David Keener at Balticon

I was invited to participate in the Programming track at Balticon 2017. I may even be conducting one of my workshops there, although details are still up in the air.

Note: (2017/07/15) I did end up running a workshop called: “”Is Your Setting Strong Enough to Support a Series?”

A/V for Event at Verizon

I was the Technical Chair in charge of A/V and technical operations for the Toastmasters District 29 Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI) on July 23, 2016. Held at the Verizon headquarters in Ashburn, VA.

It’s basically a half-day, five-track training session for about a hundred people, with an A/V setup for all of the rooms.

Note: The photo is by Edmond Joe, and is easily the best shot he took at the conference.

Speaking at DevIgnition

Speaking at DevIgnition
My friend and fellow conference organizer, Gray Herter, just sent me a picture he took of me speaking at the DevIgnition Conference at Booz Allen Hamilton’s Newman Auditorium in McLean, VA. This is another of the 37 plus places that I’ve spoken at, although it was a very, very nice venue. There were roughly 150 attendees present at the event.

RSA Conference 2014

I’ve put in a proposal to give an advanced talk on Apache SOLR, indexing strategies, and enforcement of complex security policies. The conference will be held February 24 – 28 in San Francisco, CA. My partner for this talk will be Jonathan Quigg from Data Tactics.
