So I have been spending a lot of time in Reading recently, and I am loving every minute of it. In past couple of weeks I have seen more geeks that I dare comprehend, from going for dinner with the “Developer Developer Developer” crowd which lead to meeting a few interesting people I got talking to… and of course I did some research into what some of the bars are like with a friend and a few of the ddd crowd, I found the bars very good I must say. Particularly the 4 shots for £5 in one place – Yummy.
Last night I attended my first Tweetup in Reading, which was a lot of fun once I managed to relax a little. Thankfully I knew a few already but met some more cool people and it seems my mental database of who’s who is growing rapidly.
Was great meeting and chatting to a few of the tweeps I have been stalking following for a little while now in particular @Carocat and met @AmyKate again which is always fun! From what I am told last nights was one of the biggest for a while and I can’t wait to get a long to the next one, for any one who is interested check out @rdgtweetup and the #rdgtweetup hash tag and of course the site rdgtweetup.co.uk!
Professional Developers Conference 10 – #UKPDC10
And now we come to today’s activity of choice, the Professional Developers Conference or PDC for short, really looking forward to the event tonight as will be heading over to the Microsoft Reading Campus to see the Live HD stream and probably end up meeting a few more faces and who knows… I might just win the Windows Phone 7 which is up for grabs! Which will naturally lead to an exceedingly happy Dan and no doubt many more #WP7 related tweets and blogs.
I will also be tweeting away no doubt and hopefully a few blog posts will follow if/when something which takes my interest comes up, which no doubt it will.
You can follow my take on events tonight on my Twitter @Dansgalaxy also follow the #UKPDC10 hash for the UK view, and #PDC10 for the US/world!
