Trampoline

An unconference for people to share the ideas, stories and skills that they find amazing, which we've been running since 2009 in Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide. I founded this with two amazing friends: Melina Chan and Steve Hopkins, though the teams for each city have all evolved with the input of many fantastic people.

Ben Askins made the first one happen back in 2007, and since then we've had two each year in Australia, plus a growing number in New Zealand, Europe and the USA. I've been part of the organising team for a few, and this event has been a big part of making the Ruby community in Australia extra-special.

The first of these conferences happened in 2013, and I was lucky enough to speak that year and the following. I then upped the ante and put together an amazing team to run the 2015 edition.

My first foray into event organising, I led the crew behind the initial Australian Discworld Convention in 2007 - a celebration of the Discworld series of novels by author Terry Pratchett. My involvement has become rather minimal, but it's still going strong (and I'm often running games of Werewolf).
