Speaking and Drinking in Tampa last night

I had a great time speaking at the TampaBay .NET Users Group last night. We had a great turn out and it was a fun crowd. About 20 of us retired to a nearby bar afterwards for some suds and good conversation. Apparently they do that fairly regularly at their group. That is definitely the largest interactive mass of people I have encountered at a usergroup that goes out and really networks and has a good time together after the meeting on a regular basis.

Thanks for having me down guys and gals!!

The talk was on ASP.NET 2.0 Data Binding, and was a little rough since it was the first time I had given this talk. But hopefully people still got a lot out of it. I did all the demos on the fly, and as a result, a few of them didn’t work out because I decided to take a few little side trips that I had not practiced, which is never a good idea on stage with new material.

If you are interested, here are the slides and outcome of the demos.
