Philly .NET Code Camp 2007.2 Prologue

Philly .NET Code Camp 2007.2 is now history. The presentations have been given, including mine, the swag raffled, the food and snacks eaten, and I'm sure many folks traveled home enriched and empowered. For those of you who were unable to attend, you missed a great time. Not to worry though, we will be having another Code Camp in January.

I was fortunate enough to be a presenter yesterday – my topic was 'Intro the Visual Studio 2005 Team System'. I was warned that it may be a tough topic to do, but it was my hope to present the vital fundamentals in a clear and understandable format, and the feedback I received was very positive. It was also my first experience presenting to a group, and it was awesome! I was not nearly as nervous as I thought I would be, though I certainly learned a lot to improve for next time. I won't have to wait long either – I will be presenting at the next Philly .NET User Group meeting on October 17th.

My favorite session yesterday, apart from my own experience, was by Miguel Castro (photo right) titled 'Recruiters: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.' It was a very conversational presentation that hit home for everyone in the room. Andy Schwam also did a cool job of explaining custom user and server controls in ASP.NET and gave his attendees something they could go home and play with immediately. Very cool!

See you in October.
