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 …

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

Flash on the Beach 08

Yipee! Ordered my Flash on the Beach 08 ticket this morning. The tickets went on sale this weekend (just gone) and already 150 tickets have been sold. The first 250 tickets can be purchased at the reduced Super Early Bird price of £199 for the 3-day conference pass. They are also holding two pre-conference workshops on the Sunday (28th Sept), I have booked for the Papervision3D session.

Currently, there are 94 Super Early Bird tickets left. So get in there quick if you want to save some money.

At the time of writing, the confirmed speaker list (with links to their personal websites) includes …

I’m really looking forward to it. I went to both the 2006 and the 2007 conference and it is a fantastic event. We’re so lucky to have an event like this held in the UK. I always come away from it inspired, fired up and wanting to learn more. Many thanks to John Davey for organising this awesome event every year.

If you haven’t been before, get your tickets and see for yourself. I’ll see you there …
