Well, after a brief absence from Penn State (during which I was getting a life time out) I am back at Penn State’s Annual Web conference, this year in it’s 10th iteration. Quite the full day, and quite the breadth of knowledge offerings. There were many things I would like to have gotten to had I been able to be in two places at once; but, barring that, I’m simply going to have to wait for the presentation slides and/or handouts to be posted so I can see what I missed in other areas.
My favorite finds?
- An actual overview of the Web Developer toolbar that I’ve had on my machine for 9 months now, but didn’t have the time (or patience) to explore on my own;
- I now actually know the difference between Drupal, Movable Type, and Plone;
- Greasemonkey, which allows me to play with someone else’s mind–err, I mean website;
- This latest little gem from another instructor in Denver somewhere, taken from the ubiquitous YouTube. It made me catch my breath:
While I won NONE of the doorprizes yet again, I was definitely engaged in the process. And that’s what counts, right?
Finding the good stuff amid the rest is just a bonus.
