This lighthearted contest is focused on fun and spontaneity. Attendees will
learn of the guidelines the week before the conference. They will then have
until Tuesday evening to create something along the theme. Use of items
prepared prior to the competition is not allowed, unless these items are
available to everyone.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in this contest. Teams are equally good as
individuals. Even employees of Platte Canyon or
SumTotal Systems may participate, but they may only do so on an exhibition
basis (no awards or judging for them).
Judging is by audience applause and will occur immediately after all entries are
Hack Ack presentations will be interspersed with Karaoke/Rock Band performances
-- so showmanship may certainly rank high among the "judges."
How to Enter
Show up! There is no entry procedure. We will simply ask for anyone who wants
to present their Hack-Ack entry to sign up on a notepad at the beginning of the
Tuesday evening social.
Also, it will be up to each participant to arrange for a laptop to demo the
application on. We will have one or two machines if needed, but this should be
arranged ahead of time.
It's all about fun.
I just wanted to thank you, again, for a great conference. It was so nice to meet everyone and pick up new information and tips. I hope to go again next year!
I learned a couple of new ToolBook tricks and met some really nice folks.
My favorite part was all the helpful ideas that materialized when it became known I had a "code" problem.
Gorgeous location!! Not only beautiful, but seemed to be fairly central for the origins of the attendees.
TBCON was the best I have been to in several years. Cheers to Jeff, Chris, and all the Platte Canyon gang for a great conference.
The conference lived up to everything it was advertised to be and more. While the regular conference was great, I really enjoyed the pre conference. Those who did not attend the preconference really missed seeing you guys in action and what you have to share. I have already incorporated a couple of the things I learned at the conference.
