A lot of people worked hard to make DDD5
what is was. Notably Clare Parr of Microsoft (without whom DDD would not have been possible), Craig Murphy
, Ian Cooper
, the rest of the DDD committee and all of the speakers. However, Dave McMahon
deserves a special mention. Dave did a session on XSLT Extreme which sounds like it was very well received but you might not be aware of the podcasting and videoing that Dave did all day Friday at the Community Leaders Day and all day Saturday at DDD. And of course after DDD there is Dave doing all of the post-production on the video and podcasts until 2:23am. It has been said that "Carl never sleeps
". All evidence seems to confirm this. However, I think it can also be said that "Dave doesn’t sleep much either" (it’s a bit lacking in the snappy and pithy department though). It is also true to say that "Dave and Rich don’t sleep much either" but sadly Rich couldn’t make it to DDD this time so the "Richard Costall And Dave McMahon Are Heroes" post will have to wait for another day.
Well done, Dave. I hope your wife, kids and boss understand that their loss is our gain.
