I know that it’s cliche to say, but this year is flying by! I can’t believe that next week I’ll be traveling to San Jose to participate in ATDTK. This will be my first TK, and I’m super excited to explore the new format. I’ll be speaking and doing a bunch of other events, so below I’ll outline a few places where you can find me. You will also likely find me catching many of the amazing keynotes and sessions, so if you see me in passing, make sure to say hi! If you aren’t attending, be sure to keep tabs on the blog, because I’ll be posting daily recaps!
7:00am – 7:45am
Are you an early bird? Will time travel have you waking up at 1, 2, 3am? I’ll be right there with you, so come have coffee and chat with me! I’ll be facilitating a coffee chat in LL21A.
4:15pm – 5:00pm
I have spent many years of my life freelancing in many different combinations of my professional life – as a full-time student and full-time employee, as a full-time employee and full-time freelancer, as a full-time employee at two jobs and as a part-time freelancer (THAT was a lot), and as a full-time employee and part-time freelancer.
I have learned a lot of things, and within my session, Be Free, Lance, on the Advance Stage in the Playground, I’m hoping to bring you all of my tips, tricks, and recommendations. Should you follow them? Who knows. Will I have something for everyone? I’m sure that I will. For me, freelancing has been a definite ride, and as I’ve grown professionally, I’ve learned that freelancing has served different purposes for me at different stages in my life. I’m excited to share all the highs and lows with you!
8:15am – 8:45am
There are a handful of us doing author meet and greets at this time slot in Hall 1 Concourse. If you’ve ever been interested in getting your books signed, asking questions, or just saying hello, make sure you swing by. You’ll get to meet me and several of my very favourite people (Tim Slade, Hadiya Nurridin, and Karl Kap)!
3:30pm – 5:30pm
Come join me for a two-hour hands on learning session, Improving UI With a Customized Learning Experience in Articulate Storyline 360, in 211D. I’m super excited for this session! I’ll be walking participants through a custom player, how to program the player, and how to program interface elements. I will also be providing tips for where to find free (or affordable) UI elements. If you’ve attended the pre-conference certificate workshop on Articulate Storyline, this session will surely allow you to apply many of the basic concepts you’ve learned while moving you closer to pushing the limits of Articulate Storyline, and re-conceptualizing what a Storyline player needs to look like…plus, there will be cats!
8:00am – 10:00am
If the create-a-cool-player-and-hang-out-with-space-cats session sounded rad (and it will be!), but you had a competing session to attend on the 6th, I’ll be doing an encore of Improving UI With a customized Learning Experience in Articulate Storyline 360, in 211D.
Again, I’m super excited to check out ATDTK, to facilitate some sessions, to experience the new format, and to meet tons of new pals! I’ll see you there (or here on the recaps)!
