OTN APAC 2014 : Perth – Day 2

*+-Day 2 started at 03:30 local time, so I got about 5-5.5 hours sleep. After doing a bit of work on the computer I went for a swim at the beach. I would like to say I was very brave and marched in, but I got to waist level and gave up. It wasn’t so […]

OTN APAC 2014 : Perth – Day 1

I met a bunch of familiar faces and many new ones. The best speaker prize went to Connor McDonald. If you get the chance, […]

Family and Friends post: Day 1 in Perth…

*+-Hello family and friends… The flight to perth took a little longer than the planned 7 hours and 45 minutes. The last 2 hours were really tough. The lack of sleep meant I was really irritable. Everything was aggrivating my skin and my legs felt really stiff and bloated. I got into the hotel at […]
