As I mentioned previously, I spoke to the Architecture Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Indianapolis .NET Developer Association (IndyNDA). Steve Porter, who is in charge of the group, asked me to present when they founded the group last September and it took a few months for our schedules to align and I am glad that they did. Steve asked me to do the “in person” version of my Architecture by Baseball series of articles.
I have to admit at first I did not see the value in standing up in front of a group and covering things that I had already written. As I was putting the presentation together, however, I realized that there are a lot of things that I had not covered in the articles themselves add a lot of color to the topics presented in the written form. I had a lot of fun putting the talk together (which I did at the last minute, the night before) and had even more fun delivering the talk to the group (about 35 people or so). Thanks to Steve and to all those who attended the talk.
I promised I would make the deck available to the people there and thought I would share it here as well. It is up on My Slideshare Account:
