I just went through an interesting process with Michael Stiefel who is also presenting on WSE2.0 at the Web Edge conference.
What we are doing is basically a part one and part two talk.
His talk, “Securing Service-Oriented Architecture with Microsoft’s WSE 2.0” is a more advanced version of my part two though it covers a lot of the same ground.
So after talking back and forth about it, I finally decided that I can just literally remove the 2nd half of my presentation. It was hard to do. All of my hard work at trying to learn this stuff so I can explain it – gone. My nature is to want to stay in the room for the entire day and tell people every single thing I know about a topic. But our allotted time is only 50 minutes! So this was the realistic approach. At least Michael’s talk is at the end of the day, so he actually can go long if he needs to. I added the subtitle “laying the groundwork”.
For all of us very independent people I think it’s a good exercise to do something like this. Hopefully it will help me in the future where I always feel like I am being remiss if I am not telling every single detail of my topic.
