I was very lucky and got to do many interesting things over the year.
I started off the year with a return to London Lean Kanban Day, again I learnt loads, good to spend time thinking about Agile but as always the more thought provoking talks were the more left field ones.
More seriously, I was very happy to be able to contribute in a small way to works Nepal earthquake response. That day was one of the most rewarding of my professional career to date.

June saw me back into Agile mode, with a day out at Agile in a Bag. I came away with lots to think about applying to the day job.
After a nice summer trip to the south of France, I took the train back to the west country and Eden Project to help run a DigiGirlz event. I do like being able to give back, hearing that some of girls have changed their mind about a career in software made it all worthwhile. As soon as the day was over it was back on a Train for The Lead Developer early the next day.
October saw me giving a talk at Oxford University on ‘Working Fast at Internet Scale‘ and heading back to Bristol for the first Bristech Conference. So good to catch up with lots of local folks and hear about the cool things happening in Bristol and Bath.
November was a return to Oxford helping out a career fair. It was a long day but rewarding
