I had a great time at the Lansing Day of .NET on Saturday! Not only are people blogging about it, but it made the news too! Awesome job guys. You packed a lot of great stuff in one day. As someone who helped plan the Ann Arbor Day of .NET last year, I know that it takes a lot of time and legwork to put one of those together.
I didn't get there in time to see Michael Eaton's ActiveRecord talk. But I did catch Jay's Windsor talk. After lunch, I did my Monorail presentation. This was an expanded version of my 30-minute Monorail "overview" I gave during a vendor session at CodeMash this past January. I took out a couple of the "flashy demos" of scaffolding and AJAX and got a bit more into the details of Monorail. It went pretty well, but after doing a post-mortem (I always jot down notes on how I feel I did), I think I'd do this talk a little differently in the future. Probably a bit more of me actually coding a few controllers and less viewing code "concepts" in Powerpoint.
But the best part was my speaker badge signed by The Elder himself! I will cherish it for years to come.
