OOW 2008

I've made it to San Francisco, safe and sound and only a couple minutes delayed.  Tomorrow will be a hectic day, as I am participating in the APEX Experts Panel then presenting/hosting the ODTUG APEX mini-conferece.  We have a great line-up this time, so even if you were at ODTUG this year, definitely stop by to hear what the US Army & Vista (the company, not the OS), WaMu, BAE Systems and Wachovia are doing with APEX.

I was also greeted with a nice, heavy box of books - not just any book, but the one that I helped John Scott author.  It was just weird to see the words that I wrote appear in an actual book!

I did, however, find the 1st typo:  in my Biography, they erronously listed ODTUG as the Oregon Developer Tools User Group.  Oops!  At least the Foreword is not the Forward...

In any case, please feel free to stop by to either session tomorrow.  You may even walk out with a new copy of the book...

I look forward to reading your book. Are you available for autographs?

hello, i wondered how much of the book did each of you write? Is there a list of who wrote what or was it just 50/50?

Scott said...

I only wrote a single chapter (11 - Themes & Templates) in the book.

As for autographs, I would have loved to sign it, but I am already at my parents house in Connecticut. If you're at APEXposed 2008, I'd be happy to sign it then.

that was a great presentation.
Also, your Powerpoint effects are the best i've ever seen. what were those transitions?

Scott said...

Manny,

Thanks for the compliments.

I use Keynote, which is part of Apple's iWork suite. It's a Mac-only application that I do have to say is far easier and more professional looking than PowerPoint.

Scott,

I can wait until you get back to Virginia to get the autograph. I don't have the book yet anyway.

Scott said...

Dennis,

Will you be at the VOUG?

do you have a PDF or Powerpoint version of your presentation out there? By the way, I couldn't guess any of your kids names so i bought the book. :)
