d.Construct aftermath

I am now back from d.Construct ‘05. It was great; the clear:left guys did a good job putting it all together. I have learned a number of things:

  • If you’ve got a widescreen laptop, change the scren resolution so that it’s not a widescreen resolution when you plug it into a projector, otherwise some of your presentation gets cut off and people laugh at you. I hasten to point out to people that it wasn’t a problem with S5 (or with Linux, for that matter, although apparently Macs can auto-sense the projector resolution? That’s really cool if true.)
  • It is possible to drink so much that you wish you were dead the next day. Superb evening out drinking; mAd respec’ to Budd, Rutter, Hammond, and Amy.
  • People are doing open-source Flash development stuff; it always seems weird to me to be proud of developing open-source code on a closed platform. Windows and the Mac are the same here.
  • My head still hurts a little bit.
  • There is a web community in the UK. We need to do more with it.

The talk I gave on DOM Scripting and Ajax is available.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
