Decided that I will give it a go after all. It's a day where "hacks" (journalists and such like) get together with "hackers" (web developers and designers) to make interesting stuff. I know I spend most of my free time training but I know there's a lot of other things going on in Leeds. Got to admit I'm a little jealous of some of the things [livejournal.com profile] nalsa does as well and I'd like to try something similar for myself. The nature of the techy work I do means the kind of projects I work on tend to be pretty functional but they are designed to be robust and with the right kind of back end it's relatively straightforward to put a pretty user interface on it. Now I've got to come up with a few ideas for the kind of stuff we could do there. Because I use public transport a lot and sometimes grumble at First Group and Metro on Twitter that could be one starting point. An idea I've kind of been playing with is a "find me" web application that gets your postcode from a mobile phone's GPS coordinates and then passes it on to information services such as the Metro next bus system. As well as trying something different it'll also be good to meet a different group of people. Somehow I have a feeling that once the day comes to an end we'll be decamping to the pub across the road......
