CodeMash 2008 presentation

Well, it's over. I gave my presentation at the AWH annual kickoff meeting. It went reasonably well (I think). Of the limited feedback I received, it was mostly positive. I'll take what I can get. :-)

Here are the slides for the presentation: <a href='/files/CodeMash2008.ppt' target='_blank'>CodeMash2008.ppt

I tried to mix in some humor, so as you read the slides you may find references to subjects that are not familiar to everyone (like "Radar" from M.A.S.H.). Hopefully the jokes are clear.

CodeMash 2008

CodeMash is a conference that brings many diverse technologies together in one event. It emphasizes exposure to things you might not normally use in your day job, so you can expand your mind.

The first CodeMash was held in 2007. The location for the event has been the Kalahari Resort, located in Sandusky, Ohio.

CodeMash 2008 was held January 10th-11th, and featured several notable speakers, including:

CodeMash 2008 post-conference presentation

My company (AWH) graciously paid for me to attend CodeMash 2008 held January 9th-11th at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio. One of the "conditions" of the trip is that I must present something I learned at the upcoming annual kickoff meeting. As I am an introvert by nature, this represents a big opportunity to get out of my comfort zone.

CodeMash was mostly exciting, so I should have something to talk about. The trick is how to be insightful and informative in a short amount of time without boring the audience.

I'm considering using this site as a place to post the presentation materials I develop. AWH also has a company blog/forum ( that I'll probably post info to as well.

Look for it soon.
