Minnedemo 15 was well done!  Congrats minne* for putting on a great event!  The energy was amazing.  Heaps of good people.

The event sold out a few short hours!

 

New Venue

This time around we were in a new venue: The Riverview Theater.

My favorites

Move Eye

These guys told us about their Minnesota based funding.  I won’t be surprised when they go big or get bought out.

Dash

Beautiful user customizable dashboards! These guys had an amazing UI.  http://www.thedash.com

Their stuff was all SVG based and scalable.  This looks like a well done product!

Unbenchable

I’m not much of a fantasy sports guy, but this dude won me over by revealing that he started with a fantasy Ultimate Frisbee game!

Others

Make a Bonsai

I enjoyed the fractal math descriptions of how they built this application.

TransAuth

 

In the break between sessions the MC took a poll on Phone OS usage in the room:

  • It was clearly split between iOS and Android
  • Only one person was willing to admit using a Windows phone
  • Nobody spoke up for Blackberry

The MC also allowed folks to plug local user groups, conferences, etc.

One guy got up and said he also had a Windows phone… and that he works for Microsoft and got quite the laugh.

Post Party

The theater showed the classic Hackers afterwards.  Wow 1995 was 18 years ago -that’ll put things in perspective.

Many folks stayed to chat and grab another drink.

All in all an excellent event.  Makes me really proud of the tech scene in Minnesota!
