When we launched WXG in 2012, we had that kind of nervous excitement which comes with a new endeavour. In 2013 we did it again and it felt great, but we weren’t sure if it was for keeps.
2014 was different. We announced earlier, we got the speaker line up confirmed sooner, we Tweeted more and theblueballroom interviewed the speakers to add an extra dimension.
It’s only four weeks to go until WXG — our annual one day web development & design conference (September 26, G Live, Guildford).
Kyan attended the inaugural Brighton Ruby conference on Monday 21st July 2014. We thought it was a great success. Here is the second part of our report from the day.

A bold statement we thought.
Written in Objective-C, it’s one of the most popular and mature libraries for working with Core Data.
