About Ourduino, and me.

Ourduino: sharing our Arduino experiences and projects from Coventry Schools, Birmingham Hack Space and my ‘lab’.

I’m a Software Engineer and Enterprise Architect who’s worked in computing for about 30 years. I’ve done senior technical and director roles for commercial companies ranging in size from 5 to 12,000. I’ve taught at Post Graduate Level, architected Enterprise Scale products, lead Technical Architecture groups and e-Solution practices, mentored teams building systems for Enterprise 100 companies, and still enjoy developing code.

My goal here is to collaborate and develop hands-on programming, electronics and control projects primarily aimed at teenagers, but hopefully suitable for everyone interested in how to make pervasive or ubiquitous computing artefacts.

      Mr O’Donohoe claimed in his blog that he had spoken on Saturday to the session chair ahead of his talk. That was published the day aftyer my blog. Coincidence?

      I had first met the session chair, Tony Ibbs on the Friday evening of the conference, and he seemed to be totally taken in, so I was astonished when O’Donohoe wrote that. I suspect most people don’t follow things up, but I found it difficult to believe, so I emailed the session chair, Tony Ibbs to ask.

      Tony Ibbs replied that he knew nothing, and was totally taken in. He wrote that if he had been told, he would have quickly told everyone it was a hoax, or left. He also added that he had written a comment on O’Donhoe’s blog to that effect, but O’Donohoe had not published it, but instead written to him.

      It seems that O’Donohoe was quite willing to impugn the reputation of an innocent bystander.

      I now see that O’Donohue has changed his blog to admit that the PYCON UK person he told about it being a hoax did not come to chair the event. I wonder how many other things are misleading in his blogs?
