So recently I got the opportunity to attend a conference in the UK. FullFrontal is a fantastic conference for front-end developers, but honestly I'd recommend it to anyone who's at least kind of interested in technology. It's a fantastic day of talks that range from inspiring to insightful to straight-up entertaining.
The conference itself was only one day, but it was cheapest for me to be in the UK for a week. How I persuaded my wife to allow this is something I will never understand. I know sure as all get out that it won't happen a second time.
I was excited by the prospect of visiting the UK since I lived there for years. I expected it to be a whirlwind tour of friends and places, food and drink, and good feelings all around. And it was! I got to see friends, eat foods, and also suffer one of the worst hangovers I've had in years. What I didn't have was the good feelings.
