Barcamp Manchester, held yesterday at the MEN Media HQ, was great and made it clear to me once again that there’s a great web community up here in the North. A very exciting place to be at the moment, and I’m convinced things here will only get better. Barcamps are always an opportunity to meet new people, catch up with existing friends, and recharge your mind with some fresh ideas; this one was no exception. Interesting talks on Microformats, accessibility, PR, interactive narratives, developing for teenagers and NorthCrew.
- Good turn out for the first BarCamp Manchester. Looking forward to the day ahead. #
- Great talk from Dan Morris on the BBC’s work with teens. Waiting nervously for my slot on WordPress now. #
- BarCamp Manchester has decamped to the bar to disintegrate. Well done to Paul Robinson for pulling and holding the day together. #
