What’s not to like? TechEd, Barcelona, lovely Mediterranean fall weather, intensive interesting sessions, La Rambla, networking with other geeks, Gaudí architecture everywhere…
We’re going to be there in force this year: Rachel (she’s the Boss this trip), Amanda, Seth, Don, Oliver, and me, and we’d love to see you! So, do pop by the DevExpress booth when the exhibit hall is open: it’s #50, wherever that is (we’ll find out on Monday when we put it up). Come and talk to us about what’s happening at DevExpress, what’s coming up in 14.2, what we can do to drive your software development efforts forward. Rachel has insisted that we have a raffle, so we sent her out to go buy a Dell Venue Pro and some rolls of raffle tickets, so be sure to pick one of those up along with some swag when you say hi. Swag? Shhh, keep it quiet or everyone will want some.
Seth is going to be presenting a marvelous session on Machine Learning – you should go see this, I learn a lot when I chat with him about this stuff in the office:
CDP-B240 Architecting Predictive Algorithms for Machine Learning
Tuesday, October 28 5:00 PM - 6:15 PM Room: Hall 8.0 Room D4
Speaker(s): Seth Juarez
Track: Cloud and Datacenter Platform
Session Type: Breakout
Topic: Machine Learning
Machine learning is one of the newest tools in a Data Scientist’s arsenal. In this session, you will learn key architectural principles and frameworks for creating practical approaches to solving the prediction problem. Interactive demonstration of various popular machine learning algorithms based on these principles and frameworks will be included.
And of course there are some other great sessions: Scott Hunter of Microsoft on the latest and greatest from ASP.NET and Azure; Julie Lerman on Entity Framework and DDD; Mark Russinovich on malware hunting and troubleshooting; and so many more. I think I’ll be goofing off from the booth several times during the week to go listen and learn (but don’t tell Rachel).
I am so looking forward to this trip and conference and meeting with you all. ¡Te veo en Barcelona! Or perhaps: Ens veiem a Barcelona!
