June was a busy month.
- I went to Newcastle for the DIBI conference, which was quite excellent. I was very pleased with the talk I gave—called “One Web”. I think the talks were recorded on video so I hope they’ll be showing up on a video-sharing site before too long.
- I spoke on the Using Blue podcast about all sorts of design- and development-related topics.
- I went to An Event Apart Atlanta which was, as always, excellent. As usual, it was the people that really made the event so special.
- I made it back to Brighton just in time for Ampersand, which was genuinely wonderful …just ask anyone who was there.
- There was an excellent Skillswap featuring Ben Terrett and Ben Bashford that finished up with a lively discussion moderated by yours truly. You had to be there for the discussion, but you can listen to the two talks.
- Then I hopped back across the Atlantic for Indie Web Camp in Portland, which was inspiring and invigorating.
July is looking a lot calmer. I’m going to be in Brighton for the whole month. I will, however, be using the time to prepare for the onslaught of events in the coming months. In September alone, Brighton will play host to a whole slew of events falling under the banner of the Brighton Digital Festival:
I’m going to be spending my non-travelling time this month preparing a workshop to precede dConstruct. Keep an eye on the site for more details very soon.
Oh, and remember: tickets for dConstruct go on sale this Tuesday, July 5th.
