The Developer Evangelist Handbook

Chris Heilmann unveils an online book that explains how to be a developer evangelist. Tons of good advice here. Read it if you're eager to talk about the stuff you're doing and want to convince other developers to use it.

Talking Point: Is South By South West overrated?

Good question. My answer is definitely Yes as a conference, but probably No for the social factor.

WebDirections North 2008

They're going to do it again: Web Directions North 2008 was just announced. I'm afraid I can't afford to visit it, but I'll be with the speakers in my thoughts.

Incidentally, there are quite a few speakers from outside the regular web dev circuit; excellent choice!

Picking Southby apart

Andy Budd on SxSW.

With a lot of people you can tell that the only reason they’re on a panel is to get a free ticket and add Southby to their list of speaking engagements.

Guilty as charged, I'm afraid. I didn't really prepare my 2007 session too well, either. (And yes, I'm planning to do a better job for the 2008 edition.)

On the other hand, is this entirely the speakers' fault? SxSW just is like that. If you're drowning in a lineup of 128 speakers, you'll start to take your session less seriously, especially when the organisation changes your room twice so that nobody can find you.

All in all I tend to split the blame between the speakers and the organisation.

The 3rd Annual Nigerian EMail Conference

Excellent idea.

"Write better emails. Make more moneys."

(Via Simon.)

In maybe-related news: today I read that the Dutch police have arrested a Nigerian musician who had a #1 hit in Nigeria about ... email scams!

Alastair Campbell's wrap-up. Interestingly, he visited exactly the same sessions as I did, and made many more notes.

@media 2007 Europe | Permalink

That media

Jeremy's wrap-up. He also mentions a slight disagreement with Patrick Griffiths about the Hot Topics panel. His rules for finding speakers for a conference (in which the speaker's gender is one factor among many) are worth a read.

Be a Creative Sponge

Jon 'Creative Hicks' Sponge wraps up @media, at which he did an excellent presentation, which turned out to be his first major one. Next October I'll be in the same position, and I hope I can bring it off as smoothly as he did.

There's a scramble for A-speaker status going on, and Jonathan reports from the trenches. It seems I've jumped on the speaking bandwagon just in time.

Web 2.0 Expover

Jeremy shares his thoughts about the Web 2.0 Expo. Interesting geekiness at the fringes, but corporate bullshit in the keynotes. Besides, it's HUGE, probably too huge for my taste.

How to Moderate a Panel

SxSW 2007 wrap up

Richard Rutter's wrap-up. He turns out to be responsible for the music at the Great British Booze-up, which, as I said, was the least loud party I visited.

That Austin thing in 07

Dustin Diaz's wrap-up. He and Cameron pissed Jeremy off by this one slide they showed, and that's a fight that's still going on. I'm wondering if Cameron Diaz haven't bitten off more than they can chew.

AJAX and Flash SXSW Talk

Jonathan Boutelle's slides. I found his presentation one of the more interesting ones I attended, because he drew my attention to yet another Big Divide that's plaguing us: the one between Ajax and Flash developers. Glad I talked to him; interesting conversations (even though the later one tended to be a bit on the drunken side).

SXSW'07: After the Storm

Jonathan Snook's wrap-up. Glad I finally met him and even talked to him for more than 30 seconds.

SxSW 2007 | Permalink

South Bye Bye South West

Malarkey's wrap-up. It's a pity I missed his presentation, but mine started when his stopped. On Monday we were nervous together at the smoking balcony, and it was good to see that even experienced presenters have this problem.

SxSW 2007 | Permalink

Another year, another Southby

Andy Budd's wrap-up. About the Great British Booze-up:

Unlike most events where you had to scream to be heard, people could actually talk to each other, promoting a very social event.

I completely agree; in fact I made this point to someone, but I'm not sure if it was Andy.

General message to all conference organisers (Patrick!): make sure people can actually hear each other at the parties. I'm not going there for the music, but for the talks. Besides, I have this slight hearing impairment that precludes me from hearing what other people say in a very loud environment, so this is especially important for me.
