Codestock 2010: Let’s Get Connected!

I am huge fan of community events, and there are many that make it onto my wish list every year. It is very rare, though, that I get to attend more than one of these great events in one year.

blog_badge I had a fantastic time at CodeMash back in January, and I am genuinely excited to be lucky enough to also get to attend Codestock 2010 on the 25th & 26th June. Gary, Paul and I will be taking the trip to Knoxville, TN to spend some time with Alan Stevens and Mike Neel who have organised the event, and we would really like to see you there too.

Paul will be presenting a session titled “Unleash the Power of LINQ and Lambda Expressions” and Gary will be talking about his Favorite Design Patterns. Even I will be making my foray into “presenting” as I play Gary’s sidekick in our DevExpress session: Paired Programming: Doing it with DevExpress. During the session we’ll be living on the edge with some live coding and we’ll also be giving away a free license of DXperience Universal. Check out the agenda and try to make some time to come and see us for a few of our sessions.

There are still a few spots remaining for the event. You can register to attend for the extraordinarily low fee of $79. If you are concerned about the cost, why not check with your employer to see if a small training budget exists to help you get you there. Here are a few good selling points to pass onto him:

  • Only one day out of the office
  • A fraction of the cost of a national conference
  • Excellent hands-on and interactive training opportunities
  • Ability to talk to vendors (like DevExpress!)
  • And most of all, fantastic speakers

Mike and Alan have pulled together a really impressive list of Microsoft Developer Evangelists, independent consultants and community speakers. Personally, I am excited to hear Rachel Appel’s keynote session and participate in the Women in Technology panel discussion with Developer Evangelist Jennifer Marsman.

Will we see you at Codestock on June 25th & 26th? Let us know if you’re going to be around.
