Watch half an hour of highlights, interviews, projects and best bits of DevXS 2011.
Read a full report from the DevCSI project on the success of DevXS. Thanks again to everyone that made it such a brilliant weekend.
DevCSI recently collaborated with the University of Lincoln’s Student as Producer project to host the extremely successful DevXS student hackathon, which took place from Friday 11th – Sunday 13th November at the aptly named Engine Shed at the University of Lincoln.
Alex Dutton from the University of Oxford has blogged about his time at DevXS and includes slides from his Lightning Talk. Thanks, Alex!
While there I knocked together a lightning talk about how easy it is to build stuff that interfaces with the physical world, based on my very positive experience with JeeNodes. The slides are available as a PDF.
Here’s a quick overview of who came to DevXS and the winners of the Competitions. We’ll pull this together in a better/prettier way soon.
