Hey everyone, something quite cool happened yesterday. I have been away from Trinidad and Tobago for the last five years O_o, so while I have to catch up a lot on the tech scene here I have also had the experience of participating in thriving tech communities. I am going to shamelessly promote Edinburgh (where I did undergraduate studies) with this lovely video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BQ8wYrotZY
The topics this time around were the recent hack.summit() event which was nothing but awesome, Angular.js 2.0's lack of backwards compatibility, the development of Crowdcast.io and how we can emulate its patient evolutionary approach to product development, recent Firefox updates and a couple other things. There was a real openness and interactivity which made it pleasurable and much more than an announcement. And without the big companies, startups looking for developers and well-funded academic departments that I have been pampered with at Edinburgh, I still found myself learning new things and engaging about software development. Something about great minds and pizza makes a super combination.
