Silicon Valley Web Camp Report 2/26/2011

This past Saturday, I was involved in a presentation to over 180 developers at the Silicon Valley Web Camp event, a free training event for developers run by Microsoft. I presented a session on data access and co-presented some follow-up sessions with Michael Palermo (@mpalermo) who knocked it out of the park!

We covered all kinds of great stuff: ASP.NET MVC 3, Razor, Entity Framework in the morning. Dr. Doris Chen (@doristchen), the local Developer Evangelist for Silicon Valley, presented the rest of the afternoon on jQuery, AJAX and other client technologies.

Of course, the demo goblins ate me up and it snowballed but I think that overall I did a great job of making my point. I blame lack of sleep over the last couple of weeks Smile

Here’s a pic (Palermo’s presenting and I’m monkey boy on the PC for this one).

It's a tiny me, way up there!

Here’s another one of me helping some folks – this is where the REAL value is, getting one-on-one help from the experts!

I need a haircut.


Palermo and I presented some custom content not available in the WebCamp training kit. If you’d like to use it, you can download it here:
