jug leadership lessons learned on slideshare

Welcome to the dim corner of the library, where fools rush in and angels fear to tread!

This blog post is ancient. If it is technical, the information is likely inaccurate, or at least out of date. If it is non-technical, it’s entirely possible that the relevant facts and my own opinions have changed significantly since it was written.

I’ve been playing a bit with SlideShare today and I took the opportunity to upload the slides from my Java.net Community Corner interview with Kevin Farnham at JavaOne 2009. SlideShare has a nice feature that allows you to sync up the audio from an MP3 file with your slides, and since both were available, I thought I’d give it a try. The interface is extremely easy to use and I’m very happy with the outcome.

This talk covers the various things I’ve learned about leading a Java User Group over the past few years. I would say that these are definitely applicable to leading any type of user group, so even if you aren’t a Java person, you might find some meat here. Enjoy!
