Local Meetup Presentations
This is a step up from social hour. Do you have some topic you can talk about for 5-15 minutes that would be interesting to the members of some group? It's a great way to make yourself the central topic of conversation, and get people coming to you afterwards to ask follow up questions. You can also post your slides online, and the video if one was recorded. (Hint: use screencast software to record one yourself.) Posting presentation decks and videos online …

…developer platforms, and my experiences while helping to do that at Jive Software. Presentations are hard to quantify in terms of a pay off - it takes a lot of preparation time, and a fair amount of stress, but it's worth pushing yourself. It was great to have two of my proposals accepted, though in the future, I'll only give one talk per conference. Better to keep it simple, focus on less things and do them better.
Travel was obviously part of the plan last year, and I think we …
…approach. To explain, I'll start by examining the most common SoC model: Content, Presentation, Behavior.
The Classics: CPB
If you haven't heard of the SoC principle, you've probably heard of the three 'layers' of Content, Presentation, and Behavior. These are the three classic concerns that front-end developers are taught to keep separate. How to separate them is another matter, owing to some interpretation. Here's the version I learned:
The concerns …

Presentation Of Content Influences Perception of Value
I try to avoid the word "content" because I think that "content" auto-commoditizes the value of whatever it is you are offering. Shakespearean plays would sound like terrible wastes of time if they were described as "content." Regardless, I'm going to use "content" illustratively for the next few paragraphs.

Next Presentation Platform: Browser
If you want your message to travel, then the browser is your (future) presentation platform of choice . No proprietary formats, no conversion nightmares, instant access from billions of devices, easy sharing, and more. Granted, the frameworks and the authoring tools are still lacking, but that is only a matter of time.
Unfortunately, we are off to a false start. Instead of trying to make the presenter more effective, we are too busy trying to replicate …
Presentation slides will be available soon. Thanks to a kind offer from Box , we are creating a custom site to host the speaker slides in a central repository so the knowledge shared in the conference will be available to all in the community.
I'd like to close with a final thanks to everyone who attended and/or worked so hard to make the conference such a success for everyone. Our goal for future conferences remains the same as always: to help the MySQL ecosystem continue …

Notes from Daniel Burka's Presentation
I don't really consider myself to be an "entrepreneur" or "founder".
I think of myself as more of product designer; someone whose job is to shepherd creations from ideation to implementation to improvement.
In Silicon Valley, they really fetishize the idea of "founders".
In fact, there's a group of incubators in a place called Founders Den .
There's even a FoundersCard (and …
