284/365 – Exciting line up at Myaware conference

Next month, people from all over the UK and Ireland will travel to Birmingham for the annual Myaware conference for people under 40. 

I wasn’t sure that I was going to attend as every weekend up until Christmas has something on for me at the moment and, just looking at the schedule, I feel like I need a break. However, the lovely community, Myaware’s Sarah and the interesting line up have convinced me to attend on the Saturday.
