Two weekends ago we had our UK office annual away day. These events let us, as a group, get together and share ideas, reconnect with old faces and establish new ties with new ones. This year, we held our event at Centreparcs Elveden Forest that turned out to be a really nice venue for all of the sessions.

I attended plenty of interesting sessions including Liz Douglass’ session on building Android applications, the new Operating Model of the company presented by Stephen Forshew and a great back to basics but see them fly Refactoring session put on by Pete Gillard Moss.

I also presented alongside my colleagues, Luca and Frankie on the application we built for the iPad competition (something I’ll post about when we get our application live). In the meantime watch this space since we managed to win the competition based on the crucial judgement and critical feedback from our UK based peers.

Like most of these events I came away recharged and drained at the same time.
