Ironing code, geek t-shirts and even presentations!


My Presentation at the AltNetCrossGroup in London

I had the honor to be the first speaker of the cross language talks in altnet London group.

I really had a great time – the people were great, the MRM office was awesome (even though Kevin might think otherwise :) ) and most of the demos worked smoothly. Microsoft organized Pizzas and beer and the atmosphere was just incredible. Special thanks for Seb, Neil and MRM for making this happen.

And there was a talk too! I talked about Ruby, IronRuby, Cucumber and Ruby on Rails. I really tried to bring some real-world demos that you can take with you and implement right away. Hopefully, you will.

If you have any questions, requests, comments, notes or whatever don’t hesitate to contact me.

So, to those who came and to those who didn’t make it, here are the slides and demo files:

Beers are NOT good for demos

Really enjoyed the talk and the beers afterward.  Thanks for taking the time out, and nice to be able to put a face to the tweets.

It's good to know that you'll be able to take the delicacy of Homemade Fanta back with you Smile

Really enjoyed your presentation on Friday night. Time to download IronRuby.


Thanks! I'm glad you've enjoyed it.

By the way, I didn't mention where to download IronRuby from... so, fetch it from

@kevin, I'm sure the Homemade Fanta is like Galileo Galile's discoveries. No one will understand it in the next 100 years.


I really enjoy (like all the rest...).
I am waiting for the next presentation!
