Building the dConstruct 2015 site

24th August 2015

I remember when I first saw Paddy’s illustration for this year’s dConstruct site, I thought “Well, that’s a design direction, but there’s no way that Graham will be able to implement all of it.” There was a tight deadline for getting the site out, and let’s face it, there was so much going on in the design that we’d just have to prioritise.

Win dConstruct tickets!

7th August 2015

You might have seen the jolly, space-tastic sponsors that we added to the dConstruct site - we had a hoot thinking up ideas for those. We thought it would be fun to know what ideas other folk would have for them… and lo, a competition was born!

Retro-ing the retrospective

4th August 2015

Hey, here’s a question for you. What’s the most important part of a project? If you ask a team, the chances are that you’ll get a whole heap of different responses; planning, kick-off, workshops, playback/demo etc. The list would probably be long and so would the debate. For my money, the retrospective offers the best opportunity to get real insight from a team into how they feel about a project.

Podcasting the future

3rd August 2015

I’m very proud of the three dConstructs I put together: 2012, 2013, and 2014, but I don’t have the fortitude to do it indefinitely so I’m stepping back from the organisational duties this year. So dConstruct 2015 is in Andy’s hands.
