BONUS REASON: Troy will write you a recommendation on LinkedIn. Here is an example of one done for Fred Anderson -- Fred is an excellent speaker and community evangelist for ColdFusion. He's shared his vast product knowledge on many occasions by presenting to local developers at Twin Cities ColdFusion User Group meetings. Fred goes beyond the basics and dives deep into his topic to really show developers what is going on at the CFML and Java code level. I greatly appreciate Fred's willingness to use his spare time to help others in the CF community learn new things.

If any or all of these reasons have you itching to present, please

It's only through the dedication of our members that we keep this CFUG running month to month and keep ColdFusion alive and thriving in the Twin Cities area. This impacts the entire community, and helps us all stay employed and happy doing what we do best - building CF web apps!

Ok, you sold me, what do I have to do?

  1. Plan for your presentation to last about 30 minutes
  2. Encourage open discussion with the group
  3. Try to prepare a PowerPoint slide to highlight main points and keep the flow
  4. Include code samples or demo of your app - the group loves code
  5. Don't take it too seriously and have fun with it!
