So dConstruct 2007 proved a good Friday day (and night) by the sea. User experience was the order of the day with no code (as far as I can remember) on display at all. It was a happy absence IMO - I find it easier to take in more conceptual talk than coding practices at conferences
Interesting things I need to investigate that I picked up from presentations and pub chats:
- FreeAgent Central - worth investigating for freelance income tracking etc. (thanks Roan).
- The relationship between UCD and Agile
Plus countless other tidbits of inspiration and book list ideas.

Was good to meet Denise after although I’d had a drink or three so I’m not sure I made sense - save for spouting about how much I appreciated B3ta.
Ah, just found a great summary of proceedings - these look like the notes I should have taken:
