After returning from KSCOPE two weeks ago, I was again approached to be a judge this year on the Geekathon 2017.
I was thrilled when the option was left open to me to compete this year. instead of be a judge. As much as I love to offer my insight and expertise in a judging capacity, I really do love a great maker opportunity, which I haven’t had much time to allocate to with all the work I’m doing at Delphix.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to this year’s competition, so look out maker’s, there’s a new…err, old gun….old set of Mickey ears in town! (For those of you who aren’t getting that, next year’s KSCOPE 2018 conference is in Orlando, Fl…. :))
I’ve been part of the maker’s space for a number of years, finding it one of the most diverse and supportive groups in the nation. I’ve presented at local events and been advertised in the NY Times to represent makers for the Barnes and Noble Book store events.
I’ve officially built out my proposal and submitted it as a team of one, but if you’re new to the makers space, unsure of what to do with a beacon or would just like to have a team to collaborate with, that’s an option! Just find your maker-mates, come up with an awesome idea and if you need a beacon, just ask- the ODTUGr’s will be glad to send you one so you can compete! Just go to the ODTUG Geekathon site and submit a team and an idea!
