I just conducted an educational session on git for software developers and system engineers at General Dynamics Mission Systems. The slides will be published online in the next few weeks.
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?”
I just ran a workshop, “Bringing Settings to Life,” for the Loudoun County SF and Fantasy Writers group.
I’m giving a two-hour workshop, “Creating an Adaptive Setting,” at Capclave 2015. From 10:00 AM to noon on October 10th.
I’ll be conducting a 2-hour worksop entitled “Public Speaking for Writers” at Capclave 2014. On October 12th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
Note that authors Tom Doyle and Donna Royston attended the workshop.
I’m proud to have been selected as the Area 45 Governor For Toastmasters District 29. This area covers the Ashburn and Dulles areas of Northern Virginia. It features four corporate clubs and two community clubs.
Note: By the end of the Toastmasters year, which runs from July 1st to the following June 30th, I managed to achieve a level of “President’s Distinguished” for Area 45, which is the highest level achievable for an area within Toastmasters.
I’m very pleased that my own company, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, is sending ten people to RubyNation 2012.

I just completed an excellent Scrum Master course by Sanjiv Augustine, the author of “Agile Project Management.” Then I completed the online test to get my Scrum Master certification. I highly recommend Sanjiv’s LitheSpeed company for agile/scrum training.
