I am scheduled to speak at the DevTeach conference in Vancouver on Wednesday, November 28, 2007 from 11:00 AM to 12:15 PM. The topic I will be presenting is the same topic I gave to the .netBC group on Wednesday September 12, 2007. That presention took 2 hours. Therefore, I must shave off about 45 minutes from that presentation.
The DevTeach conference is moving outside of Montreal for the first time. I attended it twice in spring 2005 and spring 2007. It is definately a very worthwhile conference. If you want to be on top of current and up-coming technologies in our very fast moving profession, it is a good use of three days.
Jean-Rene Roy, who is the owner of the DevTeach & SQLTeach shows, is organizing a very different type of conference in Vancouver. New to Vancouver will be an XNA track, a Halo-3 competition, and a free beer party with Palermo. It looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. Here is more on the various activities:
