Speaker utterly failed to convey useful information on most of the bullet points listed above. He derailed himself often, did not appear to have practiced his delivery effectively. I will think long and hard about attend another of his talks.

i found the talk very informative. I have been using Azure for a while now and the fundamental concepts he brought up are not found on any blogs on internet. i wish he comes out with a small ebook for the community or starts doing more activity on the blog.

i liked the way he combined principles, patterns and performance in his talk and how he went from a beginners to best practices level.

Thanks Dan and anonymous. I already regretted what I did and apologized to Caleb the next day. your suggestions definitely help. it's true being right is not an excuse for being rude. Caleb and I talked about it and he has blogged about it too. http://developingux.com/blog/2010/08/02/learning-in-public-and-being-heckled-at-the-dallas-tech-fest/ I am glad that he accepted my suggestion on Liskov and at the same time agree that it wasn't a big part of his talk. My intention was good and I didnt want anyone to take the wrong message about Liskov as Caleb has a huge fan following. However, I reacted wrongly and I apologize.

Chander - I was disappointed that I missed your talk, I'm have some Azure/Silverlight development work coming up and would have gleaned a lot from your talk. I hope to catch it next time.

Thanks,

This was a great talk and learned a lot from it. I know this one is pretty tough since a lot of people fight the non-relational data model and agree that it did get a little off topic at times, but I have seen this happen in a few Azure talks. However the speaker stayed after the session to answer my questions that I had and left me a happy attendee.

Agreed with anonymous about transmitting to the audience. Wish to make it more interactive next time. However, there are mixed reactions to the talk. I have 23 emails with very good compliments and here is my email for the critics [email protected] If your suggestions are really to help feel free to email. I shall be happy to give some good giveaways for your comments, too.

I thought the presentation went very well. It wasn't quite what I expected from the description and ended up being about more general strategies for how organize and store your data. In the long run, that will be more useful for future projects than the specific nuts and bolts of data access from MVC I was expecting.

I strongly disagree with the commentor saying that this was the worst presentation. The speaker clearly knew the material and had a rough outline which he allowed to move through the topic as dictated by the requests of the audiance. This allowed for a very dynamic presentation. I just got the impression that there were a half-dozen more topics he wanted to cover and we ran out of time.

Anyone reading the comments can tell by the consistency of your writing skills and your responses that this anonymous is one guy. SQL Azure was not even part of the talk. How is that constructive crticism? Dude if you have the guts name yourself. I am disowning the talk and it is on you now. You've made this forum as one of your personal playing fields rather than helping the Dallas Tech fest organization.
