On saturday I held a speech and co-host a “round table” at CodeCamp in Zagreb in front of a crowd of ~60. My presentation was well received and understood (at least I was told so) even though my Croatian is not perfect – English and hand gestures helped. The entire event was at high level with world-class speakers (not counting me in this category) worth attending.
And I have to tell that community in Croatia is amazing. They are passionate, communicative, skilled, some of them came even from Dubrovnik (500km) or Slavonija region, and lastly, they are willing to sacrifice entire warm sunny Saturday for an indoor event. OK, they got plenty of very useful swag, but still, they were there for the content. It is a pleasure speaking for such crowd and among great speakers.
