Codemash – Speaking, MCing and Podcasting

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in .Net, MVP10, Speaking | Posted on 08-01-2010

Codemash is just a few days away and it is going to be a busy few days for me this year.

This year I was asked to be the official MC of Codemash.  I was truly honored to be asked and I’ve been gargling salt water and oils to keep the throat fresh ever since. 

On Wednesday for the pre-compiler I’ll be doing a full day of what I call “.Net From Scratch” or “.Net Basics”.  This is a perfect opportunity for those that don’t know .Net to get a full picture of the platform from ground zero.  Here is the official abstract from the Codemash site:

.NET Basics with Keith Elder (all day)

Technology/Platform: .NET
Difficulty Level: 100/200

Abstract: This all-day session is targeted to anyone new to .NET. You’ll start out with basic “What is .NET?” and move through building applications on in various .NET technologies. Topics covered include:

  • What is .NET? Discusses the fundamentals of the .NET platform, what it is, where it can be used, and a few myths about .NET.
  • How to Use Your Hammer – Visual Studio Walks you through how to use Visual Studio features like Intellisense, Source Control integration, debugging, and other critical foundational skills.
  • A Programmer’s Primer Programming in C# Covers the basics of the C# language from Object Oriented Programming principles all the way to generics, collections, and LINQ. This is a programmer’s primer, which means you should already know at least one language and have some experience programming.
  • Client Applications Covers standard Windows applications, Windows mobile applications and newer Windows applications based on Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
  • Web ApplicationsCovers the variety of ways to build web-based applications in .NET. standard ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight and Web Services.

As if that wasn’t enough, Woody and I will be recording some podcasts for Deep Fried Bytes here and there when we can.  It is going to be a busy few days but I am ready. 

My only hitch at the moment is I hope to get clearance from my eye doctor to fly.  Right now I am grounded since I had eye surgery on Monday.  If the Dr grounds me when we meet on Monday, I’ll just start driving.  See you there!
