d.Construct – the conference

Well yes – that was certainly a very, very good way to spend a weekend – there is so much that I could be talking about that I have split the weekend into three bumper packed fun packed posts – I WILL waffle so bear with it, it will be worth it!

This first half is to cover the conference itself Read more

off to d.Construct

Hooray – what turned out to be a little drink turned out to be a rather large one – this is why I am up at 2.15am trying to write and also trying to pack my bags (which I had hoped that I would have done beforehand but of cause as I fell asleep about 4 hours ago I have not done) Read more

backnetworking and after conference drinking

With just about a week to go before the much mentioned d.Construct get under way I want to thank the maker (Glenn Jones) of the d.Construct backnetwork – it really is a thing of beauty. Not only has it allowed for me it see what other people have written about the conference but also allowed me to set up a list of people I know who are attending, get yet another picture and profile of me up on the web and most greatly of all won the argument with work colleagues that microformats are very very cool indeed!

I’m off to the seaside – and a conference!

As I have been booked up to attend d.Construct for well over a month now I think its about time that I actually said something about it. In a nutshell I am rather excited. I have always been a fan of coding up things (mainly because I can’t design for toffee) and all the recent developments in the web gets me really excited and ehtused as to what may well be possible in a number of years (if not months if Yahoo! have anything to say about it) over the web and a with a web browser and this is essentually what d.Construct is going to be about – a bunch of technically minded people talking code, talking web and in my case probably talking a load of bollocks!

@media – day 2

After the exploits of the night before and openning day of the conference I arrived at day 2 certainly in not the state I would have hoped for; lets be honest I was fucking hung-over and the walk to the venue hadn’t helped clear any cobwebs! However with a packed day ahead of me I sucked it up, got to drinking water, consumed a number of sandwiches (which I still believe are the BEST hangover cure) and made my way to my seat for the second and final day to start. I think I will remember this day for a long time to come as one of the best since moving back to London Read more
