Monktoberfest 2022 returned at a smaller size and different venue in the new pandemic world. With vaccine and daily testing requirements, along with a very open and airy venue at Thompson’s point, attendees could relax a bit with some COVID risks.
Stephen has his usual annual wrap-up blog post, and Stephen also noted the #20YearsOfRedMonk flash hashtag with thanks from many, many attendees.
Redmonk has an overview & explainer video from attendee interviews too and a playlist of 2022 talks.
