If you are visiting pretty much any (random) PHP conference these days, you will hear a lot of talk about “rating talks on joind.in”. For those not familiar with this site: it’s a site where you can find additional information about the talk (like slides), and where you can leave a rating and/or comment about the talks and conferences that you have attended.
It’s a great way to prepare for an upcoming conference: check out the talks you want to see, and see if the presenter has already given the presentation at another conference and view the rating / comments. This way, you have a good picture (although never the complete picture), of the presentation you are about to see. Also, often presenters will add their slidedeck to talks, so you can actually see what the presentation will look like.
More good news: I’ve been invited to speak at the 4developers conference on april 4th in warschau, Poland. This time, my talk will be about the joind.in android application I’ve written, the connectivity to 3rd party API’s and creating android applications in general. A lot of stuff to cover in a short period of time but it will be an exciting talk so if you are around, come and join the android fun.
Today I have pushed the v1.6 release of the Joind.in Android app to the market. A lot of things has changed, so it probably would have been more suited to rename it to v2.0. Here is a list of changes, plus a simple manual on usage.
When you visit PHP conferences nowadays, you’ll notice a lot of talk about the Joind.in website (http://joind.in). It’s basically a site where you can register a conference, all the lectures and as a visitor of those conferences, let the speakers know about what you think off the lecture. It’s a very good way for speakers to learn and perfect their presentations. It’s also a pretty awesome site (who’s code is available on github!) and new features are added around the clock.
