Cameron Reilly was humble enough to start off the day with a short whistle accompanied with a welcome for everyone in the room (approx 30) in encouragement to "come on down" and help him as an audience. We all complied
Starting off the day we had quite a moral teaching. Cameron’s view was that we as geeks in australia, and around the world, are so privileged today with the opportunities we have. We have a platform to change the world right in front of us that right now is just used in waste compared to what we can do. Instead of coming together to talk about the latest facebook or mac applications/hardware/etc we could be speaking about how we could changed things to help out the world.
We were given a vision to start off our day about how us as people who have skills to talk to the world should look and see what us as well paid white collar workers are doing compared to someone in our past, approximately 1000 years ago. Cameron is a man whom cares about the future well being of the world.
Akash gave a great presentation on how he thinks that Adobe Air is going to be an extension of the browser. He started out by saying that the current website browsers are flawed by the fact that they are constricted by the fact that they are a browser. He then explained that Adobe Air is a program that uses website technology to easily create website applications that run on your desktop.
Akash then went on to explain how to make these applications, the usefulness of these applications, what this means for the future of web development, etc.
Spoken by Dan this pretty much explained everything you needed to know about WCF if you were ever interested to start learning it.
