2014 Monday, 21th July
I returned to the UK (and specifically Brighton) after six years in Singapore.
Having eighteen-month-old twins I decided that a smart idea was to run a ruby conference for 180 people, despite not really knowing any local Rubyists. I blatantly copied the format of the RedDotRuby Conference I’d started in Singapore and transplanted it to the Brighton Dome on the sunny south coast.
And the sun shone, Terence & Zak were dressed as Jedi, Laurent Sansonetti live coded an Android app on stage and Aaron Patterson giggled the conference closed and much fun was had by all.
No-one died in the sweltering conditions, so I’m basically calling it a win.
