I've just got back from presenting at this months' London Web. Thank you to everyone who turned up, I hope you had as much fun as I did - from those I spoke to it seemed as though everyone got a lot out of it.

Congratulations to Nathan O'Hanlon, the organiser of London Web, for becoming a father today (technically, yesterday now). Obviously he couldn't make the meetup today - which made things interesting as I found myself introducing myself!

As I have done previously, I asked the audience (of around 50 people) what Dev Tools they were using as their primary development tool and the answers were (roughly) as follows:

  • Chrome: 50%
  • Firebug: 45%
  • Firefox: 1 person
  • Internet Explorer: 0
  • Opera: 0
  • Safari: 1

It's interesting to see the continued usage for Firebug despite it not receiving updates as frequently as the others. I hope the tools for Firefox, Opera and Safari are being used (even if not as primary tools) as they are all great resources. As I mention in my talks, we are not building sites for just one browser, so it is important to know the features and benefits of each.

Here are the slides for my London Web talk. If you'd like me to talk at your event, drop me a message. I've signed up to speak at a few conferences, so I'm hoping to get to share the Dev Tools love around the world; but in the meantime I should be able to announce my next London talking appearance in the next few days so stay tuned.

Night London!
