An un-conference is an open-format regional conference where everyone interested in the growth and development of their community is welcome to speak on any topic they are passionate about. Their motto is Share-Learn-Grow. Much like Tyler Durden's Fight Club, there are only 2 rules to the BarCamp UnConference: 1. You must want to help others learn what you know! 2. You are not here to sell or do a product presentation!


Tipglo - Let's build a better creative economy

Thu, 03/19/2015 - 06:12 -- rprice

What is Tipglo? Tipglo is a platform that allows you to communicate with people who and are difficult to reach. Authors, celebrities, video producers, experts, bloggers, journalists, musicians – use Tipglo to respond to their fans. If I have a question can’t I just send an email or a tweet? Yes, you can, but you may not receive a response. Some people receive dozens, if not hundreds, of messages each day. They can't respond to most of them. If you need a personal response, Tipglo is a way to cut through the clutter and get attention. When will my card be charged?

Instead of thinking and acting small, companies started acting big and big things happened. There were some strong players in the mix – like EPB, who made us "Gig City". Several strong companies, such as Lamp Post Group, The Company Lab and other non-profits, were working together to redefine our future. Mayor Berke launched Chattanooga Forward. From that, a wellspring of ideas flowed and even more organizations sprouted or reimagined themselves to create a vibrant network. So, to me, the biggest change has been in attitude and spirit – we were no longer "run-down."

In 2005, Chattanooga opened the Tennessee Aquarium right in the heart of downtown. Chattanooga is on the Tennessee River and the city started working hard to improve the waterfront. We went back to visit and found a couple of new restaurants open. We kept on going back to Chattanooga over the next few years, and every year was better. The city was cleaner, new hotels and attractions arrived, and we started hearing about new tech companies in the city. Then in 2010, Chattanooga got the fastest internet in the country with 1 Gig service available to everyone.

The fish and wildlife commission advises: To protect your pets, don’t allow them to roam freely.

The conceptual difference between Drupal, as embodied in Drupal 8, and other major PHP projects is vastly smaller than ever before, providing PHP coders two key advantages: it makes it easier for non-Drupal developers to learn Drupal and it makes it easier for Drupal developers to learn non-Drupal systems.
