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.
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:
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:
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.
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!
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.
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 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:
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.
