⇾ No beyond tellerrand in Munich in January

| | permalink

I have already stated in my Munich Wrap-Up from last January, that it is likely that this year no beyond tellerrand in Munich in 2019. Well, I have really enjoyed organising and running Munich’s edition a lot and I will definitely be back, but as you can see from the announcement of Düsseldorf and the ticket sales for Düsseldorf starting next Monday, there won’t be a January(!) edition.

⇾ Preparing a Conference Talk – Jeremy Keith

| | permalink

Jeremy Keith is speaking so much, I can easily say he is one of the old rabbits (hehehe … in Germany we say someone “Ein alter Hase”, if he is around for a long time – I think “to be an old hand” is the English term for it) is in the event landscape and he is one of the people you are able to learn a lot from.

In this post Jeremy shares how he starts to prepare a new talk and I found many similarities to how I start doing this. Mostly starting on paper is what I also do and what helps me to sort the many loose ideas and sketches I have in my head. Therefore, I can recommend reading his post, even if you are used to speaking at events. You never know if changing your habits and trying something new is leading to a different experience when preparing a presentation.

⇾ IFTTT Workflow with Instagram and Kirby

A few days back I asked my friend Brendan Dawes via a DM on Twitter, how he publishes his Instagram pictures to his blog. He said:

(A) combo of ifttt and a script I’ve written. I can feel a blog post coming on…

Now he has written this post and explains how he uses IFTTT and a webhook to post from Instagram to his own blog. You can easily take his example and adapt this to many other services. Thanks Bren for writing this.
