First ever Epik DevCon gets underway.
The Epik Developers Conference kicked off last night with a welcome reception at the Edgewater hotel in Seattle.
Right off the bat I’d say this is the coolest hotel for any domain name conference I’ve attended. The hotel is on the water — literally. It’s on a pier. You could literally drop a fishing line out the window and go fishing. (In fact, there’s a famous photo of The Beattles doing just that at the hotel).
Here’s the view from my room:
Epik isn’t sparing any expense for the event. Last night’s reception included what could be the world’s largest paella.
Formal sessions began this morning at the Bal Harbor Conference Center with a talk from Epik founder Rob Monster about the platform his company is building. Coming up next Luke Webster will talk about domain name acquisition. During lunch I will be on a panel with Chris Pirillo of LockerGnome.com about social media.
