The presentations, were freaking awesome, with some hilarious, and outright, DAMN! thrown in. Micah Baldwin‘s “managing personal brand” was great! and Michael‘s presentation was just plain funny and even a bit enlightening.
Ignite Boulder was on the CU Boulder campus, in the Atlas building. While Ignite Denver had a few venue relates troubles it’s first time out, I’m not sure a school campus is where I’d go, maybe it’s a boulder thing :)
The free beer was an awesome touch, Andrew I’m steeling that, the lack of food was a bummer, since I left from work, and was kinda starving since I didn’t eat a proper lunch. No biggy, but still.
I did like the way he organized the presos. I’m steeling that too ;) My approach last time was to convert them all to keynote, sorry windoze guys. then name them in order. The Unique problem there was finding them each time. I had to expose and look at each of the 12 preso’s. A pain for sure. Andrew (it looked like) combined all the slides into a single deck, with an Ignite Boulder slide in between that wasn’t timered. Ingenious!
Not having an intermission halfway through, also meant a lot of us has to get up and miss some a part of a presentation, to pee. Not sure if there was a time constraint, or maybe Andrew’s bladder is just bigger than mine, but after a few beers, I had to go.
Overall Ignite Boulder as a hit! I’ll definitely be at the next one! Crap i gotta get started on Ignite Denver!
