Ever wonder what it’s like to run a workshop? Speaking all day comes with a new set of rewards and challenges, find out more about those as Stacey Mulcahy joins us on the podcast. We’ll talk about how public speaking differs between all day workshops versus an hour-long talk. We’ll also talk about what makes a workshop successful, how to plan one, and how to come up with topics to speak about.
Stacey Mulcahy is a Microsoft Technology Evangelist for Windows 8. She’s also really into physical computing – working with the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoard and the Arduino.
Stacey has spoken at over 45 events on a variety of topics that range from technical to workflow and process. Stacey has spoken at conferences like FITC in Toronto, Vancouver and Amsterdam, Reasons to be Creative, and Halifax Pop Explosion.
Keynote at jQuery Europe 2014.
In the keynote, I tried to analyse the massive discrepancy between what we as web developers get and how happy we seem to be.
We are an elite group in the job market: we are paid well, our work environment is high-tech and our perks make other people jealous. We even get the proverbial free lunches.
And yet our image is that of unsatisfied, hard to work with people who need to be kept happy and are socially awkward. I was confused that a group with all the necessary creature comforts is not an example of how easy working together could be. Instead, we even seem to need codes of conduct for our events to remind people not to behave badly towards people of the other sex or cultural background. Are we spoiled? Are we just broken? Or is there more?
I’ve found a few reasons why we can come across as unsatisfied and hard to handle and the biggest to me was that whilst we are getting pampered, we lack real recognition for what we do.
When you get a lot, but you yourself feel you are not really doing much, you are stuck between feeling superior to others who struggle with things you consider easy and feeling like a fraud. Instead of trying to communicate out about what we do, how much work it involves and why we do things in a certain way we seem to flee into a world of blaming our tools and trying to impress one another.
Is there a new anti-web trend of engineers who are relieved to finally get to use modern techniques when program for the web, tossing out "that icky stuff" and with it, actually trashing years of known best practices? Simon St. Laurent joins Jen Simmons.
Anil Dash and Jeffrey Zeldman discuss how government, media, and tech shape the world, and how we can influence them in turn. Our first meeting at SXSW in 2002. How selling CMS systems teaches you the dysfunction at media companies and organizations. Working for the music industry at the dawn of Napster. RFP-EZ. The early days of blogging. Designing websites for the government—the procurement problem. If we’re pouring all this time into social media, what do we want to get out of it? How big institutions work and how to have an impact on them. Living in “Joe’s Apartment.” Why, until recently, federal agencies that wanted a blog couldn’t use WordPress or Tumblr and how the State Dept got on Tumblr. Achieving empathy for institutions. Being more thoughtful about what I share and who I amplify on social media. The launch of Thinkup, and a special offer exclusively for Big Web Show listeners.
Marc Andreessen heads out to Silicon Valley. He hooks up with startup legend Jim Clark. They decide to form a company, Netscape, to build upon Mosaic’s previous success. They “get the band back together” by recruiting most of the original Mosaic development team. Netscape Navigator is developed. The company hustles to establish itself before other, larger competitors catch on to the opportunity that is the web browser market.

A young Marc Andreessen and a team of programmers at the NCSA on the campus of the University of Illinois create and publish the Mosaic browser, thereby creating the world wide web’s first killer app. Mosaic enjoys meteoric, overnight discuss. But the higher ups at the NCSA take the project away from the “kids” who created it. Examining Mosaic as the “trial run” for the product that would eventually be called Netscape Navigator.
