All My Sessions Are Belong to You

Conference Sessions

Anyone who has spent time around me knows that I get a little passionate about things. I like talking about stuff, and I like doing it to an audience. Over the last several years, I have accumulated a few talks that I you can find enumerated in my blog, but there was a time before that where I wasn't as organized.

I have recently reorganized my links and thought it would be a good time to get everything in order, and found a few that were not included. Consider this my omnibus inventory of talks.


This list isn't meant to serve as a CV, but if you're interested in the things that excite me, then it may provide some insight. The further back you go, the more out of date the material may be, but in some ways you can see the evolution of my thinking as the technology landscape moved along with me.

If you would like me to present on any of these topics, or any of my current abstracts, let me know and I will make my best effort to fulfill your request.
