Hanselminutes on 9 - More from Norway, inside the Speaker's Room

12693176I'm heading to the Bergen, Norway .NET Users Group today after speaking at the Norwegian Developer's Conference in Oslo.

I've been filming videos in the speaker room with a Creative Vado HD portable Hi-Def video camera. Earlier I filmed:

And before I head to Bergen I wanted to put up one more, this one with Jeremy Miller on "StoryTeller" an acceptance testing framework that he's dogfooding (dogfooding means using your own software first to prove it's useful) with his team. Jeremy's been working and talking about StoryTeller for a while and I'm glad to hear that the work continues and that we'll be able to check it out soon.

Hanselminutes on 9 - In Norway, inside the Speaker's Room

June 18, '09 Comments [4] Posted in Channel9 | Speaking

12781036I'm in Norway, speaking at at the Norwegian Developer's Conference. It's a large conference and they've had to hold it inside an indoor soccer stadium as there aren't a lot of large convention centers in Norway.

See if you can get your head around what you're seeing in this pic. They've used curtains to build up a "room" on the bleachers of this part of the stadium. I'm inside that black box, and the people who are overflowing up the bleachers also go all the way down to the bottom. On the outside of the box is projected both a live video of me as well as my projected computer. That acts as an overflow room, and there's people sitting out there also. It's a very clever way to do it, and they've set up six different track rooms, all like this, around the stadium.

Anyway, there's a small speaker's room that we prepare our talks in. I realized that a lot of fun conversations happen in the speaker's room, and it's not fair that the attendees can't enter our "sanctuary." ;) So, I filmed some of it and posted the raw video on Channel 9 under "Hanselminutes on 9."

I captured three conversations so far. To be clear, it's raw, random and silly, but it's representative of the kind of random crap we talk about in the speaker's room. I'd also point out that one speaker just left in the middle because they couldn't get any "friggin'" work done.

Note also that these were all filmed with a Creative Vado HD portable Hi-Def video camera.

MSDN Bytes - Today's Random Silly Hanselman Video

June 11, '09 Comments [7] Posted in Channel9
Sponsored By

I just got an email that a video I did with MSDN a while back, at TechEd I think, was just posted online. I'd forgotten about it, frankly. (I prefer to post my Channel 9 "HanselminutesOn9" videos an hour or two after I take the video...feels fresher, IMHO)

Anyway, it's even worse that I remember. ;) I'm in a silly mood, so if you want to see me being totally random, here you go.
