Last Wednesday's dotBrighton featured Jaime Dominguez and Robert Silverton. Very informative, very interesting. Jaime showed what you can do with AIR in the right hands. More than I certainly realised. I think Rob's "Cadet Engine" stole the show though. His entire presentation about Cadet Engine can be read from his blog:

Epic work +Bernhard Pichler! :-)
 
It started about a year ago and it was so much fun working with Googles new programming language Dart and to collaborate with the awesome Dart team. Later Adobe joined and now we finally can talk about this amazing announcement. 

Special thanks to +Philippe Elsass +Seth Ladd +Kasper Lund  and the whole team at Google and Adobe who helped building this great platform.
At Google I/O today, Adobe announced their new Toolkit for Dart, a plugin for Flash Professional CC that allows developers to export their animations and games to Dart code and HTML5. "Adobe is delighted to announce the Too...

Lady Ada Lovelace, born nearly two centuries ago on December 10, 1815, is considered by some to be the world’s first computer programmer. In 1843, she published the first algorithm intended for use on Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine. Nearly a century before the first computers were built, Ada envisaged a day when a single machine would be capable of a myriad of tasks, limited only by the creativity of its programmer.

Today we're celebrating Ada's prophetic vision for computing with a doodle on homepages worldwide. We hope today's doodle inspires people to find out more about Ada, and about the contributions made by women in general to science and technology. Read more: http://goo.gl/zL9Ar

Don't want to be a hater, but what is up with this new Google+ design... It swims between 3 layout modes as I scroll my profile page and has cover photos that are so ridiculously huge they fill my entire laptop screen. It feels confusing and awkward, like it's fighting with itself just to provide minimum functionality. #overcomplicated

It just looks like they've put Facebook's two column timeline layout in a horizontal vice to me, then put a huuuge weight on top of it (in the form of a cover picture that fills my entire screen). It's trying to be different while also trying to be exactly the same.

I learned to drive with Paul at Brighton Driving Lessons and couldn't have been happier with the experience. Paul is very calm, likeable and has a rigorous eye for detail, always pointing out potential hazards and equipping you with the tools you need to be a safe driver. It felt like there was a clear structural progression between lessons at all times, gradually increasing the difficulty as I gained skills. At no point did I feel out of my depth or as if we'd been thrown into a situation that I was unprepared for. That said, I didn't feel bogged down in detail in any way either or as if an overly systematic approach was delaying my progress. In short, it always felt like I was playing a well structured computer game: at all times easy enough to be fun and difficult enough to be challenging. By the time I took the test I felt so confident and relaxed that I managed to pass with 1 minor. Great stuff guys, keep up the good work! 10/10
