Laurent Bugnion (GalaSoft) Diary of a Code Trotter

The WPF talk about the new collaboration between Designers and Developers took place as planned last Tuesday in front of the .NET User Group of Switzerland. Approximately 25 peoiple showed up, which made me very happy, for a first presentation! The talk went OK, though I was a bit nervous and I think that it showed a little. Thankfully I was feeling quite comfortable with the subject, which helped me when after 40 minutes of demo my computer suddenly shut down! It's so silly I almost don't dare to write it but... in the stress of the preparation, I forgot to pack the power cable. Yes, one can be THAT dumb. The battery gave me power for a moment, but it was also not totally full, so.... I had hoped to be able to finish the demo before power went down, but it didn't happen, so I had to improvise and resort to the white board and pens. Due to this, we actually moved to a Q&A mode faster than planned, which was actually quite good. Many questions, all of them allowing for interesting development. Unfortunately, though many people had laptops with them, none of their power cables fit mine. So.... I really want to apologize to all the people who attended, and hope that you had fun anyway discussing the subject with me.

I will record a screencast of the demo this weekend, but I don't want to publish it too openly before I do the same talk in Geneva (date still unknown). I don't have the email addresses of the people who attended the last Tuesday talk, so if you did, let me know and I'll send you a private link to the screencast.

In the mean time, a PDF version of the presentation slides can be found here.
