SoCal Code Camp – Fullerton

I hope everyone in southern California is planning to attend this years SoCal Code Camp at Cal State Fullerton on 1/24 – 1/25. It’s always a
great time and lots of free training!

I will also be selling a limited
number of my latest book “David McCarter’s .NET Coding Standards” at my sessions for $11, cheaper than the web site (no tax and shipping), please bring exact change.

I will be presenting the following sessions and I hope you will attend. Also, check out my new .NET discussion site called DotNet Army!

Building nTier Applications with Entity Framework Services

1:30PM Saturday – Room: UH 246

Learn how to build real world nTier applications with the new Entity Framework and related services introduced in .NET 3.5 SP1. With this new technology built into .NET, you can easily wrap an object model around your database and have all the data access automatically generated or use your own stored procedures and views. Then learn how to easily and securely expose your object model using WCF with just a few line of code using ADO.NET Data Services. The session will demonstrate how to create and consume these new technologies from the ground up. Lots of code!

dotNetDave’s Favorite Programming Tools

1:15PM Saturday – Room: UH 250

This session will focus on my favorite Visual Studio add-ins and other tools that makes programming faster and easier. I will focus on tools that are either free or very affordable. Tool categories include Writing Code (easier, faster and correct the first time!), Code Helpers, Documentation (helper and creation), General Utilities and more. These tools are designed to impress your boss and get you home at a reasonable time. Packed full of demonstrations and very few PowerPoint slides! Licenses for some of the 3rd party products I will be demonstrating will be given away, so be sure to attend and bring a business card!

Building Rich & Interactive Web Applications with ASP.NET AJAX

11:30AM Saturday – Room: MH 121

Learn how to build rich web application interfaces using ASP.NET AJAX and the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit. This new technology makes programming JavaScript into your ASP.NET pages easy, increasing the power and functionality of your applications, reducing round trips to the server, and making it easy to consume web services for dynamic content. In this session you will be introduced to the new client and server controls for ASP.NET and Java Script to learn how to build a rich Web 2.0 experience for your users.

Why You Need .NET Coding Standards (2009)

2:30PM Saturday – Room: UH 250

This session will guide any level of programmer to greater productivity by providing the information needed to write consistent, maintainable code. Learn about project setup, assembly layout, code style, defensive programming and much, much more. We will even go over some real in production code and see what the programmer did wrong in “What’s Wrong With this Code?”. Code tips are included to help you write better, error free applications. Lots of code examples in C# and VB.NET.
