Sometimes it's good to talk. And share. Which is exactly what a few of us here at Deeson Online decided to do - and record it as a podcast.

In it, User Experience Designer Graeme Blackwood and Solutions Architect John Ennew discuss the value of User Experience in web design, Node.JS as a proxy for server... and crayons.

So have a listen (it's only 18 mins) and let us know what you think as a comment below!

April Digibury once again proved just how awesome our community is. Just before we were about to kick off, one of our speakers had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.

So in true Digibury style, we turned the spotlight on the audience. But who could possibly step in at such a late hour?

Only Microsoft and Kent County Council. Yes. You read that right.


The great Digibury debate

As part of March Digibury, we tried something a little bit different. Following the reveal of Project Conway, we held an art-meets-tech debate with members of the art and creative world exploring the impact technology has on art.

Digibury art-meets-tech special: Project Conway presentation

Here it is. Project Conway's reveal at March Digibury in all it's (35 mins and 7 seconds) glory.

The video details the software and hardware build... and suggests that art and tech can collaborate to create something rather interesting. Enjoy!

Running from Friday February 28 to Sunday March 2, DrupalCamp London was the second largest DrupalCamp ever seen in Europe: Attended by over 600 people, it included a CxO day, over 30 sessions and Bofs, and high-caliber keynotes from organisations ranging from Cancer Research and Government Digital Service to Drupal Association and Acquia.

While at DrupalCamp London, we caught up with Drupal Association Associate Director, Megan Sanicki, for a quick video interview.

Megan highlighted key elements from her keynote speech including how:

Eric Gaffen, Global Manager, Talent Acquisition at Acquia, spoke to Deeson Online to explain why nurturing great Drupal talent is important for the whole of the Drupal ecosytem.
He also highlighted how Acquia are collaborating with higher education institutions to bring Drupal into the curriculum.

The past couple of months, we've been working closely with the School of Computing at the University of Kent and TinkerSoc in the development of Project Conway: an innovative interactive computer game and art installation.
What's the big idea?
While at DrupalCamp London, we caught up with James Dodd, Technical Lead for Drupal at Cancer Research UK.
In this short video, James outlines why events such as DrupalCamp London and the support of the wider Drupal community are so valuable for Cancer Research UK's crucial mission.

DrupalCamp London is nearly upon us! It kicks off on Friday February 28 and runs until Sunday March 2.

We'll be attending in force - with Deeson Online running sessions and BoF's, as well as being one of the proud organisers and sponsors.
