So not long ago I presented at the Fall 2007 Twin Cities Code Camp about NBusiness. It was a great experience and really forced me to crystalize a lot of the thoughts I had been coming up with while working on NBusiness. I tried to put in a half and half dose of theory and code. In the end I had more questions than I could really answer in the hour and a half time span we had available. Which is good! I also had a few really interesting questions that really got me thinking about some necessary capabilities for the next version, namely Entity Models and data hiding.
I’ve uploaded the slide deck from the presentation for anyone who’s interested in seeing it. I realize it’s hard to fully grasp of the meaning of a slide without the corresponding talk but, who knows, maybe you’ll find it interesting anyway. I just got my evaluations and I’ll post the results here.
|Quality||Ideas and information||Presenter Abilities||Relevant||Average||Comments|
|4||4||5||3||4.333333||very impressed. this guy is great.|
|5||5||5||5||5||Nice job Justin…|
|5||5||5||5||5||Justin did really well for his first presentation…and he really knows his topic because he was ready with answers to nearly every question that came up.|
So I’ll take this as pretty positive results. If anyone has a need for a presenter on NBusiness you know how to call! I wonder if I should do another presentation at the next code camp? Depends on how much I get done on the next version I suppose. I’m guessing I’ll be right in the middle of some big changes at that time so maybe I’ll defer to the next code camp.
Speaking of which, there is a conference in Redmond at the end of January I am thinking about attending. The conference is called the 2008 Lang.NET Symposium and is all about the creation of .NET languages, compilers and development tools. I really can’t imagine a more perfect conference for me to attend! I’m still trying to figure out the cost of this but if it’s at all feasible then I will definitely go. I would love to learn some things and get a chance to talk to some other people who are interested in the same things.
