Conference Presentations

In 2018 I discovered the reward in conference presentations. The ability to refine my work to be shared with the community and then get feedback is invaluable and simply a lot of fun. My conference presentations are listed below. Work done in a vacuum does not benefit anyone! Most of my presentations have something to do with NLP, cloud, and search technologies and are mostly practical in nature.
