Past Lecture Experience
On Thursday May 24th, along with Christine Dickson Ph.D., I gave a talk at the Agilistry Studios. The topic was "Pragmatic Thinking and Learning," which is the title of the excellent book by Andy Hunt. We gave an overview of the book and presented our own take on the psychology of programmers.
I have been fortunate to have numerous opportunities to speak at universities, conferences, and corporations. My first lecture experience was teaching the MIT course 6.916 Software Engineering for Web Applications at the California Institute of Technology and UCLA from 1999-2000. I have given talks Ruby On Rails talks at RailsConf as well as many Meetup groups. In 2011, I gave a talk to the Cappuccino team at CappCon outlining the numerous oversights and mistakes they are making in the management of their otherwise superb application framework.
On October 28th, 2011, Caltech invited me back to participate in the GALCIT Entrepreneurs' Forum where I gave advice to students thinking of leaving academia to create innovative businesses.
