Speaking at MySQL User Conference

MySQL User Conference Speaker I've been accepted to present a 30 minute session on AppFuse at the MySQL User Conference in Orlando! I would have never thought to even apply, but Mark Matthews sent me an e-mail and convinced me to give it a shot. Now I'm pumped that I did. Here is the abstract for Easy Java Development with MySQL:

Using my open source AppFuse application, I will show how easy it is to setup a MySQL database using Ant, create the Tables using Hibernate/Ant and populate it using DBUnit.

Other events I'm speaking at in the next couple of months include a one-day conference in NYC on Developing Webapps using Open Source Tools and a Basic Concepts presentation on AppFuse at Denver's JUG in June.

Now the only question is - should I use PowerPoint/Keynote or enhance my simply preso app to write these presentations?

Wow! Congratulations Matt. I have been reading your blog for a while and have decided to make my first post. If you can, make sure to post the presentation documents for us all to read. Nice MySQL Speaker logo too! -Chris

Since I'm down in Miami I'm going to try and make it up to the conference for a couple of days. Do you know what day you are presenting on? Perhaps we can get together for a beer. Anyhow drop me an email and let me know your plans.

It looks like I'm presenting on Wednesday morning. Having a beer in the Florida Sun sure sounds good on this cold Denver day... ;-)

Congratulations Matt. I find that doing the PowerPoint/Keynote thing helps me organize my presentations. I don't always use slides during the presentation, but I have a handy outline to keep my talk on track. I print out a handout version for my students. I find this helps solve two problems. First, the students done't have to write down URL's. Second, if you have a large class, people in the back often cannot see or read your examples. Handouts solve this problem. Well, that's my two cents. Good Luck.

So Matt, are turning into one of those professional book-writing-and-conference-speaking guys? Why don't you see if you can get into the NoFluffJustStuff up here in Minnesota, so we can finally meet. And I'll take you out for beers, too, I promise.

Lance - it's always been one of my goals to learn enough to speak about a topic, so I'm pumped to get the opportunity. I doubt I'll do it too much though - it requires a lot of travel and leaving the family at home. That's just no fun. Of course, for conferences that are in prime locations (i.e. Disney World), why wouldn't you go?! ;-)

Posted by Matt Raible on February 24, 2004 at 03:07 PM MST #

Matt, so you are saying MN isn't a prime location? It is great here in the summer! :) I second Lance's offer as I two would love to take both you and Lance out for a beer here in MN!

Hey Matt, Glad to read that you are stoked for the conference! One note on the scheduled time: I won't be doing a final placement of the sessions until we have confirmed the attendance dates for our speakers - expect the times to change so that we can meet these needs and so that we will have less conflicts between sessions with related content.

Matt, That is great news! Email me and we can oganize to meet up for a beer. Are you staying till Fri? If so, would you be interested to speak at the Orlando JUG about AppFuse, maybe on that Thur? Email me and we can arrange.

Posted by dsuspense on February 25, 2004 at 10:34 PM MST #

Matt, I spoke with the OJUG chair and he is very interested in having you speak, so if you can do it on Wed night we can schedule the meeting then. Like I said just email me and let me know.
