Speaking Engagements

Speaking Engagements

One of the things that I enjoy the most about being involved with the software development community is the ability to go out and speak at User Groups and Events across the world.  I believe it is very important to share our experiences with others and to learn from our peers.  It is the only way we can truly improve at our craft.

Typical Topic Areas

I have been speaking publicly since mid-2007 and since then given more than 250 talks at events large and small.  Over the years I have given presentations on a wide variety of topics and often times I will be asked to suggest topics for an event.  If you are interested in having me speak at your event the following is a listing of previous topic areas.  This list is in no way completed, but illustrative of the types of options available.

  • Website Performance
  • Load Testing & High Throughput Operations
  • ASP.NET MVC Development
  • ASP.NET Web Forms Development
  • Entity Framework
  • C# Language Features
  • Managing Projects
  • Source Control and Team Management
  • Automated Builds & Deployments (TFS and AppVeyor)

Request Me For Your Event

If you would like to have me speak at an upcoming event, feel free email me using the contact information to the right.  The more notice you can provide the better chance that I will be able to accommodate your request..  If you have a specific topic in mind that you would like discussed please include that in your email. My availability is flexible and can accommodate most schedules.

No Budget for Travel?

Feel free to contact even if you do not have the ability to subsidize or provide transportation.  Each year I will cover travel expenses for multiple events each year and I still have funding available for 2016.  If your event is within 800 miles of the Des Moines, Iowa area as well be sure to mention if a General Aviation airport is nearby to aid in my transportation.
