Come see me at DevIntersection

I’m excited to be speaking at DevIntersection in Orlando next month. I’ve got three different talks at this conference.

One for the current wave of tools you already have:

Navigating large codebases using Visual Studio 2013

Visual Studio 2013 adds many new features that can help you learn and explore large codebases. That's important now because more of our time is spent integrating open source libraries and working on long-lived and large codebases. In this session, we'll explore a popular Open Source library using these new features. You'll learn techniques that will take you from confused n00b to experienced ninja in less time than ever before.

There’s one for the wave of technology that’s being released:

Getting Started with Visual Studio Online

The Visual Studio Online services provides a single point for managing source, project data, team collaboration, and deployment information about your project. This session provides an overview of how you can use these tools to manage personal projects with the same tools and processes you use for your professional work. Best of all, it's at a much lower price than many competitive tools.

And, there’s one that’s more forward looking:

An Introduction to the Roslyn APIs

The next version of C# and VB will be built on Roslyn, a new set of APIs that you can use to explore and modify the code in your applications. In this session, you'll learn about the Roslyn architecture and what you can do with Roslyn extensions. You'll learn the basics of a new world where you can explore and modify your code programmatically.

Overall, there are more than 200 great sessions from the industry leaders and experts you’ve come to rely on.

In addition to the regular sessions, there are pre-conference and post-conference workshops you can attend.  And, if you include at least one workshop in your registration, you get your choice of a free Surface 2, or XBOX ONE.

Current Projects

I create content for .NET Core. My work appears in the .NET Core documentation site. I'm primarily responsible for the section that will help you learn C#.

All of these projects are Open Source (using the Creative Commons license for content, and the MIT license for code). If you would like to contribute, visit our GitHub Repository. Or, if you have questions, comments, or ideas for improvement, please create an issue for us.

I'm also the president of Humanitarian Toolbox. We build Open Source software that supports Humanitarian Disaster Relief efforts. We'd appreciate any help you can give to our projects. Look at our GitHub home page to see a list of our current projects. See what interests you, and dive in.

Or, if you have a group of volunteers, talk to us about hosting a codeathon event.
