a fate worse than death to me." -- Brett
