The first Yahoo! Developer Network in Jordan finally happened today November 29, 2010 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Amman. Just as expected, some exciting audience and big speakers too showed up and gathered their knowledge together. I’ve been lucky to be one of the organizing team of the event, started from the very morning with such passion really made my day! I always liked meeting new faces with that passionate smile, and I saw it today, especially with the best team I’ve ever met HBPro from Beirut.
Christian Heilmann from Yahoo! did a very great job talking about YUI, Geo technologies, YAP, and YQL. All attendees brought their laptops and joined the coding games with him, thanks to the sponsor Umniah for the WiFi. Questions were answered all the times, a live streaming was on for sure, you can watch them recorded here.
If you missed it today, here is a very simple video about it (I couldn’t record things as usual, got busy) , Enjoy:
Especial thanks goes to HBPro team (Samer Chidiac, Ali Rebaie, Vanessa Maalouf, Fashen Van Shuhen and Majd Yousef) , Umniah team, Hyatt Amman team and all the attendees. Looking forward to meet you all again!
