It means a lot for me to be back in Brighton again, not only because of making a new record: yes, I made all 7 editions!
But because it is a wonderful time to gather with friends from all over the world. And also to benefit of the so inspiring energy of this creative community.

This year, beside the inspirational/arty talks, my planning will focus on data-visualization, games and cross-platform development. I am also very curious about the talk of my friends David Lenaert and Frank Reitberger who are presenting for the first time in Brighton (I think).
