I DO have a wild weekend planned and it’s ALL to benefit Texas Forums.OK, so it will benefit me, too AND I’ll have some fun
Beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Friday evening, I’ll be participating in a 48 hour code-a-thon (software development marathon) with a group of talented programmers working on open source software for non-profits. I’ll be spending significant amount of time at tek republik in Austin Texas representing Texas Forums as a collaborating organization. I won’t be coding, but I will be working on this blog (look for more bells and whistles!) and some other Texas Forums technology that has gone unattended for too long.(Notice I am not committing to being there the full 48 hours. I’m probably too old to sleep in a tent pitched in a parking lot and may have to seek out more suitable accommodations, including a shower!)
I am very excited about this event. I spent about five hours yesterday with Silona Bonewald, the brains (and muscle) behind this event and the founder of The League of Technical Voters. We were both amazed at the crazy ideas we both have.
