Revealing Errors in Zagreb

I’m going to be giving another revealing errors talk this week at the cultural center Mama in Zagreb, Croatia. The talk is scheduled for 14:00 on January 10th and will be part of the weekly skill sharing meeting. It should be a lot of fun and there will be time talk to chat and grab a coffee or something afterward. Please join if you can and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

OSCON Keynote

This year, I was invited to give a keynote presentation on revealing errors at the annual O’Reilly Open Source conference. The keynotes this year were all short form — 15 minutes — but I tried to squeeze in what I could. Although I was “helped” in this regard by the fact that I talk too quickly in general, I think the talk hit the core themes of the project and offered a few key examples that will be familiar to RE’s regular readers.

I’m happy with the result: a couple thousand people showed up for the talk despite the fact that it was at 8:45 AM after the biggest “party night” of the conference!

For those that missed it for whatever reason, you can watch a video recording that O’Reilly made that I’ve embedded below.

A larger version of the Flash video as well as a QuickTime version is over on and I’ve created an OGG Theora version for all my freedom loving readers.

Revealing Errors Talks

I’ve recently given two talks on Revealing Errors at LUG Radio Live USA and at Penguicon. I’ll be giving at least two more in the near future: today (June 18, 2008 — sorry for the late notice!) at MIT for Boston Linux Unix and at OSCON in Portland, Oregon on July 25.

There’s a post on Copyrighteous (my personal blog) with more details and links from my talks page to notes and slides.

So far, they’ve been successful and lots of fun. I travel frequently and am interested in doing more. Contact me if you’d be interested in organizing something.
