Madt Fun at Christmas

December 16th 2011 is a date that many people in the Nigerian IT Community will remember for a long time to come. The date in itself is not special but the events of that day will go down in history as the first time members of the community came together just to have fun. Everyone looked forward to the day as Mr. Mobility<http://www.mobility.com.ng> himself (Yomi Adegboye<http://twitter.com/MrMobility>) promised to give out an android phone to the nbest dancer.
Biodun Thorpe (a tech blogger) started the party with a very energetic choreography which was very similar to an early morning work-out which the younger generation actively participated in while the bosses discussed in groups. The dance competition began and suddenly there were various styles with programmers attempting to dance while coding. Robert Edidiong eventually but not without serious challenge from Truston Ailende (a game developer).
We counted our blessings by listing the various innovations that emerged in 2011 before Emeka Okoye and Gbenga Sesan were given the honour of poping the champagne.
The after party soon started with old songs and it was fun as the older generation rocked the dance floor with steps from the late 80s to the late early 90s and yours truly had fun stepping again about 10years. The beautiful cake came in and cutting the cake, the party eventually wrapped up around 11pm.
