Remember last year's Flex Hackfest at Swampcast HQ in beautiful Winter Park? This year, you can bring your own project! Get help from the expert, Adobe Evangelist James Ward
. Mike Levin
and James will lead this hands on event. ($100/person) But, as you all might know, the people attending the Jam are all part of the learning experience.
We'll have a day of coding in cool, shady Winter Park. Bring your project in any form: as just an idea, or written down as a specification, or in some stage of development.
The idea is that the Flex Jam will be a kick start to your project. James Ward will remove a lot of the difficulty of "discovery" by pointing you in the right direction to get those features developed. Or, your project can be examined or coaxed along from a higher level, looking at your project from a conceptual level. Basically, the Jam will provide whatever help you are looking for from the perspective of a group.
The location has changed! We'll meet at Cup o Soul Cafe' at 711 Orange Avenue in beautiful Winter Park. Cup o Soul has a comfortable conference room. So, all you need to bring is your laptop.
Cup o Soul opens at 8:00am
We'll meet at around 8:30 for coffee and intros
The Jam will begin at 9:00
We'll take a break for lunch at 12:00
Then, we'll resume the Jam at 1:00
We'll have another break for coffee around 3:00
We'll start winding up at 4:30-5:00
There are a number of options for continuation after 5, if you are having a great time and want to keep on jamming longer. We can stay put or move to a local pub.
Lunch will be provided at Cup o Soul or pop out on your own to any of several good lunch spots in the area.
Accomodation: If you're coming in from out of town and you want to spend the night, many options are available. There are budget hotels such as the Best Western nearby. There's also historic accommodation! The Park Plaza Hotel in downtown Winter Park is available. Orlando is pretty well equipped for visitors...
