Pottermore at LeakyCon
Last week, we were invited to give a guest presentation at LeakyCon 2011 in Orlando, USA. This gathering of over three thousand Potter fans was a fantastic stage for us to showcase some of the completed areas of Pottermore and – although we started with a few technical gremlins – we really enjoyed being able to reveal the site. It was great to preview some of the functionality, give glimpses of the new J.K. Rowling content, and show behind-the-scenes artwork (such as the early concept sketches for Ollivanders, above) to such an enthusiastic audience.
The whole time was hugely enjoyable for us and we cannot thank everyone at LeakyCon enough; the event was brilliantly organised and great fun. We would also like to thank everyone who took the time to talk to us while we were there; we hope we answered all your questions and, remember, you can find a detailed question and answer list in our previous Insider post.
