OpenForce07 Wednesday, the time has come and gone, My Session

I'm currently sitting in Nik Kalyani's session "DotNetNuke Beyond the Browser". He's looking at Vista Gadgets and it looks like he's looking at using gadgets within DNN and other apps as well. I'll try to pay attention to his presentation a bit but right now I want to brain dump from my session I just finished up.

I presented "DotNetNuke Portal Administration Best Practices" or something titled similiarly! I was suprised at how many people showed up to the presentation, I was too busy yapping to get a count, but Rich seems to think there was nearly 150 or more there, which is by far the largest group I've ever presente to! I didn't see one pair of eyes closed asleep the whole time either!

I had to have Rich up there clicking through on the laptop as spoke, my laptop seems to have issues and will only do split screen with dual displays, rather than showing the same information on two different screens so I used the opportunity to move around on the presentation floor a bit and Rich handled the slides.

The presentation went very well, and I had quite a few people come up to me and tell me it was great, that sure makes a speaker feel good. There were quite a few questions throughout the presentation, which I usually frown upon and try to have handled at the end. The OpenForce attendees however are a different breed than most of the presentations I've given. Every questions was spot on on-topic today, so they all fit in very well and allowed me to keep right along with the topic I was covering at the time. I was very impressed with that, so I thank each attendee who asked a question for providing excellent questions.

I'm still coming down off of the presentation. I'm glad it's over, but I think I could do another one today or tomorrow! Perhaps I'll find one of the other speakers lined up and get them too drunk tonight to speak tomorrow :)

Thanks again for everyone who attended the session, I hope to have the presentation available for download sometime next week when I get back home.
