The d.construct web conference was awesome. Anytime you get to meet up with other web developers and discuss the future of the web, it is sure to be an inspiring experience. Add to that a great line up of speakers and it is guaranteed to be a memorable day.

I went to the conference knowing very little about web services and with some real concerns about their viability in a real business environment. However, a day spent chatting with other developers and listening to the speakers, not only educated me but also made me very excited about the potential.

I spent most of the day interviewing, however only a fraction are used on the show. Audio quality was a constant battle and background noise a real issue. However, there is loads of great stuff and I have tried to piece it together in such a way that it introduces you to the potential of web services as well as providing you with a sense of the day.
