As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I was invited to demo Protagonize and talk a bit about developing collaborative, community applications down at SocialCamp’s App Nite following the Open Web 2008 conference in Vancouver. The presentation went pretty well, with a small-ish crowd on-hand of about 40 people, and I had time to get through most of my presentation and demo the site for a few minutes, as well as answer a few questions from the folks who attended.
Aside from my laptop being used and abused by every presenter after me (okay, maybe I’m blowing that a bit out of proportion, but it was pretty funny), I’m hoping Protagonize got some good exposure out of it and I did manage to speak to a variety of interesting folks with some great ideas for the site at the after-party at Steamworks. I also got to see a few locally-developed Facebook apps that were pretty slick — and actually make money (!!).
I thought I’d share the slides from my presentation last night (it’s a pretty short slide deck, as I only had about 15-20 minutes to present and demo the site.)
Here’s the direct link on Slideshare, too:
