My Lightning Talk from DjangoCon 2008

DjangoCon was an amazing conference all around. I met some great people and learned a lot. I also had the opportunity to get up on stage and present some of the things I’ve been working on here. I was really nervous and after seeing how well prepared the presenters before me were, I had doubts about my plan to go on stage and wing it. I spoke about Trailmapping and Gondola the CMS I’ve been working on.

Afterwards, I was blown away by the number of compliments I received. A few people told me they thought my talk was the best of the bunch which was really encouraging. To everyone that reached out, all I can say is thanks; it meant a lot. I’m inspired to carve out some more time to blog about the things I’m working on, specifically Django admin customization and jQuery.

Well, it is now on YouTube for all to see. Skip forward to 18:50 if you just want to catch my talk and as I mention in the video, drop me a line or comment here if you’re interested in any of this stuff.

Also, Trailmapping got a quick mention (32:22) during James Tauber’s Pinax presentation.

Looking forward to DjangoCon 2009.
