.NET Coding Standards For The Real World

4:45 pm Room IRN-140

Revamped for 2012, 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. Code tips are included to help you write better, error free applications. Lots of code examples in C# and VB.NET. This session is based off my latest book, David McCarter’s .NET Coding Standards.

How To Survive The Technical Interview

3:30 pm Room IRN-120

Have you ever not gotten a job due to not being prepared for the technical interview? I’ve have interviewed 100′s of software developers and will share my knowledge on how to survive, what we look for and even divulge some of the secrets we use during the process. This session will include advice from hiring managers and even recruiters!

Here is what people say about this session:
