DZone Goods


Today I arrived home to find a neat little box waiting for me from my friends at

The package had been dispatched a couple of weeks ago, and was eagerly anticipated.  It was not disappointing, either – far from it. 

Some neat inclusions awaited, including the most perfect “hacker black” toned T-Shirt with a <dev> tag right there on the front.

Also included were some interesting items including a DZone coffee mug, a  USB key, note pad and two excellent developer refcardz.  There were also some standard regulars like stickers, cards and some MVP stuff.

One of my favourites items?  A stubby/beverage holder with the words “data nerd” proudly (and accurately) emblazoned on the outside.

The most fun inclusion?  Clearly the DZone office ICBM pack, which now grants me the limited power to launch foam missiles at unsuspecting co-workers.

Many thanks to the good people at DZone for sending out the box!  I’m strongly thinking of wearing the T-Shirt to Tim Berners-Lee’s keynote speech at the ANU on Friday morning.

Lastly, If you haven’t visited DZone yet, it’s a great site which I (obviously) recommend highly.  Bookmark it and enjoy..
