Tulsa Tech Fest, October 12, 2012

HTML5

HTML5 Track

Luke is working to put together another HTML5 track for Tulsa Tech Fest, potentially including speakers from Mozilla, Google, and Microsoft Open Technologies. Track content will cover HTML, CSS, and JavaScript technology that works across all platforms and devices. Stay tuned.

Fall Hackathon – HTML5 Appathon?

For the Fall hackathon we’ll go back to the 24-hour format. To combine efforts with the HTML5 Track at Tulsa Tech Fest, we might make the Fall Hackathon an HTML5 Appathon – to build HTML5 apps and distribute via Mozilla Marketplace, Windows Phone Marketplace, Chrome Web Store, etc.

Kids’ Scratch Camp

Trisha Salas is helping Lindsey Miller bring a Div Jr. event to Tulsa Tech Fest! Scratch Camps are hands-on days for 3rd-8th graders to learn computer programming with the Scratch language from the M.I.T. Media Lab. Contact Trisha or Lindsey for more details and to get involved. Please answer the Tech & Kids’ Events survey if you haven’t already (even if you don’t have kids – we want to know.)

turntable.fm bot

Blixa and Buddy have been re-writing the bot for our IRC channel with node.js and adding commands for our turntable.fm room. It’s a pretty cool project and a cool site for listening to music together.

Tulsa Community Foundation

Luke met with Steffanie Bonner from Tulsa Community Foundation about operating as a non-profit under the TCF banner. We are applying for a designated fund at TCF that will start us on our own 501c3 status. We desperately need someone with any organization skills to help us thru this process. Please please please contact Luke about it.
