by Janis Behan - Geek in Training This past weekend, I attended my first ever BarCamp. It was held on beautiful Granville Island, with the venues scattered about the island. It was a gorgeous, sunny day. It's too bad we were inside for most of it, geekin' it up... jk. I wasn't quite sure what … Continue reading BarCamp Vancouver 2008
I've been to a number of "tech" events lately with my brother Jordan, including CaseCamp, a dinner for the opening of the Northern Voice blogging conference, and most recently, the Strutta alpha launch party. My brother is the Director of Community Relations for Strutta, and you can read his blog for the site here. The … Continue reading The game is almost, nearly on…

It was a gorgeous day, so obviously the place was milling with people; tourists and locals. It was the perfect thing to do on … Continue reading Sunday Hike
Well, it has been a great start to the week. First of all, I ran 20 miles with my brother Jordan yesterday, and I did not die. I'm feeling more positive everyday about this marathon "stuff" (Translation: BAD-ASS hardcore training!). Second of all, the Canucks won Game 3 last night in Dallas, 2-1 in Overtime, … Continue reading Good Start
On Tuesday, Jordan convinced me to go to my first "Casecamp". There were about 4 presentations 15 min. each with questions afterwards. Most of the technical mumbo jumbo went right over my head, but there were a few moments when I was like "cool!". And after spending the last few months running with Jord, and … Continue reading Casecamp Vancouver
I wasn't going to mention anything about my job search until, of course, the search was over. (I didn't want to jinx it!) Now at last, I can stop searching! I'm ecstatic! I don't have to sit in front of the computer all day, looking at every on-line job site known to man, nervous as … Continue reading Something to Celebrate!
