Work sent me + the boys on my team to a conference in Brighton recently. It was a bit over my head (or rather, not that interesting, and I intentionally ignore developer-esque stuff anyway. That way they can't revert me back into a developer - compsci degree or no) but it was fun to ride down with the boys on the train, and hang out a little in Brighton. Me and a guy I work with went down to the pier for a bit to explore. It was novel - it's all set up as a mini carnival with rides, and stores and things. Except summer is over and winter on its way in, so nothing was open. It was a bit eerie, but made exploring quite fun.
It was a fun little day trip. Well enjoyable!
