I feel like a honeybee buzzing from flower to flower or in my case, buzzing from meeting to meeting. There is so much to do, so many things to pull together, so many clients to contact. Why all the activity? We’re getting ready for BbWorld ’07 and the Blackboard Developers Conference and the pre-conference workshops, user group meetings, client appreciation events and Open Source Day II that will make the week of July 9-14 a very full and fruitful week for everyone!
This year we’re having our 5th annual Blackboard Developers Conference and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Who should attend? You should – if any of these statements apply to you.
- I want to learn how to develop custom integrations and tools for my learning system
- I have some technical questions that only a Blackboard engineer could answer.
- I want to learn how to better manage the projects I’m responsible for.
- I need to connect with other clients who have the same challenges I do.
- I want to know what the merged architectural roadmap for WebCT and Blackboard is.
- I want to drive a race car.*
Our conference session schedule has something for all levels of System Administrator, Building Blocks and PowerLinks developers. There are sessions from clients sharing how they’ve developed Building Blocks and PowerLinks to meet their needs on campus. There are sessions about all aspects of the software development lifecycle and the tools and techniques to manage your projects. And we’ll also be talking about the Blackboard-WebCT technology roadmap.
* We’re also going to be having some fun.
But wait, there’s more! After last year’s BbDevCon we hosted an Open Source Day for interested Building Blocks developers. It was so popular that the OSCELOT group is hosting Open Source Day II (July 14) immediately following BbDevCon. I’m looking forward to attending OSDII to connect with developers who want to collaborate on open source projects of all kinds – come join us!
See you in Boston!
