I finished up my post-con for AngleBrackets today and am ready to head home. I had a great time and just spectacular attendees who had great questions! If you have a chance to go to AngleBrackets (or it’s sister conference, DevIntersection) make the trip. They’re coming to Orlando this fall!
I had a chance to do two talks and an all-day course. If you attended these, check out the source code and slides (where applicable) below:
Are you in the Louisville, KY area this Thursday? I will be! I’ll be at the Louisville .NET Meetup Group talking about Web API..including Web API 2 that was recently released. The details of the event are:
We will meet on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at Adecco's offices at 101 Bullitt Lane. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the presentations will begin sharply at 7:00 pm. Along with a great presentation, we'll have food and raffle prizes. Be sure to RSVP so we know how much food is needed.
I am happy to announce that I am starting a podcast. I’ve been thinking about this for a while but I didn’t want to just do another podcast that talked about what is new in software development.
I’ve been listening to the Nerdist Podcast a lot and it gave me an idea. The Nerdist is fun because they talk to a lot of the people I like and often talk about the business more than just plug the latest project. I am interested in these same stories about software luminaries.
The third episode of my podcast (“The Hello World Podcast”) is now available. In this episode I had the chance to sit down with Chris at the MVP Summit (which explains the background noise). He is one of my best friends (and my best man at my upcoming wedding).
We talk (as usual) about how he got started. I even learned some things about him. I think you’ll really enjoy this episode:
428 attendees (including speakers and sponsors)
I've been honored to help put together the Atlanta Code Camp this year. This year's event is happening on August 24th here in Atlanta and we're expecting to have eight tracks covering a mix of developer, designer and some IT professional talks. I've attended this event the past eight or so years and it's always a good time. I decided it was time to help out.
We've now opening our Call for Speakers. If you're an experienced speaker or want to do your first talk – we want you to submit talks to the Atlanta Code Camp. This event has done a great job in helping first time speakers get started with their first talk.
Thanks to all who showed up to see me talk about AngularJS at the recent Atlanta .NET User's Group. At the talk, I wrote the client-side code for an AngularJS app by hand. The slides are pretty thin, but the code includes all the functionality I showed. I promised the slides and code so here they are!
If you have questions about any of this, feel free to comment and I'll help as much as I can!
In case you didn't catch it, I participated in a webcast called geekSpeak. This webcast was hosted by Glen Gordon and Chad Brooks. The topic today was "Silverlight and Line of Business Applications". While geekSpeak's usually focus on hands-on examples of creating code, we took a different tact today and discussed the larger topic of where Silverlight fits in the development ecosystem (at least Microsoft's ecosystem).
This week, I will be joining Glen Gordon and Chad Brooks for a GeekSpeak webcast. The Webcast starts at 3pm EST (or noon PST) on Wednesday, June 25th, 2008. We will be discussing Silverlight 2 and its use in so called "Line of Business" applications. Please join us and bring your questions.
Next Monday night (July 28th, 2008), i'll be giving the short Q&A session at the Atlanta .NET Users Group. The topic? NHibernate's LINQ and ADO.NET Data Services support. If you're interested in using NHibernate but don't want to give up your LINQ skills, stop by for a listen!
I just got back from the Silverlight 2 Firestarter in New York City. I had a great time. We have a good turn-out and great discussions about the technology. The Microsoft guys that set this up were just great, especially Peter Laudati who organized the whole thing and made my short trip up there really simple and fun.
As promised here are the slides and demo's from my talks at the Atlanta Code Camp yesterday. It was a great time and I got to see a lot of attendees and speakers who I haven't seen in a while.
My big embarrassment moment was at the speaker's dinner when I saw David Silverlight and completely forgot who he was (i've met him a number of times). When I heard he'd just flown in from Florida, I asked him, "Did you fly in with David Silverlight?". He promptly replied, "In a sense, yes..." I was so red faced.
Its that time again. The Atlanta Code Camp is open for registration. I will certainly be doing a bunch of Silverlight 2 talks (though I am not sure how many yet). If you want a day of fun, learning new technologies and a way to meet the cream of the crop of the Atlanta speakers...register now!
For my loyal readers of this blog, you've probably noticed the blog has had a lot of announcements lately and not a lot of content. That's on purpose. With the release of Silverlight 3 being scheduled for this Friday, I've been holding back on my Silverlight content until that happens. So check back this weekend for some, hopefully, interesting discussions!
