In Aberystwyth for iOS Dev UK which was amazing. I spoke on the last day so I was nervous the whole time, but it was a lovely and supportive environment. I learned a lot from the other talks, met some fabulous people and generally had a great time! So tired though. The edge of the country is a long way away.
Speakers are up for DigPen, including me!
Read The Hard Thing About Hard Things (amazing!), Easily Amused (meh), currently reading The Profitable Side Project.
Still re-watching Drop Dead Diva. I adore that show!
Product links Amazon.
London, just dinner at Stick and Bowl. In Aberystwyth, snack at Treehouse (tasty), dinner at Shilam Tandoori (tasty), the Marine Hotel (amazing selection of deserts) and Baravin (really good).
