13 days to the UC: Half way there!
By Duleepa Wijayawardhana on Apr 06, 2009
The biggest student presentation yet was at Purdue University last Thursday. I'm sure the free food and giveaways had something to do with it as well as the excellent organizing skills of Rakesh Veeramacheneni -- a name to match my own, but hey I'm not going to complain, especially not when I get 76 students and professors with standing room only.
In total I have now presented and met over 230 students, staff and faculty on my first week and a bit of touring.
Okay, so quick summary, typical presentation now, good questions, hopefully I answered well. I did get a suggestion to include a demonstration of moving from Excel/Calc to MySQL which I will do for the next presentation at Iowa State University.
Seriously, if you are in Iowa State and wondering whether to come to the presentation, please do, it's a lot of fun and we can get as deep into stuff as you want during or after the presentation. Presentation is at 3:30pm in Atanasoff.
After Iowa State, I head to Omaha to catch the train to Denver for two stops at University of Colorado, Boulder and Colorado State University in Fort Collins.
