Localization World Dublin 2014

Proud to say that Localization World came to my home city, Dublin, in June 2014. And boy, what an event. I am told that there were 650 attendees. That makes it the biggest Localization World event yet.

Dublin’s a great place to visit, as well as to stage events in, so let’s see more industry events coming soon.

The Stavros S Niarchos came to Dublin's River Liffey in June, 2014. So did Localization World at the Dublin Convention Centre (in the background).

The online conference program reveals the richness of content and diversity of speakers. I flew in and presented too, explaining how developers can make great UIs for enterprise apps by following some simple visual design rules. So, there is no need to go to art school for four years. A copy of my presentation is on SlideShare (yes, it’s non-downloadable. To download, well, you’ll just have to sign up for the conference in future, yeah?).

At least one of these people hasn't aged a day in 20 years, while the other is now channeling an inner Keith Richards. Or something.

In all, a great event. Watch out for more coverage in a forthcoming issue of MultiLingual magazine and check out the great pictures on Facebook.

Smart of the organizers to get #LocWorld clear of Dublin before real waffling started, too. Who needs PowerPoint?
