Velocity Contest Winners

by John Laban June 23, 2011 | 1 min read

Velocity 2011 was a blast!  Thanks to everyone who came by our booth to find more about PagerDuty, snag a t-shirt, and enter our contest.  We especially enjoyed talking to our existing customers about what features they like in our product, and what features they want us to build next.

As for the contest, that was a lot of fun too.  This is how it worked:

  • Conference attendees signed up for the contest at our booth (157 pager jockeys and/or SMS ninjas signed up in total).
  • We “paged” all of the contestants once over the course of the conference via SMS.
  • The fastest person to acknowledge the page (as measured by our servers) won an iPad2.
  • Runner-up prizes included 6 months of free PagerDuty service, as well as several BluAlert Bluetooth Bracelets.
  • Much fun was had by all.

Here is some of the PagerDuty crew posing with the grand prize winner, Allyson White from Cotendo.

And here is one of the runner up prizewinners, Greg Schechter from Google, stoked about his winning of a BluAlert bracelet.

Thanks to everyone who played, and we hope to see you again next year!
