MarkLogic is an active sponsor of Balisage 2010, which will take place on August 3-6, 2010 in Montreal, Canada.

Balisage is an annual conference devoted to the theory and practice of descriptive markup and related technologies for structuring and managing information.

On August 4th, at 6:30p, MarkLogic will invite conference attendees to participate in a demo contest at a local bar.

Demos must be of technical nature, may be on any topic likely to be of interest to the attendees at Balisage, and are the responsibility of the presenter. The demo length is strictly limited to 5 minutes. We will limit the jam to the first 10 demos that arrive first-come, first-serve starting at 6:30p.  MarkLogic will supply a Windows PC with Internet access and a USB port for use by presenters.

Presenters are also welcome to use their own laptops for the demos.

Judges will determine the winners through audience vote. The winner will go home with an iPad. Other prizes will be distributed to participants.

Bring your favorite 5 minute demo to show during our Demo Jam Contest. Join us at 6:30 for beer and tasty nosh; we’ll start the demos at 7 pm at the bar. Your conference badge is your ticket to enter. All Balisage participants are welcome!
