Bluetooth is everywhere nowadays, you can find it in door locks, heart rate monitors and even in forks. However, this usually means that we also have an app for each device taking up space on our phones, no matter how infrequently we use it. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just use the web?
Coding is serious business. Except it isn't. Code gives us the power to unleash our creative potential in new and interesting ways, whether that’s making interactive art, creating live music and visualisations, building games or even adding joyful flourishes on a web app.
In this talk, I’ll show that our code doesn’t just have to be for building boring applications. Using real examples, I’ll talk about some ways that we can bring creativity into our coding projects, as well as ways for us to share our knowledge and why it’s important that we do. By the end, I hope to have inspired you to bring creativity into your projects and given you the enthusiasm to share your knowledge.
Depression f**king sucks. Those of us that struggle with it know that while we can try and hide it, it's always there waiting to drain our motivation, mess with our appetite and impact our mood for significant amounts of time.
In this talk I will discuss the different ways that depression manifests itself, the ways that some people cope and the impact it has on people's lives.
By the end, I hope to have given you an understanding what some of the people in your life may be dealing with, ways that you can support them and, if you struggle with it yourself, the knowledge that you're not alone and some new ideas to help you deal with it.
