If you are in the Washington, DC area (or are close enough to fly), I am coming to teach two courses just after Thanksgiving.
I am happy to announce my new online course on using Silverlight Server Communication is now available on Pluralsight. This course covers the basics of using services from with Silverlight projects. The course covers:
You can view the course online at Pluralsight’s website:
AgiliTrain has partnered with the excellent Wei-Meng Lee (author of several books on iPhone, iPad and Android development) to provide three new courses this winter. He’s coming to Atlanta to teach both iOS and Android development. The courses include:
In each course, Wei-Meng will walk you through the development process and help you test your applications on actual devices. Early bird and group discounts are available. Please see more about these courses on the AgiliTrain website!
Starting at the September 26th stop of the Silverlight Tour in Atlanta, AgiliTrain’s Silverlight courseware has been updated to include all the new features of Silverlight 5 RC. If you’re getting ready to fire up a new Silverlight project, this is the course you should be in.
Today AgiliTrain is announcing their schedule for the 1st half 2011. We are visiting cities with both our Silverlight Tour Workshop and our new Silverlight for the Windows Phone Workshop. We are visiting cities around the US including Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Atlanta and San Francisco. You can view the full schedule (which also includes our partner's international stops) here:
The last two stops of the Silverlight Tour are headed to Atlanta and Portland (OR) in the next two months. The Silverlight Tour Workshop is a three-day course on Silverlight 4. It divides the content into three distinct areas: Design, Development and the Server-Side. Students should be able to develop Silverlight 4 applications once attending the workshop. The Workshop is structured with a mix of didactic lessons, demonstrations and hands-on labs. Each student will leave the workshop having created several small Silverlight applications. This variety of learning techniques will ensure that all students become proficient in the technology quickly and in an exciting way.
My Windows Phone 7 Workshop at DevConnections is coming up on November 1st (http://www.devconnections.com) in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort on the Las Vegas strip! If you are looking for a way to quickly get up to speed on building Silverlight applications using Silverlight for the Windows Phone, its time to sign up!
We have made some adjustments in the Fall/Winter schedule for the Silverlight Tour. As Fall is often our busiest time of year, we decided to move some dates around to not conflict with the PDC and other conferences. Here is the new Schedule for the Silverlight Tour and the Advanced Silverlight Workshop:
We are very proud to announce that AgiliTrain and Rachel Appel are partnering to present a series of public classes on the next generation of web development. Rachel will be teaching two new courses for AgiliTrain on web development:
Coming up on March 30-31st, we will be holding our first Advanced Silverlight Workshop in Atlanta. This new class expands on the Silverlight Tour Workshop. This new class requires that students have a working knowledge of Silverlight and teaches the next level of Silverlight design, development and architecture.
In Part 1 of this series, I talked about why I used MVC to create my new venture. In this second part, I will talk about how I implemented MVC.
When I decided to implement MVC, I was very new to it so there is some code in the site that reflects that. The later code and the code I've gotten around to refactoring is much cleaner, but working code is working code.
We had a geek dinner tonight in Washington, DC. I can't thank G. Andrew Duthie enough for facilitating the whole night. We got to discuss Silverlight, .NET, Origami, iPhone, Zunes, and everything great in technology. It was a great time to see everyone. Thanks again for a good time.
G. Andrew Duthie has done me a big favor by organizing a Geek Dinner while I am in the DC area next week. If you're in DC and want to gab about Silverlight, ADO.NET, Astoria, how cool your phone is or why the destruction of the Roman empire was the start of the modern era...come on by. Please visit Andrew's Blog to RSVP.
There is only a week left before my Washington, DC stop on the Silverlight Tour. This event is special because its the first workshop based on the Silverlight 2 Beta 2 bits. If you are on the cutting edge and want to get the latest experience with Silverlight 2, don't forget to register! There are only a few seats left for this tour stop. See the site for details!
