Bristol IT Megameet

The Frenchay campus of Bristol UWE was the location and the graffiti in the toilets did not disappoint. Elements of the Megameet did though but that's alright because the organisers are honest about it's fledgling nature and keen to improve. Many of the presenters were first or second-time speakers so there were some awkward audiences watching embarrassed presenters hurriedly attempt to fix broken demos. However in contrast I enjoyed a slick talk by local developer, Frank West who convered my area of expertise, front-end development.

One confusing aspect of the Megameet was the unnecessarily long (or maybe just unnecessary) award ceremony that took place at the end of the day. Drop that, help the presenters tighten up their talks and the event will be fantastic. I will attend next year, I may even volunteer to help.
