DDD6 – Micro-blogging via Twitter and eventtrack

I’m not sure how successful this is going to be, but I have great faith in the power of Twitter!

Via Chris Dalby [blog], I’m pleased to have discovered http://twitter.com/eventtrack

How does this work? Well, if you’re at DDD6 and have a suitably featured mobile device, you can Twitter live whilst in sessions (remembering of course to have your device on vibrate or silent!) Others who are following the eventtrack feed for DDD6 will be able to read your comments, etc. And if you’re not able to attend DDD6, hopefully the eventtrack feed for DDD6 will give you a near live feed of what you’re missing!

If anyone wants to join the conversation, follow the steps below:

1. On Twitter, follow the user eventtrack

2. At the start of the event, tweet @eventtrack start*DDD6

3. Start twittering like normal, everything you Twitter from now on will be grouped into the DDD6 event

4. After the event you can send a tweet @eventtrack stop*DDD6

5. Now the system will no longer pay attention to you

Simple and easy and for those of you not attending or those that are you’ll be able to follow the collective conversation via here:


This is the first time we’ve tried something like this, so please do try and make use of it! Thanks!

Of course, it does assume that you’re signed up for Twitter! Find me here: http://twitter.com/CAMURPHY, and find DDD here: http://twitter.com/developerday
