[Mono-list] proselytizing

I saw Miguel's presentation and really was impressed.  I don't think I could
do his slides justice but I will try to hit some of the same points.  Also,
I don't have an iPhone (or iPod touch).  As far as the Simd stuff, I think I
can steal the speed comparison slide off his blog.  I have seen many of his
presentations.  I saw his stuff in France and many others.  This talk will
force me to try and play with Moonlight.  I am very excited.  So far, I have
been a boring Gtk on Linux only guy.  I will have to broaden my scope.
Hopefully 5 days is enough time to prepare.


Monodevelop will need to be part of the Demo.

I figure I should show some ASP.NET though I never worked with it myself.
Are there sites that I can show and claim are running on Linux with Mono?

I would like to show a few Gtk apps.  Some streaming music would be slick.

If I could get some Moonlets going that would be great.

Maybe some OpenOffice and Gimp addons.

A few Silverlight pages that render well.

As far as the games and Unity, it will have to be light on show and heavy on
tell.  I know this is great eye candy.  Oh well.


Thanks for your ideas and help.  I will try and post whatever I come up


Here is the link to user group site for those that are interested.  (There
will be pizza and soda!)

I really like Miguel's Mono presentation at PDC [1] since it
demonstrates features, which are specific to Mono (C# shell,
Mono.Simd) and a large project, which relies on Mono (Unity).

I would recommend you to contact Miguel directly and ask if he would
like to share some presentation material with you.
