I’d like to give a huge thanks to Scott Chacon, whose Showoff software made compiling this slideshow the most enjoyable thing imaginable. It took a little work to port the resultant slideshow to Google AppEngine, but I got it up and running. I’ll probably work on a more generalized Python/AppEngine adaptation of Showoff for my future use, since that’s my web platform and I want to keep using Showoff in the future. This experience also got me really turned on to Markdown, which I wasted no time in integrating into this blog.
This is the first presentation I’ve given in my professional career, and would much appreciate feedback on the slides.
