A change of seasons
Bruce Elgort    

Starting on January 7th, 2012 and going through June, 2012 I will be an instructor in the Computer Technology program at Vancouver’s Clark College. The four classes are:

Winter 2013 Quarter

  • Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving (CTEC 121)
  • HTML Essentials (CTEC 122 – two classes)
  • Introduction to PHP (CTEC 127)

Spring 2013 Quarter

  • Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving (CTEC 121)
  • HTML Essentials (CTEC 122 – two classes)
  • Advanced PHP (CTEC 127)

Teaching is something that I have always been interested in doing career-wise and, this opportunity provides me with an opportunity to give it a try. Over the last couple of weeks I have been guest lecturing and so far so good. The students are amazing and it’s a huge departure from the “enterprise” world that I came from. They offer a totally different perspective that I am welcoming with open arms.

At Elguji we are hard at work on IdeaJam 2.0 which is going to be a groundbreaking release. We have learned a lot about running a micro-ISV both in the on-premises world and the world of cloud computing. There are some amazing things you will be seeing from Elguji in 2013. We recently launched V1.3 of our popular IQJam product.

I will be at Connect 2013 with Gayle and will be delivering three sessions:

  • Apps, Apps, and More Apps: Meet the Very Best Open Source Apps from OpenNTF (with Niklas Heidloff)
  • Meet the Java Application Server You Already Own – Domino (with Serdar Basegmez)
  • How We Built CollaborationToday.info in a Matter of Weeks (with Per Henrik Lausten)

2013 is shaping up to be another amazing year and I would like to thank Gayle, my family and friends for their support.

Chris Lema: Getting the first two minutes of your talk right
Tue, Jul 15th 2014 7:59p   Bruce Elgort
As with anything, writing or speaking is something you get better at over time. The more you do it, the calmer you get, the more muscle memory you have, and ultimately, the faster you can get things done. But when it comes to speaking, I notice that there are people who’ve been speaking for years and they continue to make a classic mistake every time they start a talk. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not a horrible mistake. But it’s done so often, by so many people, that it’s easy to not t [read] Keywords: twitter

Veteran Blogger Brill Picked to Lead IBM’s Social Business Transformation
Mon, Jul 7th 2014 6:12p   Bruce Elgort
In his 2013 book, Opting In, Ed Brill recalls the time he was reprimanded by IBM corporate communications in 2003 for identifying an employee by name in a blog post. “We don’t have celebrities at IBM,” the PR rep told him. How times have changed. Brill’s elevation last month to the corporate role of Vice President of Social Business Transformation shows how far IBM has come in shedding its old blue-suite image in favor of one that applauds individuality. Brill and his team will tackle t [read] Keywords: ibm lotus blogger blogging facebook
