For the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, I went home to spend time with family, and thought why not speak to as many user groups as possible while I was down there. Little did I know I would be dodging hurricanes and tornadoes the entire trip.
Nonetheless, I spoke about CodePlex at DevLink in Tennessee, and in various states of Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. I also spoke to a computer science high school class at Rummel high school in New Orleans about open source and CodePlex. When did high school students become so young?
Here are some pictures from the trip.
