Tonight was the night for a code4pizza meeting in Belfast. Now I’m fairly settled with the idea that I’m in the minority when it comes to location. So Matt and I tried Skype video from my house to Core Belfast.The ProsWell I was certainly there and I could say hello to folk. I got the majority of the conversations which is the main point of the night. I didn’t have to stay there all night, I could break off into a group of one if I wanted to but it wouldn’t have been much fun.
The ConsLaptop microphones are the main issue as they are designed for one to one conversations and not a public forum. I kept a chat window open just in case I needed to type something. Luckily the good folk in Belfast gave me space to speak when I needed to.The only other real drag was that I couldn’t have pizza. I’ll have to go back to the drawing board on that one.
