Local-Motors is also seeking a PR person and a graphics designer. See the jobs page for info on all their openings.
Earlier this afternoon I finished the Moodle setup for my first presentation, Moodle GIFT Question Format, at SCaLE 9x. The presentation is in an hour.
I added the presentation to the Moodle instance. Now the presentation knows where the class is and the class knows where the presentation is. I just need to get the info to those attending :).
The conference reception and weakest-geek show start at 19:30.
Yesterday, I got Percona some consulting. Feels good to give back to a company that has certainly helped me out without ever interacting with me.
One of my students asked for references on improving a MySQL setup that had rolled over for his job. While I did recommend some local resources, I also recommended Percona. We had just talked about performance tuning, so the question was even on-topic :).
At FUDcon today. The largest FUDcon turnout ever. Lot's of good conversation in the hallway track.
Really enjoyed Curtis Zinzilieta's performance tuning basics presentation, Can't be here tomorrow, so I'll miss his second presentation if he makes it (he also has obligations and wasn't planning on being here tomorrow). Luckily he made a similar proposal for ABLEconf :).
Update: The Call for Presentations deadline was extended to Saturday, 2010Feb05, in order to take advantage of FUDcon being in town with lots of great potential speakers in the crowd.
Local Motors, creators of small production cars using Creative Commons licensing for car and part designs, is auctioning a Rally Fighter at the Barrett-Jackson car auction. The Rally Fighter is a really cool street legal off-road machine built for the desert of the southwest.
At tonight's PLUG meeting I asked everyone there to help promote ABLEconf. To that end, it was requested that I post a list of organizations to contact, so I pulled the list out of last year's wiki and created a blog entry.
If you are interested in helping us, please choose appropriate organizations for the Call for Presentations as that closes soon and we still need to reach more people.
The East Valley Free Software Stammtisch moved to Iguana Macks a couple of months ago. After having met in Tempe for over a decade, we moved a few miles east to Mesa. It's a good location and we've mostly had a good turnout. Sorry about December Brian :).
