Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to submit their presentations. With some help from Greg, Jay, and Leila we’ve been reviewing the submissions. Discussing the benefits, challenges, areas for improvement of each of the submissions. We’re starting to finalize a schedule for DemoCampToronto15 (link to barcamp.org page included because we’ll be using the EventBrite page for future DemoCamps). It looks like this is going to be another series of awesome presentations and demonstrations.
Someone, probably me, will contact each of the presenters. I’ll tell you the timing, the location, the A/V requirements.
Otherwise, remember to help us plan by registering

Java ME productization issues using a currency exchange calculator that downloads exchange rates. Appreciation of the 20-some issues that need to be solved to bring even the simplest mobile phone software to the market: installation using jad, configuration without config files, user authorization requirements, conversion of keys to digits, Java ME vs .NET tradeoff, etc. It works on practically any new cell phone and they can install/use it right there! Then they’ll use it during every trip abroad.
- Liang Song, OMESH Networks
The demo shows a prototype of opportunistic wireless mesh networks, which shows 1) the drop-and-play of mesh stations that can vastly save network planning/deployment costs; 2) the much better performance that can support voice and video services. The enabling technology is the large-scale cognitive network technology (patents pending), where network resources, including both spectrum bandwidth and radio availability, are opportunistically utilized to achieve reliable communications. The demo promises the commercialization opportunities in a number of applications, especially in current municipal WiFi mesh networks for broadband wireless Internet access.
- Shachin Ghelanil, Ogrant, Social Media for Financial Aid
Shachin will be showing Ogrant’s new interactive online grant service. Ogrant allows students to apply for school grants and scholarships using videos and images instead of essays, transcripts and reference letters. Essentially, a student interactive application can be reivewed and voted on by peers and ranked based on creativity, talent and intellectual ability. Shachin will share what they learned while developing a platform to transform an outdated industry (financial aid) and how their plans evolved as their development progressed.
- Will Pate, Conceptshare
A sneak preview of ConceptShare version 2. The entire web management interface has been re-engineered from the ground up introducing a simple, clean UI. This will be Conceptshare’s second appearance at DemoCamp and it will be great to see how far they have come since last year.
This is going to be awesome.
