DemoJam at Balisage 2010 on August 4, 2010

by Cleo Haynal

Beer and Demo!

What better way to finish the day at one of the world's premier XML events?


On August 4th, at 6:30p, MarkLogic will invite the Balisage 2010 conference attendees to participate in a demo contest at the Sir Winston Churchill Pub Complex in the Karina Room.

The address is 1459 rue Crescent, Montréal, and is walking distance from the conference hotel.

About the contest:

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.  (Mac folks, best to bring your connectors).

Judges will determine the winners through audience vote. The winner gets 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!
