Be ODD for a day


Sessions Picked, NOW the Hard Work Begins

I just sent out a very difficult email to 19 potential speakers who wanted to speak at Ottawa Dev Day! Some people will read that email with excitement, and some.....with disappointment. I had a hard time "taking the hockey stick" to some sessions and having to be the bearer of bad news to some good friends. However, given several factors, we have an obligation to our conference attendees, sponsors and even the speakers, to deliver the BEST technical developer conference we can! I believe we have achieved a great threshold for everyone and YOU, the attendees will get your moneys worth! So please, check out the Agenda page, then head on over to the Registration page and I hope to see you Sat May 30th!


Now for the hard task

Yesterday, April 12, was the session submission deadline. Today, well, actually tonight, I have the very challenging task of picking the final cut for sessions we're going to deliver to our @OttDevDay attendees Sat May 30th at Algonquin College!

Picking the sessions is a hard job. Why? Because the people who submitted sessions put in a lot of effort to enter in their information, to be creative about their details and they put in some sweat'n'tears to get it done. And not everyone gets picked. I dislike that part of the conference, BUT I'm hoping that the conference attendees, sponsors and even the speakers will be happy with the final agenda. I hope to release it tomorrow night.

Ottawa Dev Day
