@Media in London

12 Jun 2006

I’m heading to London for a few days to do a session on web applications at the @Media 2006 conference (an excellent event with, I’ve found, an ineffectively googlable title). I’m really looking forward to it; the agenda has an interesting mix of nuts-and-bolts techniques and industry perspective.
