This is the first time that TypeMock had a Trade Show Booth. We googled and read all the blogs about creating a Trade Booth and I must tell you that we put a lot of effort into this.
There is allot of production work to do. From renting the booth, creating the art, getting little bits and pieces working together. (You might call this the build system – and it always takes more resources then you expect).
We decided that we are not going to have any brochure. I remember going to these shows, collecting all the brochures just to leave them on my desk for a couple of months until they reach the bottom of my todo pile, gather dust just to be thrown out.
Instead we created a “Be Agile – Mock the System” cool promotion movie to play on a plasma screen, and fixed up a cool Demo to show wandering developers how cool TypeMock is. Of course we had a fish bowl full of jelly-beans. But I think that the highlight were Toma and Alisia our amazingly agile assistances who wore a small wireless LCD screens playing the movie. Real Cool.
Here are some pictures. A big thanks to all the people who put time and effort into creating it. Notice the new TypeMock Logo comming out soon.
