November 2013 Speaking Engagement: Desert Code Camp

Desert Code Camp in Chandler, AZ is less than a week away. This will be my 6th time out there, and it is always a lot of fun.

If you can make the time, be sure to come out. There are a ton of great sessions (including mine), lots of developers to talk to, and some really good food if you can stick around for the dinner (and there's beer, too).

Desert Code Camp
Chandler, AZ

I'll be presenting 3 sessions.

Learn to Love Lambdas
I really like talking about lambda expressions. It's one of the first sessions that I ever did. This time around, the sample application and presentation have been updated based on giving this presentation 15 times.

Clean Code: Homicidal Maniacs Read Code, Too!
I'm still having a lot of fun with this session. At the Silicon Valley Code Camp, I had folks standing in the doorway to watch (thanks, "doorway developers"). We can all make our code more readable, and we'll look at some really easy ways of doing that.

Abstract Art: Using Patterns to Solve Real Problems
This is a brand new session. Getting abstraction right is tricky. If we have too little abstraction, then our code is difficult to read and maintain. If we have too much abstraction, then our code is difficult to read and maintain. We'll help you identify which type of programmer you are, and how to overcome your natural reactions. And of course, we'll have lots of fun as well.

I've got some really cheesy free giveaways, so be sure to come to at least one of my sessions if you're in the area. And if you can't make it to my sessions, be sure to stop by at some point to say hi.

Happy Coding!
