On the insistence of a good friend, I reluctantly signed up to present a 101 talk on Introduction to WPF back in 2008. It was an unqualified disaster. My mind went blank, I stress sweat through my shirt, and my fear level was high enough that I thought I'd lose bladder control. I didn't die and that was a win. I had a problem. Despite being a successful consultant in the enterprise, I couldn't handle teaching 20 of my peers. The journey of the next 8 years lead me to a career where I teach others daily.
