It was a pleasure to host the first Creative Tech Hub meetup of 2014 over at Microsoft’s offices in Victoria. We had 3 amazing guest speakers, Andrew Spooner (Developer Evangelist at Microsoft), Seb Lee-Delisle (Digital Artist) and Ben Griffin (Zen coder dude).
A great night was had by all, partly down to the generous hospitality and hard graft from the guys at Microsoft and mostly the eclectic speakers and topics covered.
I also presented a few slides on some interesting gadgets, tech and innovation. If you’re interesred, my host slides can be downloaded on [this link].
