Fri 12.02.11 – After a lovely three days at the Qt Dev Days 2011, a visit with family Kim-Hoffman and the newest family member Ms. Isabelle, dinner at In-n-Out with Jason and Ernie, and then lunch today in San Francisco with Faruk Ateş, it is now time to return home to SoCal.
Fare the well, San Francisco, I’m driving home.
Thurs 12.01.11 – As the Qt Dev Days 2011 wrap up and are over, I present to you a summary of the photos I took over the course of the three days of the training and conference.
I really enjoyed and learned a good deal over the course of the Qt Dev Days. One of the best parts is the high ratio of nice and smart folks I met and the conversations were good. I attend at least 3-4 conferences a year and this one rates up there with Mobilism for my fave conference of the last 2 or so years in terms of content and inspirational conversation with other attendees.
Big thanks to Qt, Nokia, Digia, Futurice and all the other sponsors for putting on a great conference.
Even bigger thanks to all the lovely folk I met, the good conversations on mobile & development that were had, and letting me take your photos. Y’all rock.
See everyone next year, if not sooner.
My Qt Dev Days conference notes:
Qt Dev Days 2011, Day 1: Training
Qt Dev Days 2011, Day 2: Conference Sessions
Qt Dev Days 2011, Day 3: The Last Day
Wed 05.12.10 – Day 3: The Last Day of the Big Adventure. Today we worked in small groups and pairs on the various bits. The best part is towards the end when we were sent out in our pair groups for 20 minutes outside of the Hotel Kabuki to take funny/fun/silly photos for a prize. My photo of Petri on a concrete pedestal was the winner, Petri won a large bottle of good sake. Go Petri, Go!
I would like to extend an big thanks to the Firefish folk for putting on a well-organized workshop and to the Nokia folk for coming a long way to workshop with North American tech folk. While at times it was hard, by the end of today much had been gathered and gained.
Tues 05.11.10 – Day two: the day we workshopped in a conference room at the Kabuki Hotel from 9:30am until 7pm discussing a wide variety of topics around smart phones, until we were all sapped. Then we took cabs down to Farallon for a delightful and reviving dinner in the 4th floor submarine themed ballroom at the Kensington Park Hotel.
I left Tues 4.20.10 in the morning and returned Thurs 4.22.10 in the evening. It was a very quick turn around time trip from Seal Beach to San Francisco to co-present with Cindy Li on Mobile UX for the UX Web Summit. I enjoyed the Summit, I enjoyed presenting on one of my favorite topics: designing for the mobile web, I enjoyed co-presenting with Cindy, I enjoyed seeing various friends, and I enjoyed my drive home with my brother, who happened to be in SF at the same time for work.
Big Thanks to Cindy Li and the Matt Harris for hosting me and having me at their apartment!
