It was a beautiful day to start with, but rain and thunderstorms did mess with the barbeque planning Germans are famous for. So, lots of people attended Web Montag yesterday!
Darren Cooper opened Web Montag this time. He repeated a few times “1st of September”, which is the next meeting in Frankfurt. For next events he really want to see more non-technical presentations. I think that’s indeed a good thing. Darren also got some good jokes, seriously!
Andreas Demmer was first speaker, talking about Presentation Zen. It made us, the other speakers look bad afterwards.. just kidding! I knew bits and pieces about this approach for doing presentations, but it’s what it is: an approach, not a method. I still can learn lots.
My talk was about MySQL Proxy, but to be honest it went not well. First of all, my cold was still there, speaking through the nose. Additionally, I have a terrible buzzing in my left ear making my voice irritating me and I was looking to much for the German words. I’m not really preparing enough for these short talks. Anyway, there will be video about it!
