Presentation for FITC @ Adobe MAX 2009

I gave my presentation at 3:30 on Monday in the FITC unconference room at Adobe MAX. It was well attended and everything went well, for the most part. I did not have a good wireless connection and couldn’t run a live demo- but had screenshots to cover me in such a case. Thanks to FITC and Influxis for a great setup!

One of the really neat things about these sessions is that they are all 30-minute presentations, which means you’ll have plenty of time to either attend a whole bunch, or just sneak some in between the regular MAX presentations. The content is
