Rob at Future Decoded

That's me on the Red Stage. I wonder how it got it's name? Thanks to Edward for the picture. You've not given me permission actually, but you put the shot on the internets and so I reckon it's fair game. And anyway, I think I may have taught you to program a while back and I so I reckon we are probably quits. 

Anyhoo, today saw me up bright and early and heading off to London for Future Decoded. I was giving a "Grok Session", in fact one of the very last ones of the day. I was a bit worried that nobody would come - after all

One thing that amazed me was the number of people who came up to me and told me that I taught them to program many years ago. Fantastic to see them doing well. And quite a few came to my talk, which was lovely.

I was talking about Snaps, my little framework that is designed to help people learn how to program, but turns out to be a neat place to create simple applications. The audience was great, much fun was had and I managed to get to Kings Cross to catch my train back in good time. Thanks to Lee for inviting me.  I took some pictures, as you do...
