DevLearn 2010
Walkabout
Brought to
you by
We’ve promised via Twitter
and Facebook posts, as well
as by email and in person, to
bring back some impressions
of DevLea...
For 2010, DevLearn was
hosted by the lively city of
San Francisco.
Remember to let them
know half-a-block
before you want off!
San Francisco was alive
with a sense of
expectation and
anticipation during the
preconference days of
DevLearn.
DevLearn seems to have brought luck to San
Francisco…helping to break the curse and
ending the "torture" for Giants fans. ...
One vendor reacted with a turn-on-the
dime response, ordering mini-baseball
bats to commemorate the win.
And everyone logged long hours prior to the
event updating collateral. Dedicated employees
at enspark put a different twis...
With dry eyes from little
sleep, travel, and arid
air, some of us could
relate to this sight:
There was
everything
from the
prickly…
To the
inevitable cute
and cuddly…
Nesting Russian dolls
(or “matryoshkas”)
Mad scientists
And squeezable brains to
reduce stress.
For newbies to eLearning, there
was some new vocabulary to be
picked up. Hebbian Learning,
anyone?
Smart vendors are not above offering a bit
of a sweetener to the deal…candy is a
frequent booth decoration.
Gourmet tastes in
candy and zingy
colors.
One of the
best bribes…
Tradeshows are a great way to touch
base with people you know in the
industry…
Word/Visual plays are always
cool—This one you have to
say out-loud:
The good ole drop-a-card-in-the-
fishbowl is a staple of tradeshows:
Great graphics popped in
presentations:
And great presentations led to
lines of people meeting
presenters:
Checking email was a
popular activity:
Anywhere you could find a
place to plunk down ,
check-in, log-on was fine.
You found this presentation
through social media, no?
As you would
expect for a
learning
conference,
many books
were
available:
A favorite
read
jumped on
the book
display:
Good news for lefties…
This one is fun just to look at:
Despite all the high tech,
there was still room for
traditional communication
vehicles.
and more
Who can refuse Rice Krispies
treats?
Thanks,
eLearning Guild!
The Tweeting with hash tag #DL10
was hot and heavy, and
was part of the chatter.
With all this fun stuff, there will be
NO MORE boring e-Learning.
