Well I have been home for a few days now after Codemash, and I must say it was a good conference. Because it is platform and technology agnostic, the content tends to be a bit thin in certain areas, such as my area of expertise, iOS development. I went to as many iOS presentations as I could, and then filled in the rest of the schedule with a smattering of soft skills talks and presentations on Microsoft technologies.
For me, the highlights were Ravi Desai’s presentation on Swift, and Chris Risner’s push notification presentation. Both of these had lots of good information that I can use at work and in my own projects that I like to putter around with.
BTW, a posthumous Happy Birthday to Captain Beefheart, an underrated performer by anyone’s measure.
