My book about my life as a software developer (The Opinionated Software Developer: What Twenty-Five Years of Slinging Code Has Taught Me) is available for free until October 31st. Consequently this is same the time I am at AngleBrackets (part of DevIntersection) in Las Vegas talking about Mobile Web, PhoneGap and Designing for Developers.
If you haven’t gotten the book yet, here is your chance for free! This has been the book I wanted to write for years now. Don't look for code in this book (ok, there are exactly two lines of code) - but instead I am writing about what being a software developer has meant to me. Hopefully some of the advice and observations will help you in your own career too!
If you’re at any of the following events, please come up and say hello. Don’t be shy. I don’t bite…at least not hard.
428 attendees (including speakers and sponsors)
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!
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.
If you attended my "Modern Web Development" workshop, here is where you can get the slides and code. If you have questions about the workshop, please just add a comment and i'll respond as soon as I can:
Just finished my talk at DevLink on "A Better CSS: LESS is More…". It was a good crowd and I was surprised that so many people had already heard of LESS which is awesome. Hopefully I covered the breadth of the language. It was a fun crowd and it's been a fun conference. If you haven't had a chance to get to Chattanooga and see the fresh water aquarium, it shouldn't be missed!
I promised the crowd that I would share the slides and the code. You can go both here:
I had a good time doing a couple of talks today. If you joined me online, thanks for coming. For those who missed my talks, they will be posting the videos on Channel 9. As promised you can get the slides and examples here for my talks:
I hope you enjoyed the talks!
Just back from the CodeStock 2012 event and I want to thank Michael and everyone involved for a great event. I met a lot of great people and had a great time in Knoxville. Both sessions were well attended. I especially wanted to thank those attendees who attended my 2 1/2 hour marathon session on Modern Web Development (see my blog series on it here).
Unfortunately, my recording software was crashing so the talks didn’t get recorded. For those who saw me speak, here are the slides and demos:
I had the pleasure of joining many of the Atlanta .NET community for the annual Atlanta Code Camp. If you didn't get a chance to join us, you missed a great time. The attendees were enthusiastic and friendly. Thanks to everyone who attended!
I promised the people who attended my sessions I'd post the slides and example code so here you are:
My 2012 conference schedule is shaping up nicely. I will visiting a series of conferences, code camps and user groups this year. Last year I didn't do this nearly as much as I was building a failed product. So back to my love of badges and beer. If you have the opportunity to be at any of these great events, do it. I love them all. (Also, if you see me at an event, please stop by and say hello. As many can attest, I don't bite much.)
Here's the current slate (in chronological order):
MIX 11 is coming and the Open Call sessions are ready to be voted on. If you like hearing me speak, feel free to vote for my sessions:
I've been severely remiss in failing to get my source code released for my two MIX talks early this month. I apologize (there is a good reasons, but I can't talk about 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!
One week into my European Conference tour and I thought it was time to send you lot a update. My first stop was Sofia, Bulgaria to join the great folks at DevReach. I got in a couple of days early so I could relax and get my time change down.
