I’m headed up to Vancouver June 8-12 for DevTeach. I love DevTeach because of it’s close, friendly atmosphere that you don’t get with the larger conferences. The caliber of speakers is excellent and they easily accessible and always floating around the session hallways, ballrooms and of course the bars ;-). Plus, the deal is great – buy 2 passes, get one free.
Here’s some more reasons to go:
Keynote: Visual Studio 2010 — Your Development Happy Place : Tim Huckaby is putting together a great Keynote that will show off a lot of the awesome features in Visual Studio 2008 as well as new features in Visual Studio 2010. I’ll be on hand for a short demo myself that shows off some of our new WPF data-binding tools.
User Group Night Monday June 8th : This one is Free for everyone just before the kickoff party on Monday night. I’ll be presenting Future Directions for Microsoft Visual Basic and C# from 6pm to 8pm. Register for the user group here.
DevTeach has a jam packed conference schedule. 136 sessions will be presented with many advanced sessions as well. They are including a Silverlight track and an application live-cycle track this time. Also check out the three Pre-Conference workshops on June 8th. I’d highly recommend Building Business Applications with Silverlight 2.0. There’s also three Post-Conference workshops on June 12th, one with Julie Lerman on ADO.NET Entity Framework that I know will be awesome.
Hope to see you there!
