In Greenville Grok Happens

Just spent the last few days up at the Greenville Grok event. If you’ve never been it’s a small conference where you can meet and talk to almost everyone that attends.

There are no lecture sessions at Grok. Instead they break up the attendees into small groups, called 10/20s, where anyone can start a conversation about any subject.

What are 10/20s?

This is how the event organisers define them:

10/20s are mediated discussions between about a dozen participants. Any participant in a 10/20 can propose a topic for discussion. You can talk about software, your work environment, your personal challenges–anything that’s on your mind.

After 10 minutes of conversation, the session leader can choose to close the topic and ask for another. If the conversation is particularly interesting, the session leader can extend the clock for another 10 minutes, hence the name, “10/20s.”

If you have time and the funds I think you should come down to Greenville SC next spring and hang out at Grok 2016

For me the highlight was meeting Aaron Draplin and hearing his “Tall Tales from a Large Man”.

I’ve Moved Greenville Web’s Office

Nope moved back to Overbrook!

Open Works was great but I need my quite space! 😉

If you want to stop by and meet me I have moved my office to 2 N. Main S, Suite 200,  Greenville, SC 29601.

It’s a great space down town Greenville SC. It’s a social open work space with a bunch of folks working in different fields, so it should be an adventure.

I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you on your next Web Project.

Don’t be shy and stop on by!
