Mobile App Development and Web Technology Focus of BarCamp Harrisburg

BarCamp Harrisburg 3, an ad-hoc ‘unconference’ focused on web technology and mobile application development, is coming to Harrisburg University of Science and Technology on April 9, 2011.

Harrisburg, PA, March 30, 2011 -- BarCamp Harrisburg 3, an ad-hoc ‘unconference’ focused on web technology and mobile application development, is coming to Harrisburg University of Science and Technology on April 9, 2011.

The free event is known as an "unconference" because it is filled with open, participatory events, discussions, and workshops where presentation content is provided by the participants rather than chosen speakers. The annual event draws web developers, cloud computing experts, educators, elearning experts, application developers and software engineers.

Entry is free but limited to the first 150 signups. The topics for this year’s BarCamp Harrisburg will be the Web with tracks on education and technology, and mobile apps.

Attendees arrive around 9-10 am, have breakfast, network, and post topics they would like to discuss on a schedule board (we’ll have markers and a whiteboard available to post topics). Following a brief kick-off meeting with the entire group, the day will consist of sessions broken down into 45-minute blocks. Sessions can be discussions, workshops, or presentation-it’s up to you! There will be a break for lunch, followed by afternoon sessions that will run until around 5 pm.

BarCamp Harrisburg 3 is organized by Hauck Interactive and Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. Sponsors include Fusionized Technology, Central PA ISSA, QUE® and Mudbrick Creative.

7 Tips to Preventing Possible Plumbing Disasters at Home!

Prevention is better than cure, so the old saying goes, and it’s no truer than when you prevent a possible plumbing disaster. And according to the Brisbane Plumber, every homeowner should know how to minimize the risks of damage to their plumbing system.

Sinnamon Park, QLD, March 31, 2011 - In order to prevent or reduce the likelihood of a plumbing disaster, Paul Wright, head of the Brisbane Plumber, offers the residents of Brisbane the following plumbing disaster mitigation tips:

* The first step to avoiding plumbing emergencies is to periodically check your plumbing system, namely your sink, bathtub, shower, or other water sources for leaks. Regular checking of your plumbing system is important because it will let you discover breaches of the system that if not attended to could lead to serious problems later on. This does not only save you money that you’d be spending on major repairs later on, but it also saves you money in lowering your water bill, and of course the inconvenience of not having your regular water supply. You don’t necessarily have to check your system every day, once or twice a month will do it just fine.

* Secondly, you need to pay close attention to the kitchen sinks, bathtubs, and showers. These are potential hotspots. In other words, they experience more wear and tear than other rarely used water systems in the home. However, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t periodically check those areas that you don’t use regularly.

* Thirdly, make sure your drains aren’t clogged. To avoid clogged drains, you have to know the likely causes. Therefore, I advise you try avoiding hair, grease, or other debris from going into the drain. Hair or threads usually get stuck in the pipes thus prevent water from freely flowing through. Grease does the same thing. To prevent hair from getting into your drainage system, installing a drain screen is a good idea. Although most drains have a built in system that cuts and grinds leftover food, you should still try to avoid food debris getting into the drain.

* Fourthly, you need to check for leaks by closely observing the areas where the pipes are installed or joined. For instance, if you can see moisture on your wall, even though the weather is dry, or if you can find water slowly dripping from the ceiling of your basement, it is a possible sign there’s a leak somewhere in your pipe system. This would need your immediate attention if you are to ward off more serious damage later on.

Now, what if after you have carried out your preventative measures, you still find yourself facing an emergency with your plumbing system? "The first thing to do is to find the right solution to your problem. If you have knowledge about fixing taps or pipes, you should try to repair the damage yourself first before calling a plumber," owner Paul Wright, who recommends you consider the following additional steps to preventing a major plumbing disasters:

* Determine the kind of damage you have. A professional plumber usually offer different services and you have to know the kind of help that you need. Examples of common plumbing emergencies are clogged drains and toilets, blocked gutters, leaks, storm water issues, and so on. Knowing the kind of service that you need makes it easier for you to find the right plumbing professional.

* If water is continuously coming out of the pipe or faucet, try to do something about it immediately, such as preventing the continuous flow of water by turning off the main water switch because you might get a Brisbane Plumber immediately. You might have to wait a few hours before a plumber gets to you.

* Finally, it is always important to have a list of plumbers you can readily call upon even before you need their services. But if you fail to do your research, you can just browse through the yellow pages of your phone directory or ask your friends or neighbors if they know a reputable plumber.

"The above are some important things, tips, information, and considerations that you need to know about your Brisbane-based plumber that will help you in the future in case you have an emergency with your water system. Besides, you don’t need to wait for an emergency to happen before you start learning about how to take care of minor plumbing issues," said Paul Wright
