I have a small little prank I like to do at Dreamforce =)
As people line up outside the doors for the session I’m presenting in, I like to walk up to the attendees with a confused look on my face and say:
“Is this session worth going to?”
“Is the presenter any good?”
“I really doubt this session is worth waiting in line for!”
Sometimes people know and we share a hearty laugh. Sometimes people have no idea until they see me up on stage later. And then sometimes people start saying things about David Liu not realizing he’s standing in front of them pranking them:
“Funny story I actually was talking to you while we were waiting for your session to start. There was a big crowd outside waiting to go in and I was talking to you and a few other people. I didn’t recognize you so I was talking to you and was telling everyone that I learned how to code from SFDC99.com and from David Liu’s youtube videos. Then I saw you up there, it was pretty funny.”
OK maybe it might not be that funny but sadly these are the kind of things that make my day!!
(And for the record, the victim gave me permission to post this!)
See you at #DF17!
