Really, truely, soon. Before it is no longer fresh in my memory and the normal doldrums of child care erases it from my mind. The basic gist – Stupendous!

First I have a few photos on Flickr and I’ll be adding more when I have some time to finish tagging them.

A number of other people have posted some as well StuFF mc’s, ax25, alexrepty, aallan and marius.pacha

Marius managed to get this photo of me in my absolute favourite shirt that I bought in Tesco a few years ago. Kicking myself that I never got a second one 🙂

[NSConference conferenceFor:@”Mac Developers”];

Category: Development,Personal,SiteRobert McGovern @ 9:43 pm

For once, thanks to the hard work of Steve “Scotty” Scott & Tim Isted, there is going to be a Mac developers conference in the UK.

Its open to anyone but aimed for UK & European developers that can’t really make the yearly (and rather expensive) WWDC trip. It’s a 2 day conference (3 if you want to attend a workshop) aimed at intermediate to advanced developers, with a number of “names” in the Mac development world doing presentations. For instance:

Bill Dudney (author of Core Animation and co-author of the upcoming iPhone SDK Development book) is do a workshop on “iPhone Development” and a talk on “Building Applications with Core Animation”

Marcus Zarra (author of the coming Core Data book from Pragmatic Programmers & also co-author of a coming Core Animation book), is doing a workshop on “Core Data” and a talked on “Spotlight and QuickLook vs. Core Data”

Mike Lee (founder of United Lemur, co-founder Tapulous, former intern of Wil Shipley at Delicious Monster) is doing a workshop on “User Interfaces” and a talk called “Pimp My App”.

Other speakers are Matt Gemmell, Graham Lee, Drew McCormack, Philippe Mougin, Andre Pang, Fraser Speirs and ???? (1 talk has yet to be announced).
