Tomorrow I will be getting up at silly o’clock to drive to Cambridge, park, walk 2 miles to the station, train to Kings Cross, tube to Victoria and a walk to Microsofts UK HQ. It’ll take about 3.5 hours, but, based on the reports from last year, worth every minute.
This will be my first year attending UKGovCamp (read more about UKGovCamp here), and also my first “unconference“. From the pre-event chatter on Twitter (#ukgc12), Facebook/ukgovcamp and the official site there are going to be some excellent sessions covering a huge range of topics related to digital / IT in the Public Sector.
If this sounds interesting you can “listen in” on the day and after on the UKGovCamp12 Buzz page, including a livestream and liveblog of the first session. I’ll also be posting a followup after the event, and possible during as well.
On a related note I just picked up a pair of Goldring NS1000 active noise cancelling headphones and I’m looking forward to giving them their first real test on the journey to and from London.
