It looks like most of the talks from the recent Scala Days conferences are now online.
A video I want to watch: Why writing correct software is hard, and why math (alone) won’t help us.
I learned about “visual notes” as a way of capturing presentations last year, and I really like the technique. The image shows the visual notes from a talk titled, “Build Your Dreams”. The drawing/artwork is by Lynne Cazaly.
As conferences go, the next one for me is the Yoga Journal Conference, which will be held September 22-29, 2013, in Estes Park, Colorado.
Today I decided that I will no longer tell people that I went to the Buddhist Geeks Conference this past weekend. The reason isn't that I'm embarassed about it in any way. Indeed, I met some of the nicest, most interesting people I've ever met, and I hope to stay in touch with them, help them in their missions, and see them again next year.
An artist named Kelly Kingman did a wonderful job of capturing the 2013 Buddhist Geeks Conference talks. I’ve never seen anything like that, and they are a wonderful way of visually capturing a talk. (Sadly, my phone camera is messed up, and I don’t have any higher-resolution images than this, so I hope some other geeks will post their photos over time.)
Over the weekend I saw that I'm on Borland's speaking schedule for their annual conference, BorCon 2004. I guess I better get to work on my presentations. :) Actually, I'm ready to go. I'm set to give one talk on Java Performance Tuning and another on Function Point technology. Giddyup.
I haven't frequented it before, but the Java & Internet Glossary at mindprod looks pretty good.
