EclipseCon 2011 and High Performance Tabular Databinding

This past November, I was honored to have my talk, High Performance Tabular Databinding, be selected from amongst the first batch of EclipseCon 2011 Audition Sessions. Now, the conference proper is fast approaching, so I'm working to finalize the materials for the full talk. I've already watched the recommended video series, and am taking Scott's suggestions to heart in order to eliminate all suck from my talk. As I progress in the prep, I'm also noticing that I had originally shot for far more information than I feel could be properly covered in 20 minutes, so I'm likely to remove the NatTable/XViewer comparison and focus simply upon databinding with SWT Tables. That'll give me the opportunity to dive more deeply into my methods for gathering performance data, and what I found in that data. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone considering attending the talk though. What would make the 20 minutes most worthwhile for you? All in all, I'm very excited to see you all in San Jose in a couple weeks.
