Speaking

I do a good bit of talking in public. Certainly more than my naturally-introverted self is comfortable with. Following is a list of my upcoming and recent user group/meetup talks (at least the ones that I remember). I teach full-time for The Iron Yard on the weekdays and teach biblical studies-related things at First Baptist Parker almost every Sunday, but keeping that up-to-date would probably be tedious, so you’ll just have to be happy with the others.

If you need someone to speak at your local user group, conference, or meetup about .NET development, Node JS, front-end web development, or just general developer practices and whatnot, email me. The list below should give you more details on some of those topics. Or if you need someone to talk at your church, bible study, community group, or whatever about biblical studies related things, email me for that as well.
