Speaking at NNUG Kristiansand and Smidig 2009 next week

On Wednesday 21 October I will be visiting the Kristiansand chapter of NNUG to give two Silverlight presentations. The first will be about the MVVM design pattern, and the second on building business focused applications using .NET RIA Services. After the NNUG meeting there will be a geekbeer get-together at Patrick’s. Details and registration for the meeting is up on the NNUG site.

On Thursday and Friday (22-23 October) I will be attending the Smidig 2009 (Agile 2009) conference in Oslo. This will be my first time attending the Smidig conference, and I’m really looking forward to it. The format of the conference is 4 lightning talks pr hour before lunch, and open spaces after lunch. Judging by the number of submitted talks I think it is going to be a really interesting conference, and I hope to learn allot about how to run successful agile software projects. I’m also a big fan of open spaces and the interaction between conference attendees it enables.

Since I was planning to attend the conference I made a last minute decision to submit a talk on UX prototyping in agile projects using Balsamiq and SketchFlow. The talk got accepted, which means I will not only be attending – I will also be speaking at the conference!

I’m looking forward to doing some presentations again, and I hope to see you in Kristiansand or Oslo next week!
