SQABD Lightning Talks 2

August 27th 2008 // Events + Presentations

Today I had a good time at the SQABD Lightning Talks 2. I missed the first one, so I was quite determined to make it this time. And so I did. I also, somehow, ended up being one of the presenters. I talked about “Convention Over Configuration”. Though, it wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be, but over all it was fine I guess. It was a very high level discussion about the design paradigm, and I wasn’t able to get into much details. And since they only gave 5 mins per presentation, I had to make it very quick. Over all, I am happy with my presentation: my first in any public tech gathering. I am sharing my presentation slides, and the videos of the presentation below. For the videos, a big thank goes to Aman bhai to capture it, and Manzil to so some neat editing.

Update: here is the video of my presentation. Aman bhai captured it and Manzil edited it. Thanks guys! Here it is:

Update 2: and here is the question & answer part that followed after the presentation

I also enjoyed the other presentations. There were some really good ones. Over all it was fun! Getting to meet so many tech people under one roof in Bangladesh is really rare. I hope we have more tech sessions like this in the future. Thanks SQABD for organizing such a wonderful event! :)
