Developer Eminence Lightning Talks in the Hursley Auditorium

Share this post:

imageETS assisted in the organisation of a set of Developer Eminence Lightning Talks in the Hursley Auditorium earlier this month. Topics covered included writing blog posts, Google Hangouts, hackathons and how to create podcasts. To really drive home how easy the latter can be, Jon McNamara and Adrian Warmam recorded a live, seat-of-the-pants edition of HursleyFM. To stimulate conversation and provoke questions from the audience, Adrian brought along his original Sinclair ZX80 (circa 1980) and stories of frozen milk cartons placed on the case to prevent over-heating!

Further Developer Eminence talks are planned for next year…
