If you weren’t aware, I just visited a few events in Florida to spread the word about DotNetNuke and DNN World 2012. The events included Tampa#, FLA.Net West Palm Beach .Net, and the Southwest Florida Code Camp. These events were all very cool. The organizers did an outstanding job amidst a pending tropical storm and a hurricane, illness, and the always challenging logistics of a code camp. There were 5 sessions in all, and in each of them, I promised resources from the session. The wait is over… Here are the resources from the sessions.
One of the things I do fairly well with my life is to separate personal from community (business). Whether it’s on the social networks, my blogs, or at events, I don’t generally tell anyone about things that are happening in my personal life. Let’s be honest, most of our personal lives are not that exciting to those that are not already part of your personal life. Most humans suffer from the “what have you done for me lately” mentality. Everyone is looking for something that means more to them. Well, I decided at Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte to change that trend for a very special exception…
It’s always been a topic, but even more so recently… People are asking more and more about various things that relate to public speaking. Whether it’s for user group meetings, code camps, DotNetNuke World, meetings with colleagues, or strategic business meetings with partners and prospective customers – public speaking is a critical tool to have honed and in your professional toolbox for your career. Honestly, many of us believe that we are good at speaking in front of an audience, or at least good enough. This first part of the year, I took it upon myself to build some presentation-style videos to explore and teach some of the most important components for public speakers.
Gizmodo originally publish an article where they editorialized the most recent video released by Microsoft. They even took a light-hearted jab at them, joking about needing a lot more hand sanitizer due to touch interfaces. I would be more concerned about there needing to be a lot more screen cleaners everywhere to counter-act our greasy fingers!
