May 2022



May saw the last of this year’s beautiful bluebells, and the boys enjoyed running around amongst them.

Back to Barcelona

After Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Mar I returned to Barcelona for the more focussed Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions World Congress. It was a much smaller event, but for me the conversations were much better, perhaps because this time our partner ZARIOT had a stand right on the main drag, and everybody there was into IoT stuff.

Although the event was smaller, Barcelona seemed pretty much as busy (certainly in terms of hotel space); likely due to the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) event happening in much of the rest of the Fira Gran Via venue.

I stayed at Plaça d’Espanya again, though this time in a hotel rather than an apartment. The Occidental Barcelona 1929 was nice, and felt relaxed; and I find the location a good compromise between getting to the venue, and getting around the rest of Barcelona.


Sadly the IoT event meant that I missed most of Devoxx UK, but I was back in time for my talk on the final day. It was good to catch up with friends there, but also nice to see an audience that wasn’t the usual suspects I see everywhere else. I wish I’d had more time to hang out and get to know new people. Maybe next year?

MAME/RC2014 stuff

The RC2014 Mini stuff I put into MAME back in February has been torn out, and I’m not sad about it. The new RC2014 MAME Driver by Miodrag Milanović is pretty much everything I’d dreamed of doing, and it was a pleasure to collaborate with him on documenting what it can do.
