Jackson, MS Visual Studio Event

I would like to thank the community in Jackson for having us down to speak, and in particular, New Horizon’s for hosting us in their facility.  As promised, I am posting my slides. Feel free to reuse these as you would.

It was my first chance to talk to Keith Elder, and I was rather impressed with a few things about Keith.  First, Keith’s home town has the second largest Flea Market in Mississippi.  That is no small feat in Mississippi as I understand that there are a lot of fair sized "open-air" malls over there.  Second, Keith’s appetite is only exceeded by his imagination.  The Swamp is quite an affair, and well deserves the name.

And lastly, Keith is an incredible speaker.  I am glad that I went before Keith, so I didn’t have to follow that act.  Thanks to Keith for jumping in with us!

    Thanks for the kind words, it was great to finally meet you as well.  Yes The Swamp is an amazing sandwich but I think only one person at the dinner ate all of theirs.  I was in for only about 1/3 of mine.  

    Thanks for coming down to the ‘Sippi and hanging out with us.  It was a lot of fun.  Hope to see you soon.

    I will definitely be back.  In fact, you may say "I have seen too much of Chad".  One of these days I am going to have to see the home of the second largest flea market in Mississippi.
