Laptop Refresh

October 29th, 2012 by Adrian

Today is a sad (but refreshing) day. Last night I decided to give my MacBook laptop a freshen up. It was getting a bit slow and I only had about 150MB left on the hard drive. So I decided to reformat the hard drive and reinstall OSX, CS6 and my other apps (Chrome, WebStorm, Coda etc). Whilst these were installing I also started to pick at the stickers that I have had on my laptop since 2008. A lot of these stickers have memories attached to them: enjoyable conferences, people I’ve met, inspirational speaker sessions, technologies invested in.

Obviously, once I had started there was no going back. So, with a rag, a bottle of white spirit, some short finger nails and three hours later, I present to you, my refreshed MacBook …

CodeKen 2012 – Online Conference

October 18th, 2012 by Adrian

CodeKen 2012 is an online conference happening on Tuesday 6th November 2012 via Google Hangouts On Air. The speakers include Seb Lee-Delisle talking about his PixelPhones project and Estelle Weyl talking about mobile web development. The schedule can be seen here. The schedule mentions Day 1 and Day 2, but elsewhere on the site it says it is a one day event, so I’m not sure which it is. Anyway, go ahead and register, so that you are notified about the start nearer the time.

The Graphical Web

October 17th, 2012 by Adrian

Last month there was a conference held in Zurich, Switzerland at the Institute of Cartography and Geoinformation called The Graphical Web. It used to be called SVG Open, but this time the name change is to reflect the wider graphical web technologies (SVG, Canvas, CSS transitions, CSS transforms, tooling etc).

You can see what the schedule was here. One of my favourite speakers was there, Joshua Davis.

The main reason for this blog post is to highlight the fact that they recorded all the sessions and have put them online for free. There are some really interesting sessions here. Check them out below …

Here is a full list of the sessions …

My Flash On The Beach Schedule

September 26th, 2010 by Adrian

Flash On The Beach 2010

Well, it’s that time of the year again where the great Flashers from all around The World decend on Brighton, England. That’s right folks, Flash On The Beach is upon us once again. I’m really looking forward to it again this year (no different to any previous year really). Looking forward to coming away feeling enthused, inspired, educated and though provoked.

John Davey (the conference organiser) has only gone and made choosing what to see even harder this year by including a fourth track. Thanks John ;¬) Like it wasn’t hard enough trying to pick what to see (and what to miss).

At this moment in time, I have penciled in the following schedule …

Day 1: Monday 27th September 2010

Day 2: Tuesday 28th September 2010

Day 3: Wednesday 29th September 2010
