That Conference - Ways To Hack Your Day to Better Health

I am honored to be speaking this year at That Conference. That Conference is a conference with national speakers held every year in the Wisconsin Dells at the Kalahari Resort. It is very high on the awesome scale, and I wrote many words about it last year. Tickets went on sale yesterday, and are $25 off for a week. Go forth, click, buy and come back, I need your help!

This is the third year in a row I have had the chance to speak. For the inaugural That Conference, I spoke on SharePoint claims based security, Windows Identity Foundation and Access Control Services. You can find the slides on my site.

2012 That Conference

Last year, I put on a tin foil hat, so aliens couldn't read my brain waves, and talked about Being You and managing your digital identity on the web. I talked a lot about security, Azure Websites, WordPress and Two Factor authentication. You can also view that slide deck here.

This year, my presentation is entitled, You Can't Always Be Hiking - Ways to Hack Your Day to Better Health. You can read more about it at the That Conference site. Here is a copy of the abstract

Developers do awesome things by creating apps and web sites that make users go ooh and ahh (and possibly occasionally curse). Despite doing awesome things for those around you, you generally are not doing awesome things for yourself. Sitting all day is bad for you. Noshing pizza to rip through a late night code jam isn’t optimal eating. Missing sleep trying to ship code is not great. In this presentation, we will talk through some ways developers can hack their day to better health with some simple steps and ideas you can incorporate in your day to make sure you are still slinging code in the old folks home.

I have several things I plan on talking about during presentation, but I would love to hear from other people. So in embracing the awesomeness of community that Clark Sell and rest of the wizards at That Conference have created, give me some of your tips! What do you do to keep healthy during the day? Feel free to sound off in the Disqus comments below with ideas and discussion!


 

Madison .NET User Group - May 2014

Thanks to everyone who came out to my Madison .NET User Group presentation on AngularJS on May 7th, 2014.

Had a really nice turnout and the group was great to give a talk to! Engaging, with lots of good questions. They even humored me when I went on a brief Lou Reed interlude!

You can find a copy of my slides on my site here.

The code for my demo is available on GitHub at https://github.com/jptacek/MadDotNet along with the slides.

There are also several blog posts I have written about Angular, http://www.jptacek.com/tags/angularjs/. Also, for those interested in learning more about DocPad, here is a post where I talked about moving over, http://www.jptacek.com/2013/12/saying-hello-to-docpad/

As always, feel free to reach out to me via email (blog [email protected] jptacek.com) or on twitter, @jptacek.

To those of you who attended, thanks much!


 

Milwaukee .NET User Group Presentation - April 2014

Thanks to everyone who came out to my Milwaukee .NET User Group presentation on AngularJS this week (April 8, 2014). There was a nice turnout and some good interactions and questions. I even got a little stressed out and winded, with the screen being in the front of the room and my laptop with code demos in the back! Hopefully it wasn't too distracting for those of you in attendance.

You can find a copy of my slides here.

The code for my demo is available on GitHub at https://github.com/jptacek/Wi-Ineta-AngularJS

As always, feel free to reach out to me via email or on twitter.

To those of you who attended, thanks much!
