Upcoming speaking engagements

After the dust has settled from a crazy few weeks putting PixelPyros together (more on that soon) I thought it’d be good to mention the conferences I’ll be speaking at over the next few weeks.

dConstruct, Brighton UK

Sept 7 2012
I’m really excited to be speaking at dConstruct, and most proud that I’m only the second native Brightonian to be invited there! (The first was Aral Balkan a few years ago). The conference looks at the intersection between culture and technology, and this year’s topic is “Playing with the Future”. Which is a great fit for me considering the playful nature of my work.

I’ll be talking about PixelPyros, PixelPhones, and bringing back the glowsticks for some audience controlled fun. And, at Jeremy’s request, I’ll be talking about the “why” rather than just the “how”.

onGameStart, Poland

Sept 19-21 2012
HTML5 is rapidly becoming a viable gaming platform, so it’s nice to see one or two conferences popping up that cover this subject. I’ll be talking about some of the techniques that you can use to make simple games, and hopefully demystify some areas that seem complicated. Expect some live coding of course!

LXJS, Lisbon, Portugal

Sept 28-29 2012
I hear that Lisbon is beautiful and this is a really friendly and well run conference. I’m looking forward to coming to do more live coding, and making some JavaScript fireworks.

CodeKen, London

Nov 6-7 2012
CodeKen is a conference all about the joy of coding, and I’m delighted that I’ll be giving the opening keynote presentation. It’ll be the first outing for PixelPhones in a while, and I’ll look at some of the technology behind it. And of course getting it up and running with the audience.

I have 2 other important art commissions and a couple of CreativeJS workshops so it’s going to be a busy month or two!
