Since apparently the description from my JSConf.EU talk was quite enticing, I’ve been asked to re-run the same session –or something equally fancy/funny– at Barcelona’s DevFest next Friday, 11th of October. I can’t go and do the very exact same thing, so I decided to add new and improved stuff and do the talk in Spanish AND screencast it so people who don’t speak English have a chance to get inspired/mad by my crazy ideas.
The talk is at 12:05 in the “Auditorio Vertex”.
I will also be running a hybrid between workshop and talk on Firefox OS with Brick, where I’ll demonstrate some of the new and very awesome features in Developer Tools / Simulator for Firefox OS. If you were in the Mozilla Summit you know what I’m speaking about ;-)
The workshop is at 15h at the VXS208* room.
This has been somehow quickly planned so sorry about not warning about it earlier!
*Also, I can’t stop reading VXS208 as “Visual XStudio 2008″
The Google Developer’s Group DevFest Barcelona 2012 (or GDG DevFest BCN for short) edition was held past Friday the 9th of November.
I didn’t take as many notes this year, instead I turned to drawing a few speakers and live-tweeting the others (with pics, because otherwise it didn’t happen).
Everything’s so hectic these days, that I forgot to post the link to my sketchbook here O:-)
Hope you like the drawings!
We went hiking in Barcelona today. Hiking in a city, you ask? Well, not exactly in the city center, but well above its surrounding mountains instead–Collserola. Or at least as high as we could reach!
Once we’ve had lunch with these awesome views at our feet, we kept walking and climbing steps and steps until we reached Vallvidrera (a nice neighbourhood with pretty houses), and then we started to descend, past the now dried and empty swarm of Vallvidrera, and also past the FGC railway station and up, and we arrived to Vil·la Joana, the last residence of Jacint Verdaguer, a famous Catalan poet (which also happens to give its name to the Verdaguer square and metro stop in Barcelona, just in case you wondered).
I happened to notice an old-looking plaque on the floor in front of the house:
I had the opportunity of visiting the Mobile World Congress this morning. This was my first time there, so I didn’t know what to expect!
