Way back in January at the Dayton-Cincinnati Code Camp we handed out PocketMod sheets as schedules for the Camp. Most folks loved ‘em, although we should have given each person a quick rundown on how the dang things work: “No, don’t unfold them. Just put them in your pocket and look at them like a book.” Oh well, lesson learned.
In any case, John Hopkins, one of the smart folks behind the Day of .NET in Ann Arbor next weekend, pinged me to ask how I did the PocketMod thing. It’s really simple. First, grab the template I created and change that to meet your needs. Next, print that file as a PDF. (Use PDFCreator if you need a PDF printer.) Finally go grab the PDF to PocketMod converter and feed your PDF through it.
Note to event organizers: Get a gaggle of folks together for a folding party if you’re printing off scads of these. I printed out 200 for the Code Camp and folded something like 100 myself. I got to the point where I was doing one every 40 seconds, but that’s still a helluva lot of folding for one person!
Second note to event organizers running a PocketMod folding party: hold off the adult beverages until after the folding is done.
