Silicon Valley Code Camp
San Jose, CA
o DI Why? Getting a Grip on Dependency Injection
o Learn the Lingo: Design Patterns
This will be my 4th trip up to the Silicon Valley Code Camp. I'm looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting a lot of new people. There is always a huge spread of technologies, so regardless of what language or stack you work on, you'll find something relevant to you. In addition, it's a great place to explore technologies you don't normally work with.
I'll be giving 2 talks: Dependency Injection and Design Patterns. These are 2 topics that I really love to share. Most people are introduced to them a bit backwards, and so they miss out on the great things that they offer. We'll take an easy run-up -- showing the basics in an approachable way. But we'll ramp things up to see the real power offered.
A Look Back
I had a great time speaking in September. I visited 2 user groups in the Phoenix area (North West Valley .NET User Group and South West Valley .NET User Group) and had a lot of fun. It was great to spend time with my friends in the area and also get to know some folks a bit better.
In addition, I spoke at a corporate event in Irvine, CA, and had a chance to share about Clean Code, Defensive Coding, and Dependency Injection.
Here's a few pictures that people were nice enough to take and tweet out during my stay in the Phoenix area:
|Jeremy breaks out the banjo at NWVDNUG|
|NWVDNUG in Glendale, AZ - Jeremy talks about Task, Await, and Asynchronous Programming|
|SEVDNUG in Chandler, AZ - Jeremy typing frantically to show the coolness of Unit Testing|
|SEVDNUG - Jeremy talks about Becoming a Social Developer|
A Look Ahead
I've got a few exciting things coming up after October. In November, I'm speaking at Visual Studio Live in Orlando, FL. The folks at SEVDNUG got a preview of one of my talks ("Unit Testing Makes Me Faster: Convincing Your Boss, Your Co-Workers, and Yourself"), and I want to give a big thanks to Barry Stahl, J. Michael Palermo, and Justin James for hanging around to give me feedback. The fine-tuning will make the talk even more awesome.
And this week, I found out that I've been accepted as a speaker at CodeMash in January. I've heard really great things about that event, and I'm looking forward to going out to Ohio and meeting a whole new slew of people.
I hope to see you at an event in the future. And if you want me to come to your event, just drop me a note, and we'll see what we can work out.
