This year, I attended the reasons.to conference in Brighton, UK.
Talks covered both creative inspirational and technical subjects, as well as philosophical issues. Technical talks covered topics such as machine learning (Christian Heilmann), website performance (Harry Roberts), SVG animations (Chris Gannon) and augmented / virtual reality (Carlos Ulloa).
For software developers, reasons.to explored the creative and artistic approach to programming. This can take many forms, such as generic data/sound visualizations (Frederik Vanhoutte), virtual worlds created with cutting edge VR technology (Carlos Ulloa), robotics used in fashion (Anouk Wipprecht), and many more.
reasons.to offered a refreshing look on our everyday work with a clear message: follow your project ideas and allow yourself to be creative.
