Scotch on the Rocks 2010, Day 1 part 2

A whistlestop tour of HTML5 and CSS3

Chris Mills (Opera)
I should have bumped into the speaker before now really, as he's from Manchester, but we'd never managed it :-)

Scotch on the Rocks 2010, Day 1 part 1

This years Scotch on the Rocks was based in central London, a conveniently small walk from Trafalgar Square itself.
The venue was a perfectly well layed out Tiger Tiger, with large rooms for the talks and funky mezzanine chill out reception area.

The offical Novell client packages are still a nightmare to install and configure, and don't actually authenticate me for some reason anyway.

Weekend's pictures

There are a few snaps from this weekend here.

Tim D arrived Friday and was fed more than enough from the local Chinese, together with two bottles of wine between the three of us before we walked it off back to ours.
