Flash on the Beach Day 1 Part 2

! Warning: this post hasn't been updated in over three years and so may contain out of date information.


The reality of the 5th struck me halfway through the afternoon: the car park at Lewes station shuts at 5pm and day 1 of the conference shuts at 5pm too. I contemplated possible quantum solutions, but to no avail. Luckily the Flash on the Beach organisers came to my rescue. The 4-5pm session on Tuesday, by Joshua Davis hadn’t looked very interesting, so John Davey kindly swapped it with the Monday one, and so I was able to leave early without missing anything important to me. Not sure how the organisers knew I needed them swapped, but thanks anyway.

One of the the two sessions I attended in the afternoon was Carole Guevin‘s session on Self Promotion, which was OK, but nothing exciting. The other was a very impressive speaker, Hoss Gifford, singing his own praises. He ran through a bunch of projects that he had been involved with. and went into what had gone on behind the scenes. Neither was particularly informative to a software developer, but both were thought provoking.

I’ll end this post with a thought for you: do you know everything? If not then you ignorant. This of course means we are all ignorant, so why does the word carry so much negative baggage?

  1. Great, rub it in why don’t you! 😉

    One of my criticisms of Flash on the Beach 07 was the number of “speakers” who were doing little more than showing off what they had designed. But I’m very much a developer who does bits of design, so I’m likely in a very small minority amongst those there. I saw Robert’s work the next day and loved it, but that was enough admiring others’ work for me for the whole conference.
