Wes McClure has delivered technical presentations to both the Lincoln .NET Users Group and Nebraska Code Camp on
multiple occasions. As the leader both of those, I wholeheartedly and passionately recommend him as a truly top-notch
developer speaker. His presentations are always among the highest rated at the code camp, and positively talked about
among user group members. It’s hard to find good developer speakers – you never know what you’re going to get.
With Wes, I always knew I was getting a thoroughly researched and polished session from someone ruthlessly competent
on the topic presented. There are few people who are both great developer and great speakers, but Wes is without a
doubt one of them. If given the opportunity, I sincerely believe Wes could become a very hot commodity in the regional
and national technical speaking circuit.
Wes, you were one of the brightest student assistants ever assigned to my technology office.
You took the initiative to read everything you could find to understand our network, servers and systems.
Our working relationship inspired both of us. You taught me how to do many things and how not to be afraid to try new things.
I taught you that not everyone understands new technology easily.
The patience you learned to use when instructing others was a valuable asset to the school district
as we constantly introduced new technology to many apprehensive teachers.
I loved your enthusiasm for the job from sophomore student assistant through part time paid assistant
between college classes. Your tenacity whether tracking student’s misuse of computers or the all
nighters rebuilding a crashed server proved you watched, learned and eventually could lead in the
ever-changing world of technology. I looked much smarter and enjoyed my job more because you were
a part of it. Thank you for all those years of shared learning and understanding.
