Upcoming Speaking Engagements

I’ve got a somewhat busy October for speaking!

  • This Thursday (7 Oct) I’ll be talking at the Cincinnati Programmer’s Guild hosted at Max Training. I’m giving my Three Tips to Improve Your Development Process talk. This is one of my favorite talks because it hits a few specific things you can do to improve your development environment regardless of where you work: Start daily standups, use retrospectives, and get a handle on your estimation.
  • Saturday I’ve been invited to kick off the Software Quality Firestarter in Mason (Cincinnati) with my talk on Testing Web Applications with Selenium. This is an intro-level talk, plus I pass on a LOT of hard knocks lessons we’re learning while using Selenium at my work. It’s a 60 – 75 minute talk with an incredible amount of goo crushed in to it. (There are still seats open for this event, so go register!)
  • Finally, Justin Kohnen and I are teaming up at the Dayton .NET Developers Group on 27 Oct to cover a few odds and ends in Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0. I’ll be showing off some of the neat goodies helping you get rolling with Test Driven Development. I will also talk a bit about the web test framework and show some uses of it for creating simple performance tests. Justin will be covering some of the goodness around ASP.NET, configuration deployment support, and some other things. I always love co-presenting with Justin because he’s wicked smart and geeks out on all these cool toys.

Let me know if you’re going to be at any of these events. It’s always nice to put a face to blog readers or Tweeps!
