Röck Yoür Technical Interview ™
Have you ever not gotten a job because you weren’t prepared for the interview? Would you like a big raise? Do you need motivation to rock your career? I’ve 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. Whether you are looking for a new position within your company or at a new company. This session will include crazy and strange interview stories from engineers just like you! This session includes tips to get you started, working with recruiters, getting prepared, the technical interview and more.

Röck Yoür Cöde With Defensive Programming ™
This is a companion session to the “Rock Your .NET Coding Standards” that takes writing better code to the next level. Do you enjoy receiving bug tickets from QA? Didn’t think you would, so this session will provide solid practices that I have been using for most of my programming career to check-in to source only rock solid code. You will learn my #1 mantra, along with 13 rules, that I use while writing code that allows me to write new code (features) and stay out of maintenance mode hell.
