The Developer's Edge talk in Second Life

Just finished talking in Second Life. The slides from the talk are available from SLX. I've got into the habit of writing a transcript for my SL presentations - basically in case the audio fails for some reason.

The talk focuses a bit more on the way that people now get information (through blog posts, articles, indexed by search engines) and the Q&A after the talk was more about that than the technical content of the book. This is a domain that I've given a fair amount of thought to. When writing technical books there is a challenge to balance the information so that it includes the necessary details without writing material that will be out of date by the time that the book hits the press. Fortunately a large amount of the information that developers need is relatively long lived. The challenges come when describing a particular revision of the software, or a particular processor - details which can be very useful for people, but also details which may not age gracefully!

Second life slides and script

Just completed the Second Life presentation. It appeared well attended, and I got a bundle of great questions at the end. If you were there, thank you! I've uploaded a screen shot that I managed to get before the presentation started. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of the stage setup with the life-size books, a very nice touch.

Presentation and Q&A in second life tomorrow

I'll be in Second Life tomorrow talking about the book. The session is at 9am PST in the Andromeda Theatre. I've got a small set of slides describing the contents of the book (Here's the full ToC for the book). After the slides I'll be sticking around to answer questions.

Second life appearance (24th April @9am PST)

I've been invited to appear in Sun's "Meet the authors" programme in Second Life. I'll be talking about my book on 24th April, 9am PST. Hopefully there will be copies of my free book available to some fortunate attendants.

I missed the kick-off event, which was Jonathan Knudsen's talk on his book "Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA", the transcript is available. He's also the author of the "Unofficial Guide to LEGO Mindstorms Robots", which probably makes him a tough act to follow!
