DDD North is Coming

I am super happy to announce that DDD North is set to appear on February the 9th in the Sunny Northern City of Hull

The Amazing people at Hull University have arranged the venue and we will be shortly announcing call for sessions and dates for ticket availability.

We had hoped to have DDD this side of Christmas but with such a great opportunity available we felt we could wait a bit

I look forward to seeing a lot of old and new faces at the next DDD

DDD is coming up fast: things you might want to know

DDD is winging its way to Reading in June, We already have some great sessions submitted but it would be great to get even more. If you have something to say we would love to hear it.

Also we are still looking for designer orientated sessions.

If you are a new speaker let us know and we are trying to get some speaker mentoring and presentation training organised before the event to help you shine on the day.

So if you are a new speaker and you are accepted we will contact you to see if you need any assistance.

I look forward to seeing you all in June

DDD is now live for Session Submission!

I am delighted to announce the DDD site is now live for session submissions! Get in early to make sure you don’t forget. Always a great opportunity to get in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

Please do submit, and we would welcome first-timers. The audience is friendly, and so many speakers, that are now on the international circuit got their start at a DDD event. We hope to be able to do something more to support first-time speakers, so let us know if you fall into that category.

Once again DDD is free for all to attend, thanks to some great sponsors – if you would like to be sponsor DDD, please email ddd@blackmarble.com. Every bit of sponsorship helps make this a great event.

o7 is back in Store

Several years ago, for the launch of Windows Phone 7, we built a game based on work we did on helping teaching AI with .NET.

o7 was born.  A great game, and now it is back in glorious UWP for Windows 10.

Try it out and let us know what you think.

Get it here.

Regional Director

 

Once again I am so very proud to announce I have been selected to continue as a Regional Director for Microsoft for another two years.

The Regional Directors are a truly extraordinary set of individuals and I am humbled every time I’m in their company.  Not only for their extraordinary depth of knowledge and level of technical skills, but also for a passion as deep as mine for helping and supporting the community of developers across the world.

DDD is Back for the 12th Time

 

After last year’s successful reboot, DDD is back in Reading for its twelfth outing, on Saturday, 10th of June.

 

Again DDD is free for all to attend, thanks to some great sponsors – and if you would like to be considered, please email ddd@blackmarble.com.

Our aim is to make DDD accessible to all, making it free is key to this but also leaves us limited budget for the nice to haves but we will always try.

I would love to see new speakers and new topics in the DDD line up, so please submit a session.  I’m afraid we can’t cover your costs, but so many great speakers have come out of DDD, many of them prized on the International Developer conference circuit.

 

Session submission has finished and so please vote on which sessions you would like to see @ http://developerdeveloperdeveloper.com/

I look forward to seeing you all in June and we will be announcing more DDD dates at the event
