With tickets being a veritable steal at £20 it was impossible to turn my nose up at the opportunity to attend the first WordPress event of 2020 in my nearest city. Having to hold on until after payday, I eventually bought what the site told me was the second-to-last ticket available and, when I checked the next day, the event was a sell-out.
I’ve been to a slew of conferences in the past, from several iterations of The Future of Web Design in its heyday to the short-lived jQuery UK and even shorter-lived UX London events, so I knew roughly what to expect of the day.
Back in May 2017, I was approached by Sony about taking part in a retrospective video on WipEout. I happily attended the recording in Liverpool and, in addition, answered a series of questions that were to be part of a feature for the Official PlayStation Magazine.
For whatever reason, the feature was never published so after writing recently about how WipEout changed my life, I thought I’d share the Q&A here.
I became a fan of Yonaka after spending an entire day seeking out female-fronted indie rock bands to listen to. I also had the good fortune to discover Rews, Antares, Lucia and others at the time. But Yonaka really stood out for the quality of the riffs and the delivery of the lyrics and, when I saw they’d be playing in Glasgow, I snapped up the tickets.
