Tomorrow I will be attending the Hockey Analytics Conference that is being hosted by RIT’s College of Science. I will not be presenting, but I am willing to discuss my college hockey Elo ratings with anyone who is interested.
Tomorrow I will be attending The Failure Sessions tomorrow night in downtown Rochester. The event is being run by Digital Rochester and will feature two CTOs who will discuss provide a post mortem on some of their previous projects. If you are in the area, I would love to see you there.
The Rochester Tech Startup Expo is tomorrow afternoon at the City Grill. I will be attending, and am looking forwards to an eventful day. I can’t wait to see you there.
Tomorrow I will be attending TEDxFlourCity in downtown Rochester. This will be the first TED event that I have attended so I am unsure of what to expect, but I am looking forwards to it. Should you see me there know that I would be happy to talk.
Tomorrow, BarCamp Rochester will be returning to the RIT campus. While I have not been able to make it to one of these events since 2013, the events are always fun and full of interesting ideas. I don’t currently have a plan to present tomorrow, but I have previously presented on the international ascpects of selling mobile applications. As always, if you see me don’t hesitate to stop and chat.
Startup Weekend is coming back to Rochester tomorrow with a focus on education. Details and registration can be found at rochester.startupweekend.org.
It has been two years since I last attended a Startup Weekend event, so I am looking forwards to getting back into it. I hope to see you there.
Tomorrow the Nickel City Ruby conference starts in Buffalo, and I will be among those attending.
I am not a huge expert in Ruby, but I attended the event last year and found that the majority of the talks are actually non-technical and more about the industry of developing software than specifically about ruby.
I hope to see you there.
Tomorrow marks yet another return of BarCamp Rochester to the RIT campus. At previous BarCamps I have given talks on the internationalization of the app selling business, and the surprisingly low amount of danger that would come with the zombie apocalypse. I think I will take a pass on presenting this time around, but if you see me don’t hesitate to stop and chat. I would be more than happy to take some time to talk.
My presentation from BlackBerry Live 2013 is embedded below.
In addition to myself, this presentation also includes support from Brian Scheirer and Suavek Zajac. The slides for this presentation are available from ebscer.com/BlackBerryLive2013.pptx
My presentation from BlackBerry World in 2012 is embedded below.
At this point, the video is over a year and a half old, so some of the information is a little bit dated, but for the most part the talk discusses the importance of continuing to support and promote your app after launch and so this talk applies as much today as it ever has.

The Nickel City Ruby conference starts tomorrow in Buffalo, and I will be one of those in attendance. If you see me, feel free to say hi.
This is a bit of an interesting conference for me to attend as I actually do not know any Ruby and have never used it. Still, a cheap tech conference in my hometown was just too good of an opportunity to pass up. At the very least there is a good chance that I come out of the conference having learned something new…
Last week while in Orlando I had the opportunity to talk with Adam from CrackBerry. We talk about my history of writing BlackBerry apps, some of the new announcements made at the event, and I show off my Starbeams game.
I am presenting session JAM42 today with Brian Scheirer today at 1pm. The topic of our talk is on creating games in Cascades, where we will shows off some of the details (and code!) for a game we have created especially for this event, as well as talk about our experiences creating games like Pixelated, Visual Connection, and Starbeams.
