With 5 hours and 15 minutes to go till my first talk at our local developer user group (SADeveloper.Net) I’m feeling pretty good about it… well, that is if you ignore the nearly crippling nervousness that I’m currently experiencing.
I have 12 slides, about 11 pages of notes (with key points almost finished being higlighted so I can quickly find my place) and 10 demo’s ready to go (about 3 of the pages of notes are just point form reminders of what I’m meant to show in each demo).
Unfortunately I only got my new motherboard for my personal PC yesterday, so there was no way I was going to set it up to my satisfaction and get the talk finished off in time… so I’m still using my friend’s laptop. I’m a bit nervous, so I’m gonna have a backup zip of it all on my website and one on my memory stick. So if all else fails, I’ll at least have my code with me, and I’m pretty sure that one of the other geeks there would have a computer I could use if it fell over on me.
Anwyay, it should all be fine… I’ll have everything highlited and ready to go in the next hour or so and then I can relax.
