Presentation: Zen and the Art of Website Maintenance

Zen and the Art of Website Maintenance Example Code and Slides
(Link updated 2007-11-14 from Memphis "Day of Dot Net" version)

I just arrived home from speaking at DevLINK in Nashville - I'll be updating this post with more details later, but right now I just want to get the slides and example code used in my presentation available for download.  Thanks to everyone who attended and to the DevLINK staff for putting together a great convention.

Update: Now on Google Video - should play better and across more browsers/systems. You can download the WMV version here.

I really liked the scope of your presentation. Have you had a chance to crunch the video? With your permission, I would really like to use it as a reference to help train some of our new hires. You did an excellent job in stating things that made sense and promoted practices that were simple yet effective. Great job.

Thanks. I'm still working on converting the video, I keep having problems with the audio getting choppy (it's not that way on the source). When I get it uploaded feel free to take it an use as you wish!

I enjoyed attending your presentation, and especially liked the sword illustrations!
