Every developer at one stage or another has to provide a technical presentation to their boss, or an important client. Being able to convey technical concepts in a clear and concise manor is a valuable skill to have.

Bryce intends to cover techniques to handle nervousness, ways to structure your presentation to convey your points, and how to look like a pro while doing it.

The presentation is also an ideal way to gain a confidence boost for those keen to give presenting a go at the Christchurch Code Camp in November (

Christchurch .NET Code Camp 2008

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

Where will you be on the 1st of November? The answer if you are a .NET developer should be the Christchurch .NET Code Camp!

This is a chance to talk, socialise and connect with other developers within the local community. A wide range of presentations will be provided from 5 minute lightning talks to 1 hour hardcore technical deep dives. The theme this year is “keeping it real” with a real focus on discussing currently available tools and technologies in a way that you can immediately utilise within your own projects.

The event is free (with lunch provided) and runs from 9am to 6pm. For more details see

The Christchurch .NET Code Camp organisers would like to thank our current sponsors who have made this event possible.
