Technology review and workshop- page 1
This is a listing of many of the products discussed in the presentation. Some meetings print this out before this presentation. If you have a specific question, you can reach me via email at email@example.com. Note that inclusion in this list is informational and does not indicate an endorsement. I apologize in advance for any products or companies that are not included. Note that some additions and changes will occur on the podium. The handout is just a sketch of what you have seen and heard.
This page has 4 years worth of links to products. Updating is a full time task. Some of the links are no longer functional. Many have to be re-categorized. During 2016 I am trying to re-sort these. If you come upon a dead link or incorrect information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as I continue in this quest.
