CFUnited 2009 Badge

So this past Friday I got give my first presentation as a conference speaker at CFUnited, talking about using greenthreading in Flex/AIR.  I’m going to just sum things up quickly by saying that although there were some bumps, I had a great time and I think it went well.  I got some great feedback and some great advice and tips for next time.  For the hundredth and not the last time, thanks to everyone for coming!

As promised I’m posting my slides and my code, though I still have to document (always important: document, document, document!) the code.  But for right now here you go.  If you have questions, comments, suggestions, please feel free to email/tweet/IM me.

Can’t wait till next time!

Yes, charitable readers, with much excitement I can announce that I will be a speaker at CFUnited 2009!  I have been really trying to get into speaking and presenting, trying to participate more in the RIA community and in particular the Flex/AIR/Flash subset, since I adore the platform and the developers.  So here’s my first go at becoming a more vocal and hopefully informative part of the community: Divide and Conquer: Greenthreading in Flex/AIR.

If you are attending CFUnited and have a free slot, stop on by and watch me either kick ass or go down in flames (not so much with the flames, me hope).  Either way I hope it’ll fun!
