Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

It is a special kind of challenge to do a session on the Notes C API without finding yourself talking to an empty room. It probably helped that the sign outside the door said only AD104, so people probably wandered in unaware. (Though remarkably, very few people left during the session.) I tried to keep it light and fun, and people laughed and went along with my extended relationship metaphor. You can find the slides on my MWLUG2015 page, along with the source code and make files for the samples. To give you a feel for the session, here is a slide I added at the last minute based on a conversation I had this morning with my daughter, bearing in mind that I have been happily married for 31 years. It fit in perfectly. (By the way, if you watch the presentation, run it as a slide show and read the titles at the top.)
