In just a few weeks, Atlassian will be participating in the Game Developer Conference in our home town of San Francisco. This is our first year at the show and we really wanted to make a splash.
Last weekend, I watched the documentary “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters” It’s an awesome flick about the World Champions in the classic arcade game, Donkey Kong. The star of the show is Steve Wiebe, and he currently holds the world record in Donkey Kong Jr. and is runner up for Donkey Kong classic (he’s gone back and forth on the champion title for the last few years). After watching the documentary I thought, “wouldn’t it be cool if Steve would come play Donkey Kong at the GDC Confernece?” Well, Steve has agreed to do just that.
Steve will be at the Atlassian booth (#2132) March 11-13th from 10AM-6PM hanging out, signing autographs and most importantly trying to beat the Donkey Kong world record. On Friday March 12th, Atlassian will sponsor a happy hour for GDC attendees at John Collins bar and Steve will be there as well.
If you’re going to be around for the Conference don’t miss stopping by to say “hi” to Steve, get a free drink on Atlassian and possibly see an elusive “kill screen!”
