Speaker Idol Talk at TechEd


While I was in Orlando for TechEd developers earlier this month, I participated in competition called Speaker Idol hosted by Carl Franklin. Contestants had to give a five minute presentation on a topic of their choice. I chose to explain Test-Driven Development (TDD). I also made the decision not to give a demo in such a short time.

I made it to the finals where I came in as the runner-up and won a BlackJack II Windows Mobile phone. Eric Shupps won a speaking slot at next year's TechEd with an excellent talk that included a well executed demo.

I have embedded a clip of my talk below. You can download the clip here, or watch the entire Speaker Idol finals here.

Rock'n! Congrats on doing so well. If you give a talk here in the Seattle area, let me know.

Nice job Alan. You our choice of a religion as the underlying theme is spot on ;)

Hey, who was the long-haired hippie in the video? I don't know that guy. :-)
