Orlando Tech Week kicks off in just a couple of weeks with the return of BarCamp Orlando on Saturday, September 27th! For those not familiar with BarCamp, it's an all day tech-themed event where anyone can give a presentation. If you plan on presenting, you'll want to arrive early and grab your slot as they tend to fill up quickly. I'm excited for this year's event and encourage anyone in the area with an interest in tech to attend. For more details check out the official BarCamp Orlando website.

A Better Work Week

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

I had a great time today at Barcamp Orlando! I saw quite a few interesting and funny talks and was able to grab a speaking slot for my presentation on working a more efficient 4 day, 32 hour work week. It seemed to go over really well; there were some great questions and feedback from the audience.

I've put the presentation online if you want to look over the slides. However, I'm not sure you'll get much out of them without the talk to give some context. They were more or less just shorthand notes so I could remember what to talk about next.

Speaking at Barcamp Orlando…maybe

Monday, April 9th, 2012

This saturday, April 14, is Barcamp Orlando; a non-conference conference. What the heck does that mean? It's an all day event running 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM in downtown Orlando. There will be four rooms for speakers; the kicker is that all the speakers sign up to talk the day of the conference! I've prepared a presentation, an HTML5 slideshow no less, and will arrive early in an attempt to snag a speaking slot (no guarantees).

The presentation is tentatively titled A Better Work Week and goes into the details about the benefits of working a 4 day, 32 hour week instead of the standard 5 day, 40 hour week.

This is something that I feel strongly about and I hope the idea can gain some momentum in the US. If you're in the area please drop by and check it out!
