I’m reviewing some of the keynotes and feeling inspired by the amazing lineup of speakers which were complemented with a splattering of soul touching music.
For shear stage presence I’d give the award to Steve Blame. He appeared 3 times a day to promote a band. Letting some music intersperse and add some perspective to the depth of technical and digital trends that were being talked about. He walked onto the stage in a relaxed and calm manner, giving entertaining anecdotes while the acts setup their instruments. If you want to see how you to introduce a band then look no further.
The Next Conference’s tag line is “Celebrating Digital Life” It’s the perfect stepping stone for developers who want to take a step back and view things from a different perspective. There are no coding sessions. Instead it’s a view of how technology trends are affecting the world. We’re talking big picture. It helps put things in context.
Here’s my take on their talks:
I hope to see you at next year at NEXT17
