eHUG International Mini Conference on LiveCode

Post by Mark » Wed Jan 11, 2017 1:53 am

[scroll down to the latest post for more information]

International LiveCode Mini Conference

Time and date are preliminary!

In the second half of February, an international LiveCode Mini Conference has been scheduled. The dates are still to be determined. The conference has been planned to take place during the weekends of 18 or 25 February.

PLEASE NOTE: While the conference is called a "LiveCode" conference, anyone with an interest in rapid application development is invited: database admins, Filemaker users, Xojo fans, SuperCard aficionados, and anyone who is looking for new ways to be creative with computers.

All information is preliminary. As the date of the conference approaches, we will have all information available.

The conference will consist of one day with multiple sessions. We're planning simultaneous workshops and presentations. We're thinking of four times two simultaneous sessions of 30 minutes. Afterwards, there will be plenty of opportunity to meet with fellow programmers and discuss any topic you like.

The conference will be held in Antwerp, Belgium, to facilitate participation by British, French and German people. Obviously, you're also invited if you live in a different country.

We're planning to rent a conference room. Therefore, there will be a small fee of approximately 35 euro (including VAT, with invoice). If you want to host a workshop or give a presentation, you'll be eligible for a discount. Since fees are small, discounts will be small too.

Possible topics:
- Getting started with LiveCode
- Advanced LiveCode scripting
- Widgets
- Arduino and Raspberry Pi
- Usage in real life (home and business)
- DBMS (MySQL, PostGreSQL, XML, others)
- FileMaker
- SuperCard
- HyperStudio
- Xojo
- PHP
- other subjects

You might want to spend one or two nights in a hotel. We'll be happy to help you find board and lodgings. The hotel room, drinks, food and other expenses will be on your own account.

We would like to know how many people are interested. Please, send a reply to support (at) economy-x-talk.com before Friday 13th if you're interested. This weekend, all decisions will be made final.

This might be the only edition of this conference! Grab the opportunity and make sure you're there! It is going to be special for sure!

It sounds brilliant - and the price is right, but I can't attend.

I think the beginning livecode but more so the advanced livecode would still be worth recording even with an android or iphone and an audio recording with a phone to create a transcript.

I would certainly throw a few shekels to be able to download it.

It doesn't have to be a Cecil B. Demill Epic in CinemaScope

Next week is the 'eHUG International Mini Conference on LiveCode'. The conference will take place on 25th February from 13:00h. until 18:00h. The conference room is open from 12:00h. The location is the Ibis hotel, Meistraat 39 in Antwerp, Belgium.

Participation is only possible if you purchase a ticket no later than 22nd February. The tickets will be sent to you later this week. There are 20 tickets available. If you want to be sure of a ticket, you'll need to act quickly.

The prices of the tickets are listed on the website. Additionally, non-alcoholic beverages are available for 6 euro per person. Coffee and tea are available from a dispenser (for which my apologies). If any budget is left, it will be spent on additional drinks or perhaps on dinner afterwards.

Everything we need is available: WIFI, a beamer with VGA connection, electricity, at least one extra laptop, drinks, etc. If you have any special requests, just let me know.

We need more speakers! You can tell something about your own project, private or professional, for which you have created a liveCode stack. If you use a different platform, such as SuperCard, Filemaker, HyperStudio or Xojo, you're very welcome to tell us about it.

Do you think you're not so good at making presentations? Organise a workshop instead! Just show us how you work with your favorite tool and if you like, or if you can, invite your public to join.

Please indicate that you're a speaker when you buy a ticket. You will receive a discount. A discount is also available if you buy the book Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner.

After the formal part of the conference, we may have dinner together. The next day, we might have a social event before going home. We will organise this on the spot.

I hope to have informed you sufficiently. Just send me an e-mail right-away if you have any questions and I'll reply as soon as I can.

Mark well done for sorting out this day.

I'm sorry to say I won't be able to attend - I was going to but it now turns out that I won't be able to after all. I have a thing on that won't finish until 10:30 Saturday morning and I wouldn't reach Antwerp until something like 7pm

I hope it goes really well for all of you and that you have a smashing mini conference!

Kind regards

Dave
