PocketMod Template

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.

I've been using pocketmods for some time now and find these to be pretty useful. I've designed an editable template in DOC format which lasts me around a week. You might want to follow the link to my blog for the template.
