In March, we announced that the Local Flavours Track would be featured in all eight cities and ever since our general call for presentation abstracts, the response we’ve received from technical professionals across Canada has been absolutely amazing. In fact, as the guy responsible for helping to organize these across Canada, the volume of abstracts that I’ve received has been a little overwhelming at times, but I think this simply demonstrates just how awesome our technical community is here in Canada.

Earlier today, we published the agenda for the Local Flavours Track for TechDays Toronto and here it is:

  • An Introduction to Code Generation with T4 by Joubin Najmaie

We received a boat-load of submissions for the Local Flavours Track for TechDays Toronto and I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to submit a session abstract. Selecting from the list of abstracts we received wasn’t easy; in order to have a great representation of the technical roles and technologies to cover for the audience in Toronto, we had to make some tough decisions. However, in the end, I think we have a great track for TechDays Toronto that folks will enjoy and I would strongly encourage you to come out and join us!
