Flash on the Beach 07 Presentation Files

FOTB 07. What can I say. Incredible. First off let me say a very big thank you to John Davey. John did a great job, I can only guess the amount of organization involved in Flash on the beach, the speaker list and session line up were brilliant, and the shwag was top draw, both for attendees and speakers. It was a pleasure and an honor to have the chance to be involved in a presenting capacity. Thank you for inviting me John.

At the event I presented a session that discussed the issues of Localisation, and to a lesser extent my new love, Mobilisation. This was my first time presenting at a larger event like this. Certainly I was nervous, and I am sure that there were tell tale cracks in my voice a few times as I went through my slides. As I got in to the flow of the presentation I think I settled in a little.

I did have a slight issue with timing, which meant I rushed the last few slides, unfortunately, as a result I had to drop one of the examples. It also meant that I missed the opportunity to ask questions of the people that attended if they had any. So my apologies there.

Any way below is the link to my speakers notes, and also the examples from my session on Localisation.

On a related note I have uploaded to Flickr a few of the images my little lomo camera captured of the event. You can see them over on my Flickr stream
