/dev/world/2014

/dev/world/2014One of my favourite conferences ever, /dev/world/2014, is running for the 7th time this year. Once again it’s in Melbourne, and once again I’m speaking!

Secret Lab would not exist without the support we received through attending past AUC events, such as /dev/world. I could not recommend it more highly for those in the iOS or Mac development community, or interested in iOS or Mac development.

Check it out at http://www.devworld.com.au – tickets are available now!

OSCON 2013

OSCON 2013I’m very pleased to be presenting at O’Reilly’s OSCON conference in Portland once again this year. I’ll be presenting two tutorials this time around.

For the third year in a row Chris Neugebauer, Jon Manning, and I will be presenting a half-day tutorial on mobile application development with a focus on user-experience. As with the last two years, we’ll be using Android as the platform we discuss the most – but everything will be applicable to all mobile platforms. The tutorial is called Level Up Your Apps: Mobile UX Design and Development.

Additionally, and for the first time, Jon Manning and I will be presenting a half-day tutorial on game design where we’ll discuss what makes games fun, how they work, and how you can apply game design techniques to your daily non-game related work. This tutorial is hands-on, very practical, lots of fun, and is called How Do I Game Design?

Adventures this month

This month, I’ve been travelling!

Early in the month I flew from Australia to San Francisco, via Hong Kong (on Cathay Pacific). I’ve been in San Francisco for the GDC (more on that in an upcoming post), and will be here until March 19th. I fly to New Orleans then, to participate in IASummit 2012 (more on that soon, too). Then, on March 25th I fly to Hong Kong for a week.

If you’re in San Francisco, New Orleans, or Hong Kong and want to catch up, please let me know!
