Talking about iOS 5

Back in the days when I was teacher I dealt with difficult audiences on a daily basis. These days, I’m an editor / writer and speaking in public isn’t really part of my job description that much. That is rather disappointing since I like telling things to people that want to hear them.

That is why I’m happy to report that I will be leading a session / workshop on iOS 5 at the Dutch Apple-event iCreate Live 2011 in Amsterdam on October 1st. Apple’s new mobile operating system hasn’t been released yet, but that isn’t stopping me from presenting my findings in lecture format. Tickets are available NOW at The talk will be in Dutch, however, I hope that’s okay with you? See you there!
