I just returned from DevConnections and had a great time. This year it was also the launch of Silverlight 4 and Visual Studio 2010 so it was a big party. You should consider coming next time if you didn't make it this time.
I had the pleasure of doing four talks. Here are the talks, the slides and the code:
Ninja Data Binding in Silverlight 4
This weekend i am headed to Vegas for a week of designer/developer love. I plan to spend a lot of time in the phone sessions as well as in the Commons visiting with people.
This year's MIX has be really excited about both Silverlight 4's continued maturation as well as the XNA/Silverlight 4 story on the phone. I really want to connect with designers who have spent a year with Sketchflow and see how the tool is working in their 'day jobs'.
Last fall I visited 0redev in Sweden and gave a "What's New in Silverlight 3" talk. THey've just released the video if you interested in wathcing it:
I just got back from the west coast and while there I had the opportunity to speak at the Portland Silverlight Users Group. It was a Q&A session and I had a lot of fun answering those questions. Other than questions I couldn't share information about, the most common questions were about hwo to implement MVVM. I decided to do my 45 minute walkthrough of MVVM and built a simple editor using MVVM. For all of you at the meeting that wanted the source, you can find it here:
Since I am never at home anyway, I figured it would make sense to more conferences this year. I love doing talks at these conferences and getting the hard questions from attendees. If you're at any of these events, don't be shy about coming up and saying hi. I'll be at a number of events talking my favorite topics: Silverlight and Data!
Here are the upcoming events:
I had a great time at DevLink this year. Met up with lots of great heartland folks and had some really interesting conversations (about Ruby and F# specifically). If you missed DevLink this year, you missed a great conference. John Keller and company put on a great show (for only $100 conference fee). The .NET Rocks panel at the end of the three days capped off a great few days in Nashville.
While I was charming my way through Nashville, I got around to actually giving a couple of talks at the event. The code and slides for my MVVM and Blend talks is now available on my Talks page here:
The West Palm Beach Users Group last night went really well. We had a lot of good questions and hopefully gotten some of those folks excited about Silverlight 2 development. I want to thank David C. Noderer and Morgan Baker for their help in coordinating the event and I look forward to coming back soon.
For those in attendance, we built a simple data-driven Silverlight application (though not nearly a complete one). But if you want to look at the code, here is a link:
Coming December 16, 2008, i'll be at the Atlanta stop of the MSDN Developer Conference to see the PDC content. These events will give you an opportunity to see the Azure platform, Windows 7, Silverlight, F# and even Oslo.
I will be presenting the "Lap Around Oslo" with David Struggs. If you want to learn about the newest stuff coming out of Redmond or just want to show up and argue with me about Domain Specific Languages, show up at the event.
I just finished up with my four talks at the SDN Conference outside of Amsterdam and I had a great time. For anyone who missed it, you missed a great time.
I had four sessions ranging from cloud computing to Silverlight 2. For the attendees I wanted to give you a chance to download the demo source code I wrote for the sessions. You can find it here:
If you have any questions, drop me a line.
Microsoft is hosting a full day event to help people get up to speed on Silverlight 2. Peter Laudati and I will be doing the Keynote for the event, so if you live in the New York area, its a great opportunity to learn the basics of Silverlight 2. The event will be held on Saturday, September 13th, 2008 at the Microsoft office in Midtown Manhattan.
