For the first time I will speaking at the Philly Code Camp on November 16th – 17th! I’m excited to come to the area to do the sessions and workshop below. I have not been to Philadelphia, PA since I was a little kid. I was born in Delaware and plan to visit family while on that side of the country.

In this sessions, you will learn how to apply .NET Framework best practices to .NET Core 2.0. There are a lot of changes and every developer needs to attend this session before moving to .NET Core. I will talk about proper application setup, OOP, Exceptions, logging, unit testing and more.

Many of the practices are discusses in detail in my other code sessions that you can find by going here:


Rock Your .NET Code Performance

Time: 11:30 AM Location: Malvern

The performance of code is always something that is very important. Even more important if your back-end apps are processing tens of thousands of requests per second. In this session I will reveal the do’s and don’ts when it comes to improving code performance. Some code I will show can be up to 98% faster! Reducing memory that your app uses is also very important and will be discussed in detail. The demos in this session will work in the .NET Framework and .NET Core.

Here is what attendees are saying about this session

  • Bob R. – David McCarter gave an excellent presentation on code performance. He showed us how, why, and to what degree various coding methods improved the performance of an application. Lots of tips and tricks!
