As November rolls around, excitement grows amongst UK based front end developers. 2013 is the 5th outing of Full Frontal Conf where we all descend on Brighton for a day of talks on subjects that Remy Sharp wants to hear about (is there any other way to curate a conference?). This was my second visit to Full Frontal, after my 2012 experience made it an unmissable addition to my calendar.
We love a hack competition at Mint. We love them so much, we have our own yearly hack week every February and we even turned that into a way of working with clients. So naturally, when we get the chance to work alongside and compete with other hackers, we jump at it. Last weekend was the London leg of PayPal’s global hack competition Battle Hack and Adam, Noam and myself were in attendance.
A little over two weeks ago, Mint and Channel 4 launched Adoption Experience, a new experience-based site along the lines of Sexperience, launched last year. Adoption Experience seeks to take the same path and educate people through the real-life experiences of others, taking stories and opinions from all facets of the adoption process; adopters, adoptees, birth parents and professionals.
