Once upon a time, webheads used to talk about “conference season”, but it seems that these days there’s always a conference running somewhere. Having dispensed with Web 2.0, we’re now turning our attention to XTech 2008, which takes place in Dublin, Ireland from Tuesday May 6th to Friday May 9th.
The Flickr team has two talks lined up for those attending XTech. Through a freak scheduling accident they’re back-to-back, giving attendees the exciting opportunity to experience one and a half straight hours of pure Flickr-related goodness:
- 11:00am, Thu May 8th, Goldsmiths 1, Kellan Elliott-McCrea talks about Advanced OAuth Wrangling
- 11:45am, Thu May 8th, Goldsmiths 2, Simon Batistoni (that’s me…) presents “Ni Hao, Monde: Connecting communities across cultural and linguistic boundaries”
Hopefully we’ll see some of you there!
Looking backwards for a moment, this is also a chance to re-post the slides from my previous internationalization-themed talk, “Taking Over the World, The Flickr Way” which I gave at South by Southwest in March. This hour-long session was a high-level overview of some of the challenges and solutions we stumbled upon during the internationalization and localization of Flickr.com which we undertook in the first half of 2007:
Versions of the slides in other formats (keynote, swf, pdf) are available here.
As for Web 2.0 Expo, some of the team’s presentations should be showing up here in the next week or so, starting with slides from the delectable John Allspaw.
