MilwaukeeDevHouse happened and you missed it… or you didn’t. Either way, you can watch this video that Time Lapse Bot and I created…

We used a real MiniDV camera this time, so we got double the resolution of the old camera, which is nice. We also had Sam Dodge doing a bit of Time Lapse Bot camera operation, so that’s cool…

I love how these time lapse videos encapsulate the events… I’m also in talks with SmallSharpTools.com to do another Time Lapse Bot upgrade, which will result in greater roaming capabilities of the unit.

You can also watch on blip.tv or grab the hires version if you like. Just adhere to the Creative Commons license and be cool…

Stay Tuned!

Remember at BarCampMilwaukee4 when I took your photo? Well, I still need to edit all the shots, and I’ll be doing it at MilwaukeeDevHouse4 on Saturday, November 7th, 2009…

Oh yeah, you’re invited! MilwaukeeDevHouse is a hackathon-type event where we encourage you to come and work on something. Maybe some project you’ve had on the back burner for a while… maybe you need to upgrade your WordPress blog, test out some new Drupal modules, work on a Joomla theme, build a robot, or… edit 80+ photos. Hopefully I can also work on “The Faces of BarCamp” project as well…

Think of MilwaukeeDevHouse as a party where you can get some work done, but don’t have to. You can just hang out, socialize, and eat & drink if you like… it’s like a social network, but in real life. (You’re not limited to 140 characters, unless you want to be.) It’s a chance to learn something new and meet some new people. It’s full of “newness” or something!

Our pals at Bucketworks and Insomniac Development LLC will provide snacks and libations, and we thank them for that.

(P.S. I’ve been told this is a “pants optional” event, but I’m not sure what that means. Also, Time Lapse Bot will be there. Are these two things related!?!?)

Yup, yeah, that’s right… It’s time for another DevHouse.

MilwaukeeDevHouse4 that is!

Back in 2008 we managed to throw 3 DevHouses, but we slacked in 2009, and this is the first of the year, but 4th in total. Math is hard.

Yup, yeah, that’s right… It’s time for another DevHouse.

So what is this MilwaukeeDevHouse thing? Well, I made a presentation before the first one, and it’s here, but if you hate pictures…

MilwaukeeDevHouse is relaxed, party-like atmosphere to hang out with friends (or make new ones!) and get things done… You know, that blog you’ve always been meaning to redesign, those photos you’ve been meaning to retouch, that Firefox extension or Drupal module that’s been sitting undone for 6 months. It’s like an all-night co-working session. At a house. Where a party is going on. Yup. Think of it like the late-night part of BarCamp where there aren’t sessions, but anything goes and people stare at computers all night long, hacking on who knows what.

Our good pals at Bucketworks are helping us sponsor this event, so a big thanks goes out to them.

Details? Yeah, we got ‘em… over at Web414.
