Halloween wouldn’t have been complete unless everybody dressed up. Lucky for me, my office is awesome and multiple dressed up.
My employer, DeckCommerce participated in the DevUp conference (formerly Days of .NET) this year. This meant that the company had a booth for recruiting. It was a fun place to gather and talk about the company to others in the community.
And no booth is complete without some sort of giveaway. We had a plastic thing that nobody could figure out. Once explained, it made sense, so I suggested that they have a contest for a creative use of it.

It was an interesting talking point, but a disappointing give away. But we live and learn as a company. Here are a few photos from the event itself.

It isn’t something our company does, so most of us left early to check out vendor booths.
Overall it was a good conference with lots learned. If you’re still wondering what the give away does, its a cell phone holder. Plug in your brick through the hole and place your phone on the ledge.
My current employer wanted to make a promotion video. We took two days out of work to film around the office. The project had started as a hand help iPhone video and moved to a full production. It turns out that iPhones are great, but not the quality that we were looking for. Lucky for us, we had Mike to help out. Mike is into photography and had some seriously fancy equipment and more importantly, knowledge how to use the equipment.
The video was an amazing change of pace for the office. We were not very productive for those two days, but it bonded us well. Below are two youtube videos. The first is the final product of all the work. The second will be a stop motion of the action around the filming.
