At OrlandoiX This Weekend

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Its hard to believe its here, but OrlandoiX officially kicks off this weekend. I'll be working with the folks from Gamer's Hive at their booth in the convention center. Stop by, grab some swag, check out the site and say hello! While I'm only going for the weekend, the festival continues into next week with more panels, exhibits and keynotes.

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.

OrlandoiX Preview Event Slides + Orlando Rising Trailer

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

The preview event for OrlandoiX was a big success. There was a huge turnout and a lot of great thoughts in terms of what the festival should encompass were introduced. If anyone missed it, you can view the event slides and also a trailer for the upcoming Orlando Rising showing at Full Sail Live on February 18th. Orlando Rising is a documentary on the great tech community in central Florida and offers a glimpse of what's to come.

OrlandoiX (Orlando Interactive Experience) is a new digital festival scheduled to take place in Orlando, FL in October of 2015. This is going to be a major production promising to bring in thousands of professionals from across the globe to take part in over 200 events in downtown Orlando.

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!
