I’ll be speaking at the Houston TechFest this Saturday, Jan 24. Hope to see some of you out there!
Here are the topics I’ll be presenting on:
Using the new Features in C# 3.0
There are a great number of new features coming with C# 3.0, such as Object Initializers, Anonymous Types, Type Inference, Extension Methods, and Lambda Expressions. This session introduces those new features, and shows how they are a great addition to the developer’s bag of tricks, by showing how they can be used totally separated from LINQ.
Design Patterns in .Net
Design Patterns are often used every day by every developer in one way or another. A basic understanding of patterns and how to implement them is very useful for all .NET developer, and this session tries to clarify design patterns in a way that everybody can understand and start thinking about patterns in a more natural way.
Intro to Test-Driven Development
Even though the name suggests that Test-Driven Development (or TDD) is all about testing code, it is actually more about designing the code. This session is an introduction to this way of developing software.
