Hosted a live conference
Managed a project
So, we did a thing: 420 attendees, 18 speakers, and 2 massive days: #rubyconf_au 2018 was an immensely special event, more than 13 months in the planning. As much as I would like to take all the credit, none of it would have happened without Mel Kaulfuss.

Mel was incredible in every respect: truly the heart and soul of this event, and the absolute master of getting shit done.

I am lucky to have been able to call her a colleague, and I am grateful and proud to call her a friend. ❤️ So... thank you, Mel.

Also, sorry about my giant mega-ego taking up so much of that stage ✨ I do hope we get to do that again sometime.

I'd also love to thank all of our other organisers, volunteers, sponsors and of course, Ruby Australia. Without the trust and support of this incredible community we would never have been able to make any of this happen.
