It was my first time to join a community event in Singapore during yesterday's Heroes Community Launch and it was a blast! It was also cool to see that of nine presentors during the event, three of us are Pinoys. I definitely am looking forward to meeting more of the community people soon.
First-time jitters got to me though. Towards the end of my demonstration, I encountered a problem which I didn't encounter during my personal run-through while preparing for it. And when I saw the "15 minutes left" sign from the organisers I knew I was in trouble! Fortunately the attendees were patient and didn't walk out on me, ha ha.
Anyway, as promised, here are the slides and demo code. The problem I encountered was because I was trying to trigger a UI event indirectly from the data bound to the control. I'll make sure I'll never do that again! Download the links below:
Maybe next time I'll imitate Pom and put in some video (or series of screenshots -- maybe less than 213 screens, huh?) as backup just in case I flub the demo. Or I can do some cut-n-pasting in the background to ensure I'm not putting in typos and stuff (does anybody have a nice free tool that can do this?). I guess I'm getting old.
