OK, so I’m a couple days late on this post. But two of the most important things this week are yet to occur. This would be my presentation at RockNUG tonight on Windows Phone 7, and of course the Northern Virginia Code Camp this Saturday in Reston, VA.

Here are the events listed in Community Megaphone for the next week (or so) for the Mid-Atlantic area, as well as webcasts of interest…this list includes events imported from the UGSS event calendar, and all events entered in Community Megaphone are also automatically synced to the UGSS event calendar:

  • @Home with Azure: Online HOL workshop
    Wednesday, June 09, 2010 4:00 PM, Online
    Elevate your skills! In this 2 hour hands-on, online workshop you will be guided through the process of building and deploying a large scale Azure application. Forget about “Hello World”! In less than two hours you will build and deploy a real cloud application that leverages the Azure data center and helps make a difference in the world. In addition to building an application that will leave you with a rock-solid understanding of the Azure platform, the solution you deploy will contribute back to Stanford’s Folding@home distributed computing project. There’s no cost to you to participate in this session; attendees will receive temporary, full-access accounts to Azure for two weeks.
    Presented by: Microsoft Developer Evangelists Jim O’Neil and Brian Hitney and Microsoft Partner Evangelist John McClelland.
    Register Today – attendance is limited to 100 per session.

  • CDUG: DotNetNuke Hackathon
    Wednesday, June 16, 2010 7:00 PM, Vienna, VA
    The "Visual DotNetNuke" Hackathon focuses on building modules for DotNetNuke. The launchpad for the event will be the montly meeting of the Capital DotNetNuke Users Group in the Washington, DC metro area.
    Visual DotNetNuke
    Developers have an abundance of resources available to help them better understand DotNetNuke module development. Resources such as blogs, videos and books go into great detail on module architecture, the data layer and interacting with the DotNetNuke Core API. However, when it comes to developing DotNetNuke modules with rich, engaging and contemporary user interfaces, the resources are few and far between.
    The "Visual DotNetNuke" Hackathon aims to give developers the knowledge and tools to create great-looking DotNetNuke modules that engage users and create a delightful user experience.
    Module Development Competition
    The Hackathon is more than just a learning experience, it's also a Module Development competition. In order to participate (and be eligible to win a prize) you have to create a DotNetNuke module in 24 hours that follows the theme for the Hackathon -- Visual DotNetNuke. The best modules are eligible for some great prizes.
    Speakers
    The Visual DotNetNuke Hackathon will kick-off with presentations by two of DotNetNuke Corp.'s co-founders: Nik Kalyani and Joe Brinkman.
