Penguicon fast approaches
Wow, who the heck let it be near the end of the month already? Well, with the impeding end of the month it means we’re that much closer to Penguicon 2012, and I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to be able to participate this year. And the beauty part is you can participate too. Here’s how:
- Come to my talks! I’ll be hosting several talks at Penguicon, including the Ubuntu Release Party (along with the rest of the Ubuntu US MI loco and the good folks at Penguicon, lest I get too full of myself there), as well as a talk on Podcasting for fun and possibly profit, and what’s new for Precise Pangolin (aka 12.04, and once again with those fine folks in the Ubuntu US MI :oco). We’re still looking for folks to help out with the “what’s new” panel discussion for 12.04, so there’s your easy opportunity to participate. See? That wasn’t so hard, now was it?
- Come to other people’s talks! Ryan Kather will be talking about making Juju Charms (no, not the ones that turn burlap dolls into voodoo weapons, these help you deploy programs on servers with just a few commands). Also, Rick Harding will be talking about the differences between JQuery and YUI (and more importantly, convincing developers to think more about their framework choices). And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention my lovely wife JoDee will be talking about Citizen Science programs, and how you can help scientific pursuits in your spare time.
- TONS MORE! Seriously, head to http://penguicon.org and click on the schedule link. IF you can’t find something to plop your patookas in front of, you’re not trying hard enough.
Plus, I’ll be putting together an episode of Open Metalcast at my podcasting talk
, and giving out some DVDs with a selection of previous Open Metalcast Episodes. (Unfortunately, my DVD burner isn’t working properly, so this isn’t going to happen. Sorry!) Also, it has been rumored that I might have ribbons to give out.
Hope to see you there!
