In case folks don't know, the top Survey raffle prize is REALLY COOL. If you aren't familiar, a Philips Signe Floor Lamp is a smart lamp that's meant to be placed in the corner of a room. It casts a gorgeous wash of light across your walls and you can customize the colors in so many ways. It also features voice activation and a ton of other features.

If you've ever admired the beautiful light scenes behind your favorite Twitch streamer, they probably have one of these.

Can you tell that I wish it was ethical for me to win this? πŸ˜‚

Questions about the badge to receive when attending, do I have to register with a specific email or name? I did not get a badge for attending last year, so I guess I missed something out. :-(

Ah, so the email you use to register needs to match your CodeNewbie Community email. I'll award you last year's badge! I don't think there will be any issue this year as we requested your CodeNewbie handles directly in the registration form!
