Last night’s London Java Meetup was good fun.
I didn’t personally get involved in talking about Java, but I overheard enough buzzwords to be happy that it was actually being talked about.
In fact, at one point a few of us got our cameras out and it was more like a Flickr Meetup.
Simon had asked me to bring my camera along and to chat to Tulna about her new Nikon D70s, and then Jez asked me to take some photos for the meetup site – and who was I to refuse! 🙂
I’d been sensible enough to take my 50mm lens, figuring light levels would be low.
It was hard work with such low light levels but I managed a few half-decent shots at ISO 1600.
I think I managed to convert a few people to the way of the 50mm too.
I also asked people along to the next Flickr meetup too.
Then I had a good chat with Jez about backup strategies and other geeky things – which brought me around to the idea of buying an external USB drive for backing up my photos and music.
Lastly, as a place to store the photos I created a Flickr group for that and future meetups.
