Operation Port 80 – Sydney, 24 Sept


AWIA Port80 Sydney Meetup

The Australian Web Industry Association have been months in intense planning,  endless rehearsals,  mock operations, countless hours of covert information gathering have gone into yet another year’s Operation Port80 – Sydney,  (well would you believe a few minutes via email).

Following on from the intense pizza inspired discussions at the Pumphouse in 2006 and the challenging quiz night of the Quarryman in 2007 we are now having another Port 80 on the evening before Web Directions 2008.

This  seems to be coming a bit of a tradition with the decent of the Perth Port 80 Posse on the humble town of Sydney, and why should 2008 be any different.

So this year it’s all happening again, the Sydney Port 80 is on the 24th September, 6:30 pm at the:

Harlequin Inn (map)

Cnr Harris & Union Streets

Pyrmont NSW 2009

So if you’re in the lull between the intense Web Directions South workshops and the conference proper or are just a Sydney web industry local come down and join us.

Radharc (that’s me), Clever Starfish (on behalf of famous SitePoint blogger Kay Smoljak) and Free Australia (Canberra) Wireless (via Nathanael Boehm) are  slapping down bar tabs; if you want to also assist you are more than welcome, just contact Miles Burke for details.

So spread the word, bring your friends, colleagues and grandmother, all are welcome to this very informal event, no pressure, just web peeps sitting around enjoying a few mild ales (if we can find any Pint glasses!).  There will also be few giveaways, like others, and the such, of rare collectors items. I can’t say anymore you will have to attend to find out won’t you.
