059 – Claudio Perrone (@agilesensei) on presentations using storytelling

Podcast feed – subscribe here!

In this show, where no beer had been consumed (a-may-zing), I’ve taken Claudio Perrone aside and forced him to give me a one-2-one presentation! Claudio delivered an awesome lunchtime session at the Irish Software Show: Crafting Outstanding Presentations – Storytelling Techniques. I really wished that I had taken my camcorder to record it, it was amazing. However, fear not, Claudio was kind enough to share his skills in this audio recording!

epicenter Open XML Slides and C# Code #ISS2010

On Tuesday 8th June 2010 I ran my Introduction to Open XML session at the Irish Software Show in Dublin.

My Slides and C# demo code are available for download!

I have updated the demos to use the Open XML SDK 2 RTM and have provided a more advanced example of the Content Controls demo. Remember, you can view the original Content Control demo here.

Photos from the event (day 1) can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/craigmurphy/sets/72157624106633205/

Attend the Irish Software Show 8-11 June for 50 Euros per day!

The Irish Software Show http://epicenter.ie begins next week in Trinity College Dublin. It’s a four day event with around 80 tutorials given by over 50 international speakers.

There’s some great Microsoft development sessions throughout the event, and particularly on Wednesday. I’ll be there on Tuesday talking about Word & Excel 2007 / 2010. I’ll be explaining how the Open XML SDK helps us write C# code to create and work with .docx and .xlsx files. I’ll also be showing off “Content Controls” which are an awesome feature that often goes overlooked!

I have been given 10 tickets allowing you to book for just €50 per day – 1, 2, 3 and 4 day options are available. There’s more information here: http://epicenter.ie/2010_Craig_Murphy_Page

To book, simply email epicenter@irishdev.com or call 01 443 4131 (In Ireland!) and the organisers will give you further instructions.

If you are unable to make the show but have a spare hour first thing on Tuesday, you are also invited to go along to Dr Chris Horn’s keynote presentation which starts at 9am. Chris is the co-founder of IONA Technologies and now sits on the Government’s Innovation Taskforce.
