DDNUG on 4/14/2016

One of the best speakers out there.

Fort Worth .NET Users Group

Caleb's presentation, Code to DI for - Dependency Injection for Modern Applications, was the first time I attended a .NET Users Group meeting. I'm pretty sure I'll need to lower my expectations for future speakers because it's going to be tough to top Caleb. He had me laughing so hard I could hardly eat my nachos.

I recently moved from engineering to software development so it was eye opening to see the opportunities in this field as noted by Caleb's background. I feel honored to have been given front row seats to one of his presentations.

Fort Worth .NET Users Group

Great and engaging presentation on dependency injection. Excellent illustrations of ways to incorporate code pattern into software design.

Fort Worth .NET Users Group

Caleb's presentation, Code to DI for - Dependency Injection for Modern Applications, was entertaining and inspirational. I can’t stop thinking of ways to add Dependency Injection to my applications.

Dallas C# SIG

Caleb's presentation was relevant, engaging, and the opposite of boring. His ability to get the room engaged and thinking about improving code and becoming better at our craft is excellent.

Big Design Conference 2010 and 2012

Caleb is uber-entertainment. He exudes high energy, he is super articulate, he knows his material, chooses interesting topics, presents subjects in a highly innovative fashion, and [best of all] he really understands the needs of his audience. He tailors his presentation to the people he is speaking to. Whether developers, designers, or business personnel, he knows their language, understands what will keep them engaged, and presents his talks in a way that energizes and mobilizes them. No one walks out of one of Caleb's presentations wondering what they are supposed to do next. Their biggest challenge is figuring out how fast can they can get back to work so I can start putting his recommendations into practice.

Tulsa TechFest 2010

Caleb is an energetic, engaging, relavent speaker who consistently brings his love for technology to his talks. If ever you have a chance to attend one of Caleb's talks you can rest assure you will leave enlightened and entertained.

10/5/12 Tulsa Tech Fest

Caleb's talk on the importance of tdd was centered around the theme that code is naked without tests. Caleb is one of the only speakers who mentions -why- testing is a good habit to start, and what the goal of testing is. TDD was presented in English as testing for the 'given/when/then' concept, and dependencies were addresses as lego pieces. (Finally, something I can wrap my brain around.) TDD has been a pretty foreign concept to me, and Caleb helped demystify some of the simpler concepts.

Microsoft, Improving Enterprises, various Tech Fests

Anytime I go to any event, the first person I look to see if they are presenting is Caleb. I know two things will happen when Caleb talks; his classroom will fill up early, and he will make me learn something while making me laugh. I've seen hundreds of speakers, most of them dry and humorless. Not Caleb, he always makes me think about what I am doing, keeps things moving, and is always relevant to today's technologies. I would rate him the best speaker I have ever seen.

Dallas, TX

Caleb is a very engaging and energetic speaker. He always entertains the crowd while working his messages in with deft craftsmanship. In particular, I enjoy how Caleb is able to adjust his talk track, style and content to adapt to the needs of his audience.

Dallas, TX - June, 2006

Caleb is an engaging, dynamic speaker with an uncanny ability to connect with the audience. His knowledge has many depths, and he tailors his presentations to the audience, keeping everyone involved and focused. Since this original talk, I've heard Caleb speak several times in both large and small venues, and he continues to wield his skill like a finely honed sword.

North Dallas .Net User Group

Caleb is greatness. Very entertaining and educational. Great depth in his talks and he keeps people from every level involved in the talk, from BA and PM-types with just enough technical savvy to confidently show up for a tech talk to the hard-core devs who look forward to stumping the speaker. Everyone will take something away and look forward to catching him for another session. Caleb is awesome.

I have seen Caleb speak at many user groups, local and regoinal events.

I have always enjoyed learning from Caleb during his sessions. He has a fantastic way of combining information so each individual in a mixed audience will walk away with knowledge they can use. Not only does Caleb show up prepared with material to fit the audience but he also is fantastic at gaging and engaging the audience to be sure his talk is making the mark and he will adjust the content mid flow if he needs too.
As part of community events I have been involved with, I have had to choose speakers and content. Caleb has never failed to deliver. He has always received the highest marks from attendees and I have never failed to invite him back.

Many times
