Get a Discount to See Me Speak at OSCON
June 17th, 2011
I'm very excited to announce that two of my presentations have been accepted to OSCON this year (thankfully back in Portland again). OSCON is one of my favorite conferences because I get to learn as well as teach. There is such a diverse set of topics that I try to get out of my comfort zone and learn something new every year. (One year it was an intro to Arduino). OSCON will be this July 25th-29th in Portland Oregon. And let me tell you: Portland in July is simply beautiful, with the best microbrews in the country.
Travel, Tablets, and Sleep
February 19th, 2011
I'm on the plane home from Mobile World Congress. It's been a heck of a couple of weeks. I've gotten some new coworkers, a new boss, announced our new products, showed off the new devices in Barcelona, and spread the word of webOS itself to anyone who will listen. I've got several blogs coming about what we've announced, some fun new demos, app speculation, and updates on my open source projects.

I'm speaking at OSCON in Portland next week, and what a busy week it will be. In addition to my personal session on marketing open source projects, I've added some Palm stuff in collaboration with HP. If you can't attend OSCON but will be in Portland I will also be speaking at the Portland Java Users Group. I'll also be working at the HP booth where we will be giving away phones, books, tshirts and some super nice water bottles. Here's the full schedule:
Palm Developer Day and OSCON

A big part of my new job at Palm is education, in the form of tutorials, blogs, and of course speaking at conferences. Two new speaking engagements have recently come up. Palm Developer Day and OSCON. Read on for details.
OreDev on Design
November 10th, 2009
I was in Sweden all of this past week for the OreDev conference. I had a wonderful time last year and made it first on my list to see again. The attendees are friendly and their technologies diverse, making it such a good learning environment. I was especially pleased to see they have added an entire track on User Experience. What follow's is OreDev's take on the future of user experience design, from the visualization technologies coming out of Microsoft Research, to a brief history of touch interfaces, to the latest rapid development technologies for mobile devices.
Art, Design, and Sweden

I had hoped to have my next tutorial article done by now but, alas, travel and JavaStore deadlines snuck up on me. I'm currently flying to Sweden for the annual OreDev conference.
