Ithaca, NY If you take the DEV8D symbol “8D” and turn it 90 degrees counter-clockwise you get a laughing face, which is suitable for an unconference structured around a program especially designed to make developers happy. How do the organizers know this phenomena is real? At the 2009 event attendees collaborated on the development of a “Happyness-o-meter” to find out exactly how happy the event made attendees.
