Friday I’ve been in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. At the beginning of the day me with my wife visited couple of shops to buy some special things my wife makes
. And than we went to have a good sit in small restaurant till 7 PM. I had to finish up my presentation…
is great group of smart people willing to learn interesting things in .net but maybe from deeper standpoint than standard .net user groups do. I’ve been having good conversations in twitter with @chaliy
and once we met at UnetaPlus
in Kharkiv where he invited me as speaker to the @kievaltnet
. Peliminary we agreed on something about NHibernate.
I knew that I have to prepare something interesting on NHibernate. But what? There are dozen of articles on it, there are many videos available. Topic just came itself. You might know that I’ve been working with NH for long time already and that I’ve written something similar to ORM
so I decided that getting some insight into NHibernate’s guts would be really interesting.
So before 7 PM I got to the Ciklum
office (building on the left). Landscapes from the 20th floor are astonishing, especially at night.
Not sure if I was enough prepared, but at least I felt that guys were listening to me very-very attentively. Some of them twitted simultaneously (@alexbeletsky
) and had good laugh. At least I invented term “swiss breakpoint” (aka. conditional breakpoint with cross).

Also I tried to joke much, but it didn’t go as well as I expected it to, guess because of sleepless night and general tiredness. Also I spoke with accent (as per them o_O. Never thought I have any kind of accent of my native language).
I would like to thank all guys, who came to listen to me and other presenters. Thanks for having me at Kiev ALT.NET. It had been great time and I would like to be there once again despite reason (to speak or to listen).
