BarCamp London X

Had a wonderful time at BarCamp London X. "A free-to-attend weekend unconference for designers, developers and geeks of all types at Microsoft's offices in Victoria, London."

I learnt about Scala, puppies, search engines, the future, sequencing your genes, the Novikov self-consistency principle, augmented reality, quantum physics, passwords, philosophy of AI, writing on the road, UI archeology, art and mathematics, synthesizers, Haskell, how to design things to make sense, and probably other things too! I also played a card game about being a band on tour, and spoke to many interesting people, and ended up wearing a pirate hat and an inflatable parrot on my shoulder and didn't want to go home.

10 things I learned from my puppy
Anatomy of a search engine
FutureLearn and the web we want
Personal genetics
How do Haskell
