Delivered my Quality Presentation Again

This time to the Wellington Dot Net Users Group.
See previous post for link to slides.
Another good discussion ensued.
This time I demoed FxCop.  That went well.
I think next time (if there is one) I would also demo the Testing framework.

Feedback on my presentation style: was good, but I need to "own" the subject a bit more.  Instead of being deferential to either the material or the audience, I need to project confidence in the stuff I know.

    Hi James

    Thanks again for that presentation and a good discussion afterwards (I was the test engineer looking at continuous integration for dotnet).

    Is it possible for me to grab a copy of the presentation slides?

    If you're OK with re-use, I was hoping to present something partly based upon the points you covered for Assurity staff focussing on wider application quality and thinking outside of the testing "box".

    It wasn't something I planned before last night, but I came out of the presentation thinking it would be a very interesting subject!

    Cheers Jamie :)

    Kiaora Jamie,

    I'm also available to present, if desired!

  3. Hi James.

    Enjoyed your presentation the other week.

    Given your own feedback comment in your post, you might find this useful:

    Strong Opinions, Weakly Held

    This is how I approach my own presentations. Totally confident that this is the best I know *now*, but aware that there's always more to learn and refutation might be around the next corner.

    Keep up the good work,
