Spend a Day with Miller in Vegas! (Free CodeRush Training)

Hey kids,

Ever wish you could spend the day with your good old buddy Mark Miller in a Las Vegas training room?


Just sitting back, shooting the breeze and talking about whatever CodeRush thing is on your mind? Well the good folks at DevExpress are working hard to make your dream come true. :-)

That’s right, kids. DevExpress is putting together a full day’s worth of formal CodeRush training, tentatively scheduled for Thursday the 15th of April, the day after the DevConnections conference and the official launch of Visual Studio 2010 in Las Vegas. And like the title of this blog post reads, this training session will be 100% free.

Not only will it be free, but DevExpress will also be giving away prizes, we’ll hear from a special guest speaker from the Visual Studio team at Microsoft, and there’ll be some yummy food to eat. All courtesy of DevExpress. It’s crazy I tell you. Absolutely crazy. :-)

As for content, we’ll start off the morning talking about CodeRush Xpress, then we’ll move into the more powerful features of the full version of CodeRush, wrapping up with extensibility, showing how to radically customize your IDE. The course content will look something like this:

  • CodeRush Xpress
    • Navigation
    • Selection
    • Clipboard Features
    • Declaration from Usage
    • Refactoring
    • Performance/Memory Comparison
  • CodeRush
    • Selection Embedding
    • Other Productivity Features
      • Intellassist
      • Auto Declare
      • Smart Semi-Colon
      • Smart Parens
    • Templates
    • Code Issues
    • Test Runner
    • More Code Providers
    • More Clipboard Features
    • More Refactorings
    • Other Language Features
      • ASP.NET
      • XAML
      • JavaScript
      • etc.
    • Extensibility
      • Third Party Plug-ins
      • Introduction – Creating a Simple Plug-in
      • Creating Refactorings
      • Creating Code Providers
      • Creating Code Issues

So what’s the catch, you ask? It’s simple. We need to get a sense of how many people will show up, and we need to know very soon so we can book a room big enough to hold everyone. If this event sounds like your kind of fun and you can make it to Vegas in April, post a comment below to let us know of your intentions to be there. I expect that soon we’ll create a registration page so you can lock in your spot, and when that’s page is available we’ll let you know through blogs, tweeting, shouting and otherwise general mayhem.
