The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2017 – Special Event Update



The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2017 took place on 5th June in San Jose, California, and boy was it exciting. The presentation started off with a really cool advert about a new employee being asked to sit in the server room due to lack of space in the old office who accidentally shuts down the Apple servers. We can then see the consequences of people not being able to use their apps – scenes of car crashes (no google maps) and people handing out “selfies” on paper (no Instagram).

PechaKucha 20 x 20 as part of Tate Modern Late Night, London



Last Friday I went to Tate Modern for one of their late night events. This time it was PechaKucha 20×20 and the theme was around Common Space. The format of these informal gatherings is quite interesting – the speakers have 20 slides (no more and no less) and each slide is shown for 20seconds, which gives a total of 6 minutes 40 seconds to present.

Intro to Wireframing & Prototyping at the Campus



The Intro to Wireframing & Prototyping was a really good, free class organised by General Assembly at the Google Campus in London. The speaker, Amit Patel, was engaging, inspiring, well-paced and well aware of all the wireframing and prototyping trends out there. My only regret is that the talk wasn’t longer 😉

Amit is a Freelance Product Manager / Designer and has worked on projects like Magaza, Grupo, Adio,, Trapped Magazine and Dixie Hollywood Hotel. He also runs workshops with a wide range of companies that want to upskill their employees and also add design thinking into their current ways of working. If you’d like to learn more about UX, Amit instructs User Experience design courses at General Assembly in London. Continue reading “Intro to Wireframing & Prototyping at the Campus”

IoT Tech Expo 2017


IoT Tech expo is definitely the most techy show I’ve ever been to. I usually stick to design/development conferences, because that’s mainly what I do, but when I saw the event invitation on (I think it was) Twitter, I jumped at the chance to broaden my IoT knowledge. The conference spanned over two days and was located at Olympia, London. Thankfully, the talks I was most interested in were accessible for free. There were so many to choose from that if you’re not interested in specific sectors, going with the free pass is more than enough. I decided to stick with the “Developing for the IoT” and “IoT Innovations & Technologies” talks, as they’re nearest to my profession. Continue reading “IoT Tech Expo 2017”
