Codemash 2010 Slides – .NET Basics

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in .Net, MVP10 | Posted on 27-02-2010

I committed a major faux pas as far as speakers go.  I woke up this morning and realized I had never published my slide decks for the full day Precompiler I did at Codemash 2010 on Back to The Bascis with .NET.  To correct this travesty I immediately grabbed the folder, compressed it and uploaded it to my site for the world to enjoy (or print copies of and burn, either way).  You can find all five decks along with some of the demos at the following URL:
