In London next Saturday? Come to PubConf!

PubConfNext Saturday January 16th, some of the best speakers in the IT industry – and me – will be appearing at PubConf, a single-track, rapid-fire conference. A series of five-minute Ignite-style talks, curated around three themes that we hope are relevant and familiar to anybody who does “computering” – managing yourself; the future of computering, and ranting about broken things.

I’ll be talking about “The Face Of Things To Come” on the computering track – all about recent advances in computer vision, face detection and recognition, emotion analysis, and how I think this kind of technology is going to change the world. For real, this time.

It promises to be a really great event – and it’s completely absolutely free. Yep, free-as-in-beer free. Read more about it at, and get your tickets at EventBrite.
