Last week I traveled to Austin, Texas and the O’reilly Open Source Conference to share a talk called What’s Your Skateboard? This is a talk I enjoy sharing. It gives strategies for organizing and planning work. I started out talking so quickly that I tripped over my tongue a bit. I got it under control and conveyed the useful strategies to my audience. In another week, I’ll be giving this in a workshop format at PHP[tek], and I’m really excited about that! A 40 minute time slot, such as at OSCON, doesn’t leave attendees time to try it out. The practice will become a lot more clear when attendees can get their hands on some post-it notes and organize work.
