This weekend is Silicon Valley Code Camp and I'll be speaking on LINQ. I've got two Saturday morning sessions, one a beginner intro to LINQ and then after that an intermediate talk on LINQ to XML in Visual Basic. I've got so many demos I don't know where to start! If you've been following along the posts I've been doing on the subject, you'll see some familiar code. But I just put together a set of pretty cool surprises so come on out and see for yourself what everyone is talking about in Visual Basic 9.
If you've never been to a code camp, they are FREE developer-focused events put on by the developers themselves. Anyone can sign up to go to or deliver a presentation. Silicon Valley code camp is not all about .NET either, you can learn a variety of technologies.
Currently there are over 70 sessions and over 700 people registered! So register today and come to my sessions :-)
We plan to attend your sessions on VB and LINQ.
Will the presentations from the Camp be available on-line for those of us that can't come to the west coast?
No this isn't a Halloween "Boo" as in ghost, but rather a big boo boo or small-ish injury to my thumb.
I don't see any info on the on-line availability of the sessions but the team did some webcasts this summer on these topics. You can access the on-demand versions of them from the dev center on the right-hand side menu near the bottom. (http://msdn.com/vbasic)
Maybe you can make it out some other time :-)
