Uh Oh.

We just got a call from the customer. They want a demo -- in an hour!

Are we ready? Do we have enough to show? Can we cobble something meaningful together in the nick of time?

How do you deal with pressure? How should you behave when time is short, and there are obstacles ahead?

In this video, we solve a number of technical issues and prepare for a live demo with the customer. You'll watch us confront unexpected roadblocks, and confusions. You'll see how we respond. You'll recognize the emotions and the temptations.

You'll watch us stumble through the minefield. All the while solving the problem of getting real data on the screen in our minimal web server environment.
