C# Day - August 3rd in Waltham

After the successful first run in C# Day community learning event in June, Michael de la Maza is offering his time to run it again in August.  Michael has made a number of changes to the day's format and timing, so to be prepared for what to expect, please read his description below and watch the video (and note that registration is required):

What: C# Day

When: Friday, August 3, 9am - 4pm (8:30am – 8:55am sign-in)

Where: Microsoft, 201 Jones Road, 6th Floor, Waltham, MA

Who: People who are new to C# or new to programming

Join us for a relaxed, no cost introduction to C# programming. By engaging in participatory activities, you will learn some of the most common and powerful features of the C# language.

This day is not lecture-based. There will be fewer than 60 minutes of lecture material -- almost all of the time will be spent on participant-guided activities. To see a video of a previous C# Day visit http://learn2learn2program.com/video.aspx. Everyone who attends will learn what interests them at their own pace in a relaxed, tension-free environment with an experienced C# developer and trainer available to answer questions.
