Last week at MWLUG in Austin I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to speak for the first time at a conference. I was very happy with the turnout for my session as well as the positive feedback from the content. I even got a thank you at the airport on the way out of town. (thanks, Tom!).
The slides are available here:
During the session there were some very good questions, which made me realize I probably need to clarify some things in my presentation and fill in some gaps. Over the next few weeks/months I plan on doing that, as well as expanding on some of the topics I covered.
From the conference as a whole, I took away some great information and hope to start utilizing it immediately. The tone of the conference was clear – CYA by looking at non-Domino options. I should note here that the concepts I covered in my session apply to any environment where data is being delivered via REST, not just Domino/XPages.
From a personal standpoint, I need to get better at meeting more people at conferences like these. It isn’t a strength, but needs to become one. I did have some great conversations and was able to do a little brainstorming with Red Pill about their graph implementation. I am really, really intrigued by the possibilities that provides.
Finally, thank you to Richard Moy and the team that made MWLUG a great success. Can’t wait until next year.
