Show and Tell Day – We Need You – Friday June 12th
We wrap up our 2 year presentation series with a show and tell. On Friday June 12th, you get to show off your work. Please bring your lap top and some of the work you are proud of. Reports, frameworks, cube designs, architectures, … anything you are proud of. You will have 5 minutes to tell everybody what it is and why it’s cool: What you like about the work, the subtle important issues you overcame to get it working, basically the reasons you think it is important.
We need everyone to make this a success and it’s a lot more fun with more people. Please send me a note ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) so I know how many folks will be presenting and can plan accordingly.
We will also have group discussions on a variety of related topics after the presentations.
