My first presentation was my own. I thought it went really well, but I over pruned and ran a little short. I might have been talking fast too, but through the magic of twitter, I got instant feedback.

Next I went to Peter Farrell’s Using ANT : Make Your Development Life More Productive. Peter hit the standard stuff, but he also hit on some other ideas, like using running a var scope checker, or documentation building from Ant. Another cool point is that he pointed out things in Ant terminology as equivalent to Coldfusion terms. A lot of the tips and tricks were really useful; I’ll have to download the presentation.
I have to admit I was kinda high for the rest of the day after my presentation. I floated through Matt Woodward’s Michael Collins’ and Mark Mandel’s presentations. I got things out of them, but I have nothing to offer on the presentations. That’s not a reflection on the presenters. I was just too jazzed up. I’ll report more tomorrow.
Meanwhile I struggled with and won getting automatic tagging via ant to work on my machine. I have to say, I’ve really drunk the KoolAid about it, John Paul Ashenfelter is my new hero.
