I gave my presentation at 9am this morning. It seemed to go pretty well. There were probably about a dozen people there. Felt like I did a good job of introducing CakePHP.
After, listened to a presentation on using memcached with MySQL. Very interesting. I’ve never really even thought about memcached before, and I really learned a lot about it.
Then, listened to a presentation on LAMP and how it’s good for a lot of things, and how virtualization can allow you to run any stack you want on top of LAMP. Compared it to the history of the screw. The presenter seemed like a Ruby guy, but it was still very interesting and free of evangelism. 😉
Now getting ready to listen to a panel on state of tech in MN with a bunch of tech guys, including a Microsoft rep.

Just put my name down for MinneBar.
Since, this is my first time attending MinneBar (or any barcamp, for that matter) I’ll be putting together a presentation on building a simple CMS for CakePHP.
I’m kinda nervous, but it should be a lot of fun.
