2019 Presentations

The presentations are grouped by day, then listed by speaker's last name and an abbreviated title. Click on the title link to preview or download the PDF.

We will be adding to this list as additional speakers send in the slides and/or handouts that supported their talks. If a forum isn't listed yet, it's because either the presenter hasn't submitted slides yet, the presenter didn't use slides, or your humble webmaster is trying to catch up with long-postponed household projects even as he is posting presentations. If you don't see what you're looking for, be sure to check back.

Please Note: Our hosting service assigns its own file name to the files we upload. When you click on a link and a download window opens, be sure to rename the PDF file with something more meaningful to you before you download it. To ensure you are getting the right slides, try setting your browser to preview PDF files rather than download them immediately. In some cases a presenter's file may be too big -- more than 25MB -- to post here. Click on the presentation's link, and if it was too big to send to us, the link will take you to cloud storage where the file sits, or you'll see an email form pre-addressed and with a subject line referring to the presentation in question. Send us that email and we'll send the PDF to you directly or provide another link where you can download it directly.
