Speaking announcement: ThatConference

I’m a bit late getting this up.  It’s been one of those months.  I’m attending and speaking at my first ThatConference this summer.

That Conference

My talk is on the dangers and misuses of void returning async methods in C# 5.  I’ll discuss the problems with that practice, and go over some of the practices that can be used to avoid that practice. It’ a wicked strong lineup of speakers and content, and I do hope you can make time to attend my talk.


I’m also going to be running a hackathon/GiveCamp for the Humanitarian Toolbox. Right now, we’re working with disaster relief experts to pick the right project. If you want your software to make a difference the next time there’s a natural disaster, like the tornados in Oklahoma this past week, come to ThatConference the 10th and 11th to participate. Write some code. Change the world.
