BarCamp was on last Saturday and it was great again. Lots of really interesting conversations both at BarCamp and at the pub afterwards (an important component of the whole BarCamp experience).
Some of the things I learnt
- Lots about facebook
- User Interface Design
- Mark Ups (eg HTML)
- Ruby! Ruby! Ruby! – Must Try Ruby!
- Social Innovation & Co Working
Once again, met lots of really great people and learned lots of great stuff.
The stand out session for the day for me was the session entitled WTF is Ruby. I did not know much about Ruby except that Twitter is built on Ruby but I came out of that session thinking I must try it. For these hard core programmers to say that Ruby has put the passion back into coding for them, it really sounds great.
