My Seaside presentation to the NYC Ruby group went pretty well - the only glitch was the ambient noise in the room; I had to shout over that (air handlers), and blew my voice out by the end of the talk. It was fun though; there was a good crowd, and they looked pretty engaged. The Web Velocity debugger in the browser went over very well.
I'd like to thank Francis Hwang for letting me present to his group, and to all of the Rubyists who came out - they all have NC CD's now, so giving Seaside a shot will be a bit easier! I'll have some photos to post tomorrow; I'm writing this on the train with no connectivity, and I'll be back very late.
Oh, and thanks to Mark Grinnell, our lead developer on the ObjectStudio product and a NYC native. He took photos for me with my camera, and it was a pleasure to see him tonight.
