Demo Complete!

The big demo I have been ramping up for during the past week is over. It was actually one of those dream demos: my boss was in the room, and the customer said (and this is an exact quote): "I cannot believe how much functionality you got into that application in such a short time and small budget." Duuuude. That was awesome.

I really love doing demos and presentations, so it was fun, especially since the walk-through of the product went really well, with none of the blips that can pop up and kill a demo occurring. It was my first demo of a Ruby on Rails product. Looks like I will be doing more of those. Yay! =) The customer is already talking about funding for FY07. (By the way, when did we leave 2003? I can't believe it's 2006. I must have missed something.)

Congrats on the demo! Sounds like it went awesome!

We'll see if you like RoR as much when you have to deploy it into a big production site and integrate it with non-RoR applications ;)

steve - winter olympics thing?

yeah, some international sporting event having to do with winter sports. I think it has to happen in the cold and motorcycles aren't involved. Someone told me about it, I've been a little busy to realize there is actually something out there in the big room with the ball of fire on the ceiling.
