Pudge says hard work, not PEDs, led to Cooperstown

By Larry Fine NEW YORK (Reuters) - Ivan Rodriguez, the second catcher ever elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility, said on Thursday hard work, not steroids, carried him to the Cooperstown, New York, shrine.

When pressed at a news conference in New York marking Wednesday's election of Rodriguez, Jeff Bagwell and Tim Raines to the Hall of Fame, on whether he used performance-enhancing drugs, the 45-year-old Puerto Rican said: "No I didn't.

Brutal workout injuries highlight US college football flaws

The hospitalization of three US college American football players after a grueling workout has exposed failings in safety standards at university athletic programs, experts say. Three members of the University of Oregon's football team were left in hospital last week following the punishing fitness session, which was described in media reports as military-style training that had included one hour of continuous push-ups. At least one of the three, lineman Sam Poutasi, was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis, a potentially deadly condition which occurs when broken down muscle tissue leaks into the blood stream.

The resolution of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act case follows Las Vegas Sands' related $9 million civil settlement last year with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission over its dealings with the consultant.

AJI Report #19 | Scott K Davis and his son Tommy on Gamification and Programming for Kids

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/jjulian/archive/2012/11/13/aji-report-19--scott-k-davis-and-his-son.aspx

We are very excited about this show. John and Jeff sat down with Scott Davis and his son Tommy to talk about Gamification and Programming for Kids. Tommy is nine years old and the Iowa Code Camp was his second time presenting. Scott and Tommy introduce a package called Scratch that was developed by MIT to teach kids about logic and interacting with programming using sprites. Tommy's favorite experience with programming right now is Lego Mindstorms because of the interaction with the Legos and the development. Most adults when they get started with development also got started with interacting more with the physical machines. The next generation is given amazing tools, but the tools tend to be sealed and the physical interaction is not there. With some of these alternative hobby platforms like Legos, Arduino, and .NET Micro Framework, kids can write some amazing application and see their code work with physical movement and interaction with devices and sensors.

In the second half of this podcast, Scott talks about how companies can us Gamification to prompt employees to interact with software and processes in the organization. We see gamification throughout the consumer space and you need to do is open up the majority of the apps on our phones or tablets and there is some interaction point to give the user a reward for using the tool. Scott gets into his product Qonqr which is described as the board game Risk and Foursquare together. Scott gets into the different mindsets of gamers (Bartle Index) and how you can use these mindsets to get the most out of your team through gamification techniques.

Patrick Delancy, the first person we interviewed on the AJI Report, is joining us again for Episode 18. This time around Patrick explains what Code Smells and Anti-patterns are and how developers can learn from these issues in their code. Patrick takes the approach of addressing your code in his presentations instead of pointing fingers at others. We spend a lot of time talking about how to address a developer with bad practices in place that would show up on the radar as a Code Smell or Anti-Pattern without making them feel inferior. Patrick also list out a few open-source frameworks that use good patterns and practices as well as how he continues his education through interacting with other developers.

Do You Have the Courage to Take on Video Marketing in 2016?

Update - Tons of great examples of video marketing on our podcast

When I was in middle school, Justin Hall, one of my best friends and I would sit down and write small skits that we would film with a home video camera my parents had.  We developed skits that would mimic different SNL segments. One of the most memorable was my version of Mike Meyer’s Simon character and I would come up with brand new ideas of own.  Our mutual favorite was the Attack of the Killer Bunnies where we used several figurines my mom had of bunnies to fight and it even had a theme song.  (Hey, maybe that is why I like The Goldberg's so much!)

We would edit straight on the camera: record, review, rewind, and record on top until it was perfect.  Then with our finished product, we would take it to school and show our class.  Seriously!  Two kids, without fear, showing our production to a whole bunch of other kids.  Incredible times when I think back to it.

Over time, the videos stopped because, well you know, girls and stuff.  It is amazing that it would take me nearly 20 years to get back to the point where I enjoy being in front of the camera and telling stories with the medium.  Why the return to video? Because that’s probably what your audience is looking for.

I am a Developer Turned Marketer

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/jjulian/archive/2015/05/17/i-am-a-developer-turned-marketer.aspx

Hello everyone! I hope you have been doing well.

Over the past few years since Matt and his amazing team has taken over Geekwithblogs.net, I have had a few changes in my day-to-day activities. About one year ago, I hung up my responsibilities as the lead developer of AJi Software and started to lead the marketing initiatives. Now as Chief Marketing Officer, my days are spent working on content and reaching new audiences.

The years of work on Geekswithblogs from a platform marketing role gave me tons of experience that aligned with modern digital marketing tactics like Content Marketing. Content Marketing is a term that all developers should come to know if you work on public-facing sites for your company. It is an approach that is aligned with the heart of Geekswithblogs, provide amazing content to educate or entertain an audience on a consistent basis. This community has done this for over 11 years and I am proud to be a part of it. Companies that embrace Content Marketing provide platforms for their customers, influencers, and prospects to educate and entertain.

What have I been writing about

Most of my blog posts for the past 6 months have been about Agile Marketing. We all have seen the benefits of the agile processes in our software projects, but most other departments are a little late to the game. As part of a book I am working on, I broke all the content into concept to fit into blog posts and placed them into a backlog. Each week, I plan a sprint to produce the content for AJi and that includes primary blog posts, guest posting, podcasts, web page content, and graphics. The process works amazingly and I can’t wait to finish the book and share it with you all.

What have I been speaking about

Mostly I talk about the same topics: content marketing, content strategy, SEO, and agile marketing. In years past, I would travel around the US and speak at developer conferences, .NET user groups, and corporate IT departments. Now I present at marketing conferences, associations like DMA or AMA, and corporate Marketing departments. It has been a dramatic shift to rebuilding my voice as a marketing contributor, rather than someone in software, but I have enjoyed the process.

Midwest Marketing Show

Six months ago, I launched a new podcast aimed to show the world some of the cool marketing that is going on in the Midwest. We have had some amazing guest on the show and the format is very similar to that of the original Podcast Studio we did with Geekswithblogs.net. If you are interested in marketing, check out some of our shows.

Sitecore Experience Marketing Platform

At AJi, over the past three years we have invested a lot in our Sitecore practice. We absolutely love the platform and our developers can solve problems faster and work on some amazing websites. I spent my last years developing on this platform, but I didn’t offer a lot back to the community.

This has to be one of my biggest regrets. My plan (and you know how those work out), is to transform this blog into my home for Sitecore content for developers and the occasional tech-savvy marketers. This has always been my favorite developer community (biased I know) and I can’t wait to be a community member again. I will also provide some tips on creating content for your blog and how to develop a cadence that is sustainable and audience building. I love helping bloggers build their brand.

Check out our page on the Sitecore Experience Platform for more details on the CMS.
