Hosted by Ben Riseling, the Web Operations Manager in the Office of News and Communication at Duke University, the popular speaker series has successfully run for over six-years with a focus on solving web issues on campus.
Derek Brinson, Michael Render, Darin Tyler, and I spoke to an audience ranging from 30 - 130 people about life in web development at NCCU. Those in attendance seemed interested in our business processes, project management methodology, development environment, and notable projects.
Following the presentation, both NCCU and Duke's web teams went out for lunch where we exchanged ideas and asked pressing questions. According to the feedback, the event went well with promises to keep the dialog going.
Thanks to Ben Riseling for inviting the team to his campus. Each of us had wonderful things to say about the experience and look forward to getting together again soon.
Thanks to Tam Furguson, Ben Kimmel, Barbara Puccio, Ryn Nasser, Jennifer Carpenter, Ben Schell, Blyth Morrell, Cynthia Varkey, and Christina Dulude for the hospitality and role you played in getting us to the campus.
Finally, a special thanks goes out to Anton Zuiker, whom I met at ScienceOnline2010, for the recommendation that led to this exciting opportunity.
