Full Frontal 2010
It was a very inspiring and stimulating day, with a very very nice line of speakers, all coming from different, but yet connected, areas of the Front End Development scene.
Left Logic is run by Remy Sharp, that made an very good job, together with his wife (sorry, I don't recall her name right now), to organise, publicise and sell-out all the tickets, months before the conference. I guess next year the only problem for them will be to try to find a bigger venue: Duke of York's Picturehouse in Brighton was a nice and cosy one, but the absence of decent WiFi connectivity, and the size of the cinema, will probably become a limit as this event gets more and more popular.
I was there with some colleagues from Betfair: Matt, Paul, Caroline, Nick, Terry and Tim. It was good also to do some "team building" - and to taste one of the best Fish & Chips ever at Bardsley's of Baker Street.
I took some notes: hopefully, they are interesting for you to checkout. Sorry if they are confused and messy: it's just the way I had to type to keep up with the speech. And I'm too tired to spend time in rewriting them in a proper way :-P .

I think it has been a very good experience, and definitely a source of inspiration. Indeed, since after the last talk from Seb Lee-Delise, I wanted to add Canvas animated torches with particles of file on the 2 sides of this blog. But maybe I shouldn't... ;)
I guess, see you next year #fullfrontalconf.
