October 24th, Knut and I held a talk at Making Web 2013 about the project we did together at Apt. Namely how we built and developed the technical systems on “Solo – the world’s largest message in a bottle”. This was my first time speaking at a conference, and I must say it was both a challenging and fun experience. One I really would like to repeat in the near future (hint hint, conference organizers). Still, the necessary preparations and rehearsals sure tok a lot more work than I imagined. Never the less, it was the work we put in that made it possible to give the talk in a comfortable manner. Well, after a the first 5 minutes that is
- Running an unorthodox project with many suppliers
- Creating tools for yourself in development and production
- A great story with a happy ending
Thanx to the organizers at the Making Web conference 2013 for a great experience! If you know of any other opportunities to give our talk, please get in touch. We can also modify it to be more/less about the build/electronics, web, JavasScript or just telling the story.
