Philly Emerging Tech Video

by gregg on Apr 02, 2009

Last week Jason and I were invited to speak at Philly Emerging Tech. I was impressed with their speaker line up last year, so I was honored to be a part of it this year, and they even had me produce a conference video for them. The video contains some familiar faces including David Black, Nick Sieger, Ezra Zygmuntowicz, David Chelimsky, and John Resig (if you're a jQuery fan).

Ruby Hoedown Day 1

by Jason on Aug 08, 2008

Gregg and I are at the Ruby Hoedown in Huntsville, AL and I thought I'd take notes and give a summary of the talks. Gregg is going to do one of his summary videos in the next few days but I thought some people might prefer actually reading about it. I was going to live blog this but started late and couldn't type my notes all in time. Enjoy.
