MilwaukeeDevHouse, FTW?

MilwaukeeDevHouse, FTW? Presentation

I gave a presentation at Web414 last night about MilwaukeeDevHouse.

Because I am FAIL! at using office suites, I did the presentation in S5, and it’s called MilwaukeeDevHouse, FTW?

MilwaukeeDevHouse1 will be taking place Friday, March 14th, 2008 at Bucketworks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Get there around 7PM, stay until you fall over.

What will you do at MilwaukeeDevHouse1?

MilwaukeeDevHouse1 MilwaukeeDevHouse1 will take place March 14, 2008, and we hope to see you there.

Sure, we hope to combines serious and not-so-serious productivity with a fun and exciting party atmosphere, but what do you plan do when you are there?

SuperHappyDevHouse23 just took place, and here’s a few things people had on their TO DO list for it:

  • solar-powered Arduino
  • Hello World in Adobe Air
  • home automation web UI
  • trying to learn how to write a stored proc in Postgresql
  • reading about hotel software.
  • Working on a coupl’a Facebook apps
  • Working on a random heatmap overlay generator

I’ve already had one person say “I’ll bring nasty toxic chemicals to etch PC boards and make something” so already, we’re looking at something interesting happening. :)


MilwaukeeDevHouse is Go!

Following in the footsteps of those before us, mainly SuperHappyDevHouse, we are starting something new in Milwaukee, and it’s called (aptly enough) MilwaukeeDevHouse.

And there will be numbers. And they will be sequential. And MilwaukeeDevHouse1 will happen Friday, March 14th, 2008 at Bucketworks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We’ll start around 7PM and go until we pass out, we get kicked out, or we’re out of ideas.

MKEDH1 MilwaukeeDevHouse aims to be the premier regularly scheduled hackathon event that combines serious and not-so-serious productivity with a fun and exciting party atmosphere.

If you’re a coder, designer, or just someone who enjoys software and technology development, MilwaukeeDevHouse was made for you…

MilwaukeeDevHouse is intended for passionate and creative technical people that want to have some fun, learn new things, and meet new people.

There is a web site at with very little useful information, so visit the Web414 kids at node 170 and give them some love. Or check it at Upcoming or the Facebooks or even the Bucketworks new site (much of which runs Drupal, in fact, you should register while you are there.)

And if you’ve got an OpenID and agree or disagree with this statement: MilwaukeeDevHouse1 will take place March 14th, 2008, then say so…
