The annual COMMON conference is just around the corner … this time in Reno Nevada.
Three significant things of note for this conference …
Al Barsa Memorial Scholarship
This is the first conference where the Al Barsa Memorial Scholarship will be awarded. While I don’t know who was selected, I have been told by Michelle August (Ex Director of the COMMON Education Foundation) that the recipient has been selected and will announced during the opening session. midrange.com contributed $500 to the scholarship.
Board of Directors Elections
There are three open positions on the COMMON Board of Directors. There are five candidates for the positions … all of whom are well known to midrange.com subscribers (more information on the candidates can be found at the COMMON website):
- Bruce ‘Hoss’ Collins
- Richard Dolewski
- Léo Lefebvre
- Pete Massiello
- Trevor Perry
This is the first conference where yours truly will be presenting sessions … and I’m jumping in with both feet. I’m presenting three sessions.
- Introduction to WDSC/RDi Plug-in Development (52MK)
- Email Security Techniques (55CI)
- Blogging (51MJ, along with Trevor Perry)
If you’re attending COMMON, feel free to stop by the sessions. Also, I’ll be manning the MKS booth (#525) in the expo. You can pick up a midrange.com button there.
I’ll also have a small supply of midrange.com ball caps with me … which I will be giving out to a few deserving souls.
See you there.
