From Maker Faire, I gave a presentation about Google Glass, notably what it does, and how developers/makers can interface with the device. It went over so well, the presentation was repeated the next day for another full house.
I gave a flash talk at the WordPress.com VIP Developer Workshop a few weeks ago about how we are using WordPress for Maker Faire. Over the last few months, we have built a fairly robust tool for generating applications, scheduling events, and managing all of the data for the Maker Faire app, all using WordPress.
I already wrote about my Ignite talk from a few weeks ago, but I just spotted the video and wanted to get it online for the world to judge see.
When I gave the talk, I felt like I was racing through the whole thing, it seems a little more paced hearing it now.
WordCamp Utah 2010 will be held August 28th at University of Utah, in the Skaggs Biology Building. This is a great opportunity to spend a day with local WordPress developers, users, and fans of all kinds! Presentations will cover a range of topics, with two tracks running throughout the day.

The vital details:
Just wanted to post my presentation from tonights event so that if any one wanted the slides, they would be available. These slides were largely borrowed from lead BuddyPress developer Andy Peatling. (Thanks!)
We have a little neighborhood get together with people that work in the tech industry. I gave a little presentation on Twitter last night. I gave a general overview, and then shared some of the tools that I use with Twitter.
TwitterMail creates tweets from a discrete email address. I use it to forward emails from the Salt Lake County Sheriffs department on canyon operations. In user here.
TwitterFeed takes an RSS feed, and the publishes an excerpt too Twitter.
Takes care of the tedious work of following people back that you follow. Also adds auto follow messages when someone follows you. Social surveys have recently been added too.
Nice Air app that gives you updates and then gives you the ability to search and find topics on Twitter.
