BarCamp Brighton

Last weekend we held our first BarCamp (blog) here in Brighton. 80 or so geeks attended both days, many were here anyway because of Friday’s excellent dConstruct.

Jane took excellent pictures and many of the talks are listed in the schedule on the BackNetwork which Madgex kindly provided. My talk isn’t listed (duh, bad me) – I did an ad-hoc and thankfully smooth presentation (pic) on ‘sales for geeks’ recounting some of my experiences building my own companies over the last few years.

We were blessed with excellent food which was sponsored by Inuda, Nixon McInnes, Ryan Carson, BT OsmoSoft, Microsoft and RealMacSoftware.

Thanks to Matt Weston for organising the food and to Paul Silver as main organiser. Thanks also to Glenn and staff at Madgex for hosting the event and keeping it running so smoothly.

I also got to meet Jeremy Keith who will be speaking at next month’s £5 App.

Roll on the 2nd Brighton BarCamp!
