I’m speaking at SkillSwap Bristol

Article illustration for I'm speaking at SkillSwap Bristol

SkillSwap Bristol is relaunching with a new venue and format, and they’ve invited me along to speak at the event, which will be on Tuesday 25th September. At time of writing, that’s just over a week away.

I’ll be joined by the mighty Andy Budd (he of Clearleft / dConstruct / CSS Mastery fame) and some other as-yet-unconfirmed speakers. If you check out the site, you’ll see the idea is to “have 3 or 4 speakers who will pose a Talking Point taking about 5 minutes, then everyone will get the chance to discuss for about half an hour. Every half hour we’ll have a new Talking Point. The idea is for you to talk to as many different people as possible over the course of the evening.” It sounds like lots of fun, so if you can get to Bristol, please come and join us!

    Hi – Thanks for the talk and the discussion afterwards. Was an interesting take on pushing people to upgrade their browsers, kinda like how some flash will push you to an upgrade download if you don’t have the latest version.

    Thanks for the comment, Dan! I’m glad you enjoyed the talk. I had a great night and thought all 3 discussions (each slightly controversial in their own way) got some great responses. I’d like to do another one in the future.
