I expected to return from FOWA 2007 with my head overloaded by the brain candy I’d undoubtedly be consuming during the presentations and workshops, but in reality it was a little bit different than I had anticipated. While most of the presentations were undeniably slick, the content was a little too general for it to be of much practical use when I’m back at my desk. Fortunately, being immersed in such a rich environment for picking up the pulse of the web development community at large was an energizing experience in itself.
I’ve been flat out at work this past week, being handed six weeks worth of assets for the web project I’m on in the space of three days. With two of those days falling after the deadline I’d set for the assets, it was pretty much an insurmountable task to try and get the site completed by my own target date of Friday the 21st. I worked so hard that this week was just a total blur, but in the end I couldn’t quite get it done.
