For the first time the dotNetDave “Rock The Nation Tour” is coming to IT/DevConnections on September 15th – 19th in Las Vegas! I hope you will attend my sessions below.

Rock Your .NET Coding Standards
With lots of new material for 2014 (126.190%), this session will guide any level of programmer to greater productivity by providing the information needed to write consistent, maintainable code. Learn about common coding mistakes, defensive programming, writing better types and much, much more. Code tips are included to help you write better, error free applications. You will also find out what ‘Progniant’ is. This session is based on my latest book, David McCarter’s .NET Coding Standards. Sit close and you just might catch a custom dotNetDave guitar pick. Some of some of them will win you free software!
We will be playing a game during the session where you can win fabulous prizes!
Please take my Coding Standards Survey before attending this session (you could win a free copy of my Rock Your Code DVD).
Check out the Coding Standards For The Real World webcast I did for SubMain.com.
Rock Your Code Using Code Contracts
This session will introduce developers to the new powerful new feature that is part of the .NET 4.5 framework called Code Contracts. Code Contracts brings the advantages of design-by-contract programming to .NET programming. Contracts are used to improve testing via run-time checking, enable static contract verification, and documentation generation. Sit close and you just might catch a custom dotNetDave guitar pick.
