I gave a talk at the Lone Star Ruby Conference in 2011 on Consuming the Twitter Streaming API with MongoDB. The talk was recorded, but just recently uploaded to YouTube. This was one of the first talks I gave at a professional conference, instead of just a meetup, so I practiced in front of a few of my software developer friends who didn’t know Ruby, MongoDB, or the Twitter Streaming API. Watching this, I’ve definitely improved my speaking style over the past two years, but that’s more than ok.
