I gave a webinar for DevelopMentor today on Amazon AWS in .NET. The first half of the talk was on Amazon and some of the services it offers, and the second part of the talk was on using the APIs. I decided that although it might be more convenient for the attendees, giving a webinar is kindof a pain in the ass for the presenter. One problem is that you don’t get any feedback. I am used to being able to look around the room and decide if I need to pick up the pace, or slow down, or make a joke or change the medium to wake people up. This was just me talking to my computer screen for one and a half hours. Not an incredibly enjoyable experience. I really appreciated the few people who actually asked questions.
