    We're back baby; and with a new name to boot! Welcome to The Great Dev Challenge (the event formally known as Melbourne Tech Trivia!) Calling all software engineers! The Great Dev Challenge takes everything that was good about Melbourne Tech Trivia and makes it better! It adds the vegemite to the toast, the ice to the esky, the anchovy to the Capricciosa; you know what we mean! Or maybe you don't and, if not, let me break it down. The Great Dev Challenge takes everything that is good about a trivia night and adds more dev. That's right a jam packed evening of software engineering quiz goodness for your consuming pleasure. Episode 4 - What's in a name includes a brand new set of questions exploring both the breadth and depth of the web, programming, hardware, ops and tech history. We are heading back to the software engineering heartland of Melbourne and hosting the event at Richmond Social, 157 Swan Street, Richmond. We are also introducing The Great Dev Challenge Wall of Fame! An enduring scoreboard, by company, forever noting which Melbourne tech institution reigns supreme in the challenge. Could it be you Iress? or you Rate My agent? or you REA? or you "insert your company name here..."? PRIZES, PRIZES, PRIZES Oh yes, prizes! The good people at Ippon will certainly be throwing in a few GREAT prizes although, right now, we have no idea what they will be... but fear not, they will be! You have to be in it to win it! Drinks will be available at bar prices as well as great meals from the kitchen at Richmond Social. So, why not make a night of it? Pull together a team from your workplace or just a group of techie friends and join us for a fun, safe and inclusive evening! Calling all software engineers! See you at The Great Dev Challenge!
