Last Friday I was in London to speak about DeviceAtlas. My speech was actually called “DeviceAtlas Masterclass”, but I did not know exactly what to expect, of course I knew the participants would be developers interested in mobile, but what exactly were they looking for? 1 hour was the scheduled time, I prepared a speech that would take about 40 minutes so that I would leave 20 minutes for discussion. The speech was really an introduction explaining how DeviceAtlas works and why dotMobi decided to create it.
There were about 30 people in the class. Most of them already knew DeviceAtlas and already had their own ideas of what they needed. While the presentation was only an introduction, the outcome was very positive, in fact there has been a lot of interaction, questions and discussion. I think this really turned a speech into a masterclass.
The only real issue during the class is that it was interrupted by a Fire Alarm started. We all walked out and stood in the grass for a few minutes. Then back into the class-rooms and got an extra 15-20 minutes. Luckily the weather was very nice and chatting on the grass has been a pleasant interruption.
