Early Bird Registration for CSTA 2015


Did you know?

With the Computer Science Teachers Association’s annual conference coming up in July there are a few things we thought you should know now that we’ve sprung into spring:

– Online early-bird registration is ending on April 15, and it saves you $50

– There will be NO onsite registration for workshops, so if you are interested you must sign up online in advance

– Housing reservations close on: June 17

– The online registration deadline is drawing near: June 26

– We will be providing workshop and conference certificates for CEU’s (check with your state board for regulations/requirements)

The bottom line is, we don’t want you to put off registering any longer. This year is sure to be amazingly wonderful and memorable. Please come join us at DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center in Grapevine, Texas, July 12-14.

Time is running out, we only one week left for you to take advantage of our early bird pricing!!

One Less Add-on

I really like things that simply life for me and a recent addition to Firefox has done it for me.  And…maybe it make the browser run just a bit faster in the process.

One of the first things that I add to any browser is an add-on to share the story in the current window. 

With the addition, there’s now one less thing to do.  The magic is behind this little button.

Behind the scenes, it hooks into a number of places where you might want to share the current page…

And, of course, down the list to…

…where I already have a number of things in place with each Twitter message.

Once configured, the use of the sharing button is immediate.  Just visit a web resource to be shared and click the button.

Choose your destination and away it goes.

The clickable link, as opposed to the screen capture above is here:  http://www.wired.com/2015/03/gifs-show-constellations-transforming-150000-years/

It’s a small thing, but if it makes things a little quicker and smoother for me, I’m all in!
