    that it is always worth trying an idea No matter how small or how crazy you never know where it may lead I highly recommend everyone watch this short video about Dominic It is certainly an insight into a truly creative mind https vimeo com 122959827 Tuesday Andrew Spooner Welcome to 2017 Andrew is a Technical Evangelist at Microsoft and along with two colleagues he spoke about all sorts of cool and futuristic technologies I was really excited about this session because as a Windows PC user I always feel like the odd one out in the Apple world of creatives The talk did not disappoint I think the highlight was the stuff about machine learning Andrew s colleague Amy showed us a live demo of software analysing our tweets and reflecting its interpretation of their emotion in a colour changing orb Wow that was hard to explain Basically we could see our tweets showing up on the screen in real time and when we were asked to tweet particularly negative things the orb changed from green to an orangey red Maybe you had to be there But it was pretty awesome Stacey Mulcahy Programming Play Stacey is particularly awesome She works for Microsoft in New York and describes herself as a tinkerer who would rather be making than meeting She spoke about facing creative blocks as a developer getting inspired trying new things and sharing knowledge Stacey already had everyone captivated by her energetic and natural delivery but the barrage of GIFs that was her slideshow really was something special Despite the banter Stacey s talk had true substance and addressed one of the most common complaints of creative employees She urged us not to get bogged down in work that restricts us the endless deadlines and monotony of some client work She reminded us that it s so important to find fun in our work challenge ourselves to try new things and always make time for side projects You never know what your ideas might turn into and how they could be used even if they don t seem relevant right away Ros Horner Get it done Ros is a designer who s worked on Adidas Reebok Volvo and McLaren She is a lovely lady with a major passion for getting things done I so enjoyed hearing about her journey and what s driven her to get where she is today She has now turned her attention to inspiring others with a fascinating side project on life goals Ros spoke at Reasons 2 years ago and collected everyone s goals on bits of paper following up on them and hearing about people s success She shared some of the most interesting and inspiring ones with us and then asked us to share our goals with her too I believe that even the act of writing down a goal can kick start you into gear So having shared my ambitions with Ros I feel like there is a chance

    it a text would be sent to a chosen person telling them you were thinking of them He also had some other awesome ideas so check out his slides here http www slideshare net MartinHollywood reasons to 11 slideshare Hardware projects really seemed to take a front seat at Reasons this year a lot of speakers mentioned them so I am excited to see what the future holds the Internet of Things is taking over the world Chris Gannon How to Animate SVG I expected this talk to be a bit of a lecture and probably quite boring compared to the other more conceptual talks I d seen so far I could not have been more wrong Chris took us through the whole process of animating a small illustration and managed to make it super engaging really easy to follow and a whole lot of fun He used an illustration of a toaster and animated it so the bread would toast and pop up at the end Check it out http codepen io chrisgannon pen NGGKWo Chris uses Greensock an animation library that makes SVG animating pretty painless and has totally convinced me to check it out I am now excited about getting my hands dirty and trying some animations of my own J http slides com chrisgannon reasons http slides com chrisgannon svgwork Danny Yount Title Design I have to admit this was one of the talks I was most looking forward to despite it being pretty far removed from my job role Danny Yount is a title designer who s got a pretty impressive show reel He is responsible for the titles in the Sherlock Holmes movies the Iron Man movies Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Oblivion Tron Legacy and so many more It was a really enjoyable talk and definitely an insight into a less than a conventional journey to the top Final Thoughts If anyone actually reads both parts of this blog post from start to finish I ll be very impressed I didn t realise quite h ow much I had to write about all the talks Having never been to another conference I don t really have anything to compare Reasons to But it s got to be one of the best you could go to As someone who could be described as a jack of all trades master of none it was awesome to see such a diverse range of speakers and topics There really is something for everyone I ve absolutely come away inspired I ve learned so much and I am already trying new things I should also mention that the people at Reasons are the best Going to an event like this on your own can be a bit daunting but also is such a blessing I met so many cool people and had an absolute blast Collaboration conference css growth hardboiled web design html5 HTML5 js mobile first Mobile Technology New Technology responsive design Responsive Design training User Experience UX

    Beyond the Web From the Roadmap session there were three things that caught my eye The first one was Umbraco as a service and how easy it looked to setup within a reasonable budget too Secondly was moving the courier project into the core meaning you did not have to pay for the plugin Finally Umbraco version 8 would use angular 2 and all legacy code would be removed Next was a great session from Heather Floyd who spoke about how to upgrade Umbraco to the latest version Everything she said just made sense regarding upgrading and if upgrading was really the right option Then Janus and Emma from Mayflymedia showed us all a superb solution using Umbraco that was actually a call conferencing solution and NOT a website It used a third party app called Twilio that allowed integration via xml to Umbraco They demonstrated this solution live there and then and it went down a storm On the second day there were another three sessions I was interested in and they were How to develop a killer package Load balancing Securing your Umbraco Two Umbraco MVP S started off by describing how to create a killer package and best practises it was a fun session with Lee Kelleher and Matt Brailsford as they discussed the challenges they had over the years creating Umbraco packages I however was more interested in the load balancing session as I have never had to deploy Umbraco to a load balanced environment before I have researched this and although it can be completed at present in Umbraco it can be very difficult to setup and causes all sorts of headaches not just for the developer involved It was good to know that the auto load balancing feature will be added to version 7 3 which will hopefully ensure that this task is completed smoothly You can view presentation of the superb load balancing talk from Shannon here My Final Umbraco session was delivered by a chap called Chris Gaskell who took us on a journey of web security in Umbraco He covered cross site scripting http headers and loads more about security He pointed us to a nice package to use with IIS to hide our headers and not expose our platform Click here to see this on github For me this session was extremely helpful and gave me some idea which I could use when developing Then it was time for Umbraco Bingo and the Dinner party The chap I was sitting next to said that the bingo was the highlight of the conference I now know why It all went a bit weird to say the least The Umbraco core team came out dressed as mimes at one point there was a bunny running around the room with a chainsaw and a giraffe with a selfie stick but I have to admit it was all highly entertaining I m just glad I never won the bingo as being up on that
