SharePoint Tech Dives Presentation Last Night

So last night, I had the pleasure to present at the SharePoint Tech Dives (http://www.sptechdives.com/) group on “Building a SharePoint 2010 Extranet using Claims Based Authentication”. I had a whole lot of fun and I enjoyed the crowd. They had many great questions and feedback. We also had a good time following the presentation at Rajun Cajun.
