15 days, 8 countries and zillions of developers

Tuesday, December 29, 2009 | 5:00 PM

Leaving October spring weather in Sydney for a trip around Europe was not easy. But any doubts about the wiseness of our trip disappeared as we walked into the first GTUG event in London where 300+ developers showed up to learn more about the Google Wave APIs. We met two of the most prolific wave developers there (you might know them from extensions such as Rssybot and Votely) as well as meeting David Crane who asked for 1000 accounts for Global Youth Panel to debate climate change. As we flew from country to country, we continued to meet more developers whose enthusiasm for Wave gave us the energy to overcome our jetlag and see the sights of Europe.
