Developer Relations Outpost

In my copious free time I have been working on a prototype for a developer relations “outpost” in Second Life. Here’s what I have so far. As you can see from the pictures, I have virtually no artistic or architectural skills. This outpost is intended to be a proof of what can be done, and will undoubtedly be a lot more polished and sophisticated when I am able to do it “for real”.

Walking down the street:

This is definitely a mixed-use neighborhood:

Hmm, something interesting coming up on the right:

Amazon, what the heck are they doing here:

Let’s have a closer look:

Hmmm, this looks kind of interesting. Let’s go inside:

Walk to the front:

Stand at the podium:

Turn off the lights:

Then turn them back on:

Sit in a seat:

Zoom in a bit, to make the presentation a bit easier to read:

The presentation is starting (too bad that the presenter is sitting in the audience :-) :

Go through a couple of slides:

Hmmm, this looks pretty decent. Cyberspace can be fun:

Let’s walk up to the second level:

Turn around. It is midnight, a good time for a Web Services presentation:

Now it is daytime. This is definitely not the best neighborhood, but we have to start somewhere:

Fly above the outpost:
