Written by Jim DeLaHunt   
Tuesday, 27 January 2015
As a project of the new Vancouver Globalization and Localization Users Group (VanGLUG), Emre Akkaş (of GlobalMe) and I teamed up to give a presentation to VanDev, the Vancouver Developers Network. 
 
Title: 6 Essentials Every Developer Should Know About "International"
When: Tuesday, 27. January 2015, 18:45h
Where: UBC Robson Square, room 550. Vancouver, Canada
 
[Update, 1. May 2015]  I was later invited to give an updated version of the presentation to CodeCore Community Week, as part of a lunch'n'learn series hosted by this local software trainer. I presented solo this time.
 
Title: Essentials Every Developer Should Know About "International"
When: Friday, 1. May 2015, 12:00-13:00h
Where: CodeCore's head office, 142 W Hastings St., Vancouver, Canada

The slides are available here, in a couple of formats. They are licenced CC-BY-SA 3.0. If you are interested in this material, I am available to give the talk to other audiences. Or, you can present from the slides yourself. If you improve the presentation, I'd appreciate your sharing the improvements back with me.
 
Slides for 6 essentials every developer should know about “international” (PDF file, 25 pages, 0.4MB) This is the May 1 2015 version, slightly revised from what we presented in January 2015 to VanDev. Also, I left out the example images; the author of the images wasn't comfortable having those images distributed  across the searchable web.
 
Slides for 6 essentials every developer should know about “international” (OpenOffice.org ODP file, 25 pages, 0.2MB) Matches the PDF files.
 
I will be presenting a 4-hour workshop version of this talk, with more detail throughout and featuring fun programming excercises, to the Polyglot Unconference Workshops on May 22, 2015 in Vancouver.

Canada Post and USPS postage rate quick reference card
Written by Jim DeLaHunt   
Wednesday, 01 May 2013
This handy sheet gives the current Canada Post and USPS postage rates for basic letters between the USA and Canada. I've exported the spreadsheet as an easily printable PDF file. Print it out for a handy quick reference card, which you can keep next to your stamps or your postage scale. You can also modify the source spreadsheet. Both source and PDF edition are licensed CC-BY-SA.
 
n.b. January 2012: I have not yet revised this sheet to reflect the Canada Post rate increases effective 16 January, 2012 or the USPS rate increases effective 22 January, 2012 . The update is in my work queue, but I haven't got to it yet.
Update April 2011: reflects USPS rate increases effective 17 April, 2011.
Update January 2011: reflects Canada Post rate increases effective 17 January, 2011.
