Best of PDC 08

by: Per Bjurström

Almost every time at the PDC we talk about watching the best sessions on video when we get home, both for people that missed some sessions or for those of us that weren’t there at all.

This time around we collected the top 3 sessions from the whole team of 15 people and made a list with the best sessions. We’ll start watching them today :-)

So, here it is. Project “Velocity” was without doubt the winner but the number of votes decreases quickly further down so don’t take the order too seriously on the double-digit numbers.
