Check out the 2nd CSS Nite event in Okinawa. This time, more than 150 peoples attended! We met a lot of talented local Web designers and developers acting in Okinawa.
In the first day, some of presenters had been there from Tokyo to have sessions to the audiences, and other sponsor companies such as Adobe, Microsoft, also Opera had presentations, demonstrations, exhibition booth in the event. On our booth, we exhibited our products on PC, Mobile and Devices.
In our presentation, we introduced Opera Dragonfly which is bundled Web Developer’s tool on Opera 9.5. We demonstrated the debug works uses Opera Dragonfly running on PC syncing with a Web page browsed by Opera Mobile 9.5 running on a Windows Mobile base smart-phone WILLCOM 03. It was our first time opportunity to demonstrate the technique in Japan that seemed the audiences were really interested in the debugging work operation between cross platform devices. We got many questions after that.
In the 2nd day when was for the enjoyment and social networking sea side party among participants and local Web industry peoples. There was a venue on a beach we enjoyed BBQ, local beers and liquors. Also we played treasure haunting game on the beach. The some of prizes were provided by Opera. A few winners got brand new Opera 9.5 T-shirts.
Personally that was my first time to visit in Okinawa where awesome island. There are beautiful landscape, very clean ocean, cute animals and fishes, yummy cuisines and nice local peoples who have a special hospitality.
And my most impressed thing was I had been able to meet several Opera users in Okinawa. They always love Opera and introduce our products for their local friends there. It was my pleasure to meet and talk with them.
