If You Reach Just One Person

After giving a talk, it’s really difficult to judge if you reached any of the attendee’s.  Normally, you get the occasional “good job” or “thanks, that was a big help.”  Today I got a small mention by Johnathan Bracken, who was sitting in my jQuery From The Ground Up talk at Roanoke Code Camp.  This means a lot, because it shows that my talk stayed in Johnathan’s head past the end of the talk. 

He just started blogging, and mentioned me in his entry I Will Not Run from JavaScript No More. This is very cool to see.  I wish Johnathan the best of luck in his jQuery adventures!  And I expect him to give a jQuery talk at next year’s code camp.
