This is the list I submitted to Allen this morning. If I didn't put in your proper job title/company please let me know. Anyone else want to add any other types of presentations?


Timothy Nest, Co-founder @
I'd be interested in a mobile discussion.  We are creating a platform for rapid dev of native Android and iOS.  A recent presentation and hands-on demo went over well with a class at the business school.
Aside from pimping our product, I see a lot of importance in discussing how best to approach mobile dev given the wide array of options between straight native code, hybrids like PhoneGap and Appcelerator, and widget products like AppMakr and MobileRoadie.

Don Henton, a consultant @ Beacon Technologies (currently placed at American Family Insurance):
I can talk tech, but I'd be up for talking about job search strategies, and such. If I talked about tech stuff, it would be Spring/java and Dependency injection.

Steven Faulkner, VP of Product @
I would be very interested.  I can talk about startups, the madison entrepreneurship scene, working at startups, doing your own startup, etc.

Philip Crawford, Founder @
I could talk about the process and technology we used to put together VoteSimple.  RoR using Twilio for SMS integration.

Aaron Couch
I'm a local Drupal developer and work for one of the largest Drupal shops. I would be happy to talk about what it is like to be a full-time Drupal dev. I think it might be most interesting / useful for the students to hear what that lifestyle is like, why people chose to work on open source and are so passionate about it, though I can get more technical if preferred.

Robert Voliva
On Java Spring/Dependency injection: Better yet might be to introduce them to the concept of dependency injection, agnostic of languages (providing examples of how to do it in several languages possibly).

Zachery Moneypenny, remote employee @ Intuit
I'd really like to do a talk on metaprogramming (probably wit Ruby and/or .NET reflection).

Josh Roesslein
I would be interested in giving a talk about Titanium. I live near Madison and work as a remote employee at Appcelerator. I could show how it can be used for creating mobile applications for Android and iOS using JavaScript. I'd also be interested in talking about Node.js
server-side programming. Possibly tie the two together into one talk (Titanium for app & Node.js for backend)?

Paul Miller, Software Architect @ Digital Film Tools/SilhouetteFX
I do desktop application development in C++/Python/Qt and mobile development for iOS. I could talk about how to leverage C++ and cross-platform development principles to help better target desktop and mobile devices with a common set of code written in C++. I could also talk about the UI design issues with porting a desktop application to mobile devices (iPhone and iPad). Or I could talk about how to the issues related to writing portable, adaptive image processing code for various host environments (ie. the issues related to different image bit depths, component ordering, etc).
