Talks at barcamp.

October 2, 2006

I went to the same first talk as elly. Everyone did. It was the only one on at that time. Dont blame anyone because going first is always very nerve wracking. Leave it to a lawyer to not be bothered about speaking in front of a crowd, ‘in my opinion’. Joke Joke.

Next I think I went to microformats. This was very interesting. I learned a lot. I think the microformat for events is something I need to learn and implement. 


I think the last talk I sat through was ellys talk. Hmm, No I sat in for a bit in some afterwards. I quite enjoyed it as we both work with a lot on non-techs, so I found it very relevent.

However, I must admit to being a bit nervous – not sure what the people attending will be like, or if they’ll be interested in what I have to talk about… and to top it all off, the Hubbie has never heard me present/talk in front of a crowd!

Ha. Same thoughts. My own noteworthy persons best friend lives in cork so he will be meeting up with him. I don’t know if they will stay for any of the conference. They will probally head off shopping around the city.

Just noticed this on BarcampIreland blog

Looking through the list, some of the ones that jump out at me are:


I really hope now that people find it interesting. 

Just checked out barcampireland backnetwork

Wandered around the back network. Its quite cool. I’m not quite sure what to use it for but I liked looking at the profiles.

Thanks Conor O Neil for adding me as a contact.  

There seems to be a fair amount of blogging about the event. I was reading the post on presentations from the barcamp blog.

I dont have a laptop, so Ill be bring either slides on a floppy or a printout for a projector. Most likely printouts.

I kind of hoping there will be so many interesting other people I wont have to talk. I’m a bit nervous. But I plan to be well prepared with links and references in case anyone is actually interested. 

I’m going to bring a paper notebook to jot down interesting ideas and information I hear about a the conference. Non techie I know, but it works. Im quite looking forward to actually getting to listen to everything. This is going to be my first tech conference so Im hoping it will go well.
