How did we get the tickets to Flutter Live? You might ask. Google had a form to apply for the tickets. We both applied and some weeks later we got a confirmation email from Google that we got the tickets.
It was a great opportunity to use Codemate’s Operation Wombat. It is a way to attend conferences and events with the company paying the expenses.
The acceptance process of Operation Wombat took only a couple of days. We spoke to our site manager Miika about the event. He was excited about the opportunity and told us to write a marketing plan, figure out the budget and schedule of the trip. Once done, we talked to our communications manager, Sanna, and got her approval for the marketing plan. Next day we got green light for our operation, so we started to buy plane tickets.
In our opinion, our internal Operation Wombat process was a flexible way to decide on event participation, and we are happy that it made our trip to the event possible.
