Presenting at the Rocky Mountain Tech Trifecta

I was invited to come and present at the Rocky Mountain Tech Trifecta in Denver, Colorado. It was the first time I'd been asked to present in a location not in Southern California and I was pretty jazzed about it. I've been working on a project mashing up a bunch of different technologies to generate Office 2007 format documents on a server and have built a pretty nifty presentation around that.

Things were going well, I had practiced and prepared, but then my laptop decided it DID NOT want to connect to the projectors provided. Well, not to be stopped by a silly little thing called technology, I looked around, saw this funky looking document projector thingy on the desk, tossed by laptop under it and away I went. Talk about an icebreaker. There was lots of applause and really great feedback. One attendee even took these pictures.

Here is my slide deck as well, Creating Personalized Documents with a Mashup of Technologies (and some other nifty stuff)

Thanks to Julie Yack for having me. And to Emily Parker and Sasha Krsmanovic at Telerik for sending me.

Time to figure out this projector issue.

About the author

James James is a five time and current Microsoft MVP in Client App Development, a Telerik Insider, a past Director on the INETA North America Board, a husband and dad, and has been developing software since the early days of Laser Discs and HyperCard stacks. As the Founder and President of the Inland Empire .NET User's Group, he has fondly watched it grow from a twice-a-month, early Saturday morning group of five in 2003, to a robust and rambunctious gathering of all types and sizes of .NET developers.

James loves to dig deep into the latest cutting edge technologies - sometimes with spectacular disasters - and spread the word about the latest and greatest bits, getting people excited about developing web sites and applications on the .NET platform, and using the best tools for the job. He tries to blog as often as he can, but usually gets distracted by EF, LINQ, MVC, ASP, SQL, XML, and most other types of acronyms. To keep calm James plays a mean Djembe and tries to practice his violin. You can follow him on twitter at @latringo.

And as usual, the comments, suggestions, writings and rants are my own, and really shouldn't reflect the opinions of my employer. That is, unless it really does.
