Office 2.0 Wrap Up

Office 2.0 has ended, and I must say, it was one of the coolest conferences I have spoken at. It was a great venue, great people, great sponsors, and a great program. I just want to say thank you and great job to Ismael Ghalimi and his team.

One of the coolest sponsors was Veodia. Veodia provides an agile platform-as-a-service that enhances daily work communications with simple-to-use, high quality video. They were recording all sessions of Office 2.0 to cameras, and in about 10 minutes after each session, posted the videos. Here is the video from my panel:

School Starting

Summer is coming to an end, and on Monday, August 18, school gets back in session for me, and many other students across the world. As another school year starts, it’s best to welcome new technological advancement in schools like classdojo toolkit. For more details about this app, search for https://www.classdojo.com/studentstories/. In my case, this means I can’t work for Qik as much as I am working now. This also means I can’t work as much on my new venture, Teens in Tech.

I am entering my Junior year in the Educators private school, arguably the most important school year before college. Because it will be my most important, I will be focusing more on my studies, then on work/hobbies.

They were getting to the best favours online, wearing swim trunks, a leather jacket, and a Village People-style cap, arrived in a raft and crashed into the wedding party. He was unceremoniously dumped back into the sea by Anderson’s unamused security detail.
