In a week and a half I am flying out to Pasadena to the SCALE14x conference. I will be there from the evening of Wed 20th Jan 2016 to Sun 24th Jan 2016.
SCALE is a tremendous conference, as I have mentioned many times before. This is a busy year for me, so I wanted to share what I will be up to:
- Thursday 21st January 2016 at 4pm — Ubucon developer track. I’m doing a talk named Beyond building Ubuntu phone apps , which covers the things that you do with your app after you’re excited that you could build it at all; analytics, in-app payments, advertising, all the things that other platforms will expect, but done in a way that fits the Ubuntu vibe (at least a bit).
- Friday 22nd January 2016 at some point (you’ll know as soon as I do) — Alan Pope and I are talking about marvin, a cloud service where you can upload your Ubuntu phone apps and have them run on a bunch of phones to confirm they work
- Friday 22nd Jan 2016 at 8pm — Ballroom DE. Bad Voltage: Live — yes! The live show of the podcast. Come join us for a fun, informative, and irreverent live Bad Voltage performance. There will be free beer, lots of prizes (including a $2200 Pogo Linux workstation, Zareason Strata laptop, Amazon Fire Stick, Mycroft, Raspberry Pi 2 kit, plenty of swag and more), and plenty of audience participation and surprises. If you’re not sure if you’re coming to SCaLE yet, then (1) this ought to be enough to swing the balance, (2) how are you not sure?, and (3) you can save money on your SCaLE ticket by using our discount code, yes indeed.
- Sat 23rd Jan 2016 at 8pm — Ballroom DE. The Weakest Geek. In which I am a participant. Should be fun, I do believe…!
I am looking forward to seeing you all there and if you would like have a meeting while I am there, then… well, I’ll be in the bar, most likely. Track me down for a chat. Or drop me a note.
(With apologies to Jono for stealing his format and, like, half his words…)
