Poll results: How do you prepare your EclipseCon talks

The results are in! In yesterday's poll I asked how you prepared for your talk(s) at EclipseCon. Here were your answers:



30 i-prepare-my-talks-on-the-plane-to-econ

27 oh-crap-ill-be-back-later-theres-something-i-must-go-do

22 i-prepared-my-talk-in-2009-maybe-i-should-update-it

19 i-prepare-my-talks-while-i-drive-to-econ

16 i-prepare-my-talk-when-i-get-there



124 I-assumed-Denis-was-preparing-my-talks-for-me

If you think I am in some way qualified to prepare your talks, the attendees are in for a painful experience.


56 like-Eric-I-prepare-mine-on-the-toilet


That is way too much information.  I'd be leery of printed handouts at those talks.



For some reason, there were more answers on the topic of beer than any other.   I am shocked!

9 this.is.my.first.eclipsecon.ever.its.going.to.be.great---they.say.you.buy.beers

Congratulations -- you are in for a great week. Catch me at the bar and I'll buy you a beer.  You'll need to be fast since I am not at the bar very often.


6 please.set.up.a.better.404.page.for.eclipsecon


In this age of Drupal-enabled websites, this is out of my control.

 

5 ive.been.to.many.eclipsecons---why-have-you-never-bought-me-a-beer

I am sorry.  I will try harder this year.




5 /webmaster.ive.been.to.all.the.eclipsecons---and.I.know.you.buy.beers


I know who you are.


5 /webmaster.ive.been.to.a.couple.of.eclipsecons---I-prefer-to-run-than-drink-beer


I will run with you -- to the beer store!


 


Thanks to everyone who participated!  I look forward to seeing everyone again at EclipseCon 2013!

EclipseCon Poll: How are you preparing your talk(s) for EclipseCon

It's time for another Webmaster Whacky poll, where failure is the only sign of success.  In less than a week we'll all be at our favourite hangout, EclipseCon 2013.  This time I ask a simple question:
