Killer Business Models and DC Consultants

I’ll be presenting my talk on “Creating Killer Business Models” on June 21, 2011 at the DC Computer Consultants Meetup. This is a “big picture” business talk that should be useful for anybody working for startups or contemplating starting their own company.

JFreeChart Presentation for NovaJUG

I will be presenting for the Northern Virginia Java Users Group (NovaJUG) on April 9, 2008. The topic will be “Creating Dynamic Charts With JFreeChart.” I’ve given this talk several times for AOL during my recent tenure there, so the presentation is already available in PDF form on my Presentations page. See the NovaJUG web site for directions to the meeting location at the FGM headquarters in Reston. The talk begins at 7:00 PM, although the (optional) networking activities begin around 6:30 PM.

QuickStart Rails

I decided to create some brief “Quick Start” presentations with the expectation that there might be opportunities to present them as “fillers” at other events. No sooner did I finish the first one, “Quick Start: What Is Rails?”, than I found myself presenting it internally within AOL twice in two weeks. The PDF of the presentation is now available online. Check out the Presentations web page for other available presentations.

December DCRUG Meeting

Still waiting for final confirmation, but right now it looks like I’ll be presenting at the December meeting of the Washington DC Ruby on Rails Users Group. The meeting will be held at George Washington University. The topic is going to be “Leveraging OpenID in Rails.”
