Today, Whole Punk is co-sponsoring Ladies Learning Code in Victoria. They’re doing a workshop on responsive design, and I couldn’t be prouder to put our dollars towards them. About 20 seconds after Erin announced sponsorships for the year, I was standing in line to make sure we got one.
This morning I walked in about half an hour before the workshop with a huge box of swag. Notepads and stickers from Whole Punk. All with our logo on it of course. I’ve got a goal of getting our logo into every tech shop in Victoria, and this seemed like a great vector.
(If you know a Victoria tech company without our notepads, please shoot me an email.)
As we were passing the swag out to every seat, one of the coordinators mentioned that this wasn’t something that any of the other sponsors had done before. It was obvious, now that I’d done it, but bringing swag just wasn’t the norm.
Those are my favourite ideas. The ones that are obvious now that I’ve done it.
