Auckland down, bring on Wellington
8 March 2007 in Events, Microsoft, Mindscape | Comments enabled

My Auckland presentations for the Microsoft 2007 Technical Briefing are over and I’m back in Wellington. Overall I thought the event was a resounding success, there were heaps of people buzzing about the new technologies and opportunities available. It was great meeting people that I only really see online as well as meeting some new people there as well.

I’ll be posting the slides, links and extra information for people to download shortly. I’ve decided to delay it slightly so I don’t ruin the surprises for Wellington & Christchurch attendees. Several of the topics covered, especially standards related, can be found in prior blog posts so if you’re interested have a search around :)

If you’d like me to notify you when I do post something (and you haven’t subscribed to my RSS feed) then send me an email at jd [at] mindscape.co.nz.  Incidentally we got our initial cut of the Mindscape website up while at the event (big ups to Andrew, the third person in our trio).

Thanks to everyone who attended, it was the largest audience I’ve spoken to so I was rather nervous but thankfully nobody threw fruit :)

Good times,

- JD

Uh, JD, if you’re going to make your website live, you must ensure it has correct grammar ;-)

Try change recognize to recognized, and “are are” to “are as” :)

Thanks for pointing that out Jessica (and Stuart who also contacted me). I’ll put an update up this morning :)

Ok, a couple more gripes :)

1) A few more errors on the About page…
2) Your layout doesn’t seem to flow nicely in my IE7…

The header, news box, and text in the footer all extend too far off the right.

Let me know when you’ve think you’ve fixed it all (or at the very least grammar, etc.), and I’ll have another look :)

Your nervousness didn’t show JD. You’re a natural and entertaining presenter. 10/10
Apart from the Expression Web session I was mostly out of my depth at the briefing, but you kept my attention anyway.

Thanks for the positive comments Alan, I’m glad that you found part of my session useful :)
