Session Materials for Houston TechFest 2011
Houston TechFest 2011 is in the books, and it was a fun event with around 1000 people. Congrats to the organizers!
If you are interested in the PowerPoint slides for the event, here is a link. This includes slides for:
- “A Lap Around Modern System Development” which discusses the various aspects that go with building an entire modern business system, and in particular overall system setup as well as the various UI options (Windows, Web, Mobile,…) one has to deal with.
- “Using SOA [Service Oriented Architecture] to Architect Systems that Live Up to Today’s Expectations” which concerns itself with one of the sub-segments of the first session, which is how to productively and efficiently create middle-tiers that are a) easy to build and maintain and b) can flexibly be accessed from all kinds of systems
- “Windows 8” which is pretty much what you’d think it is: An overview of Windows 8 for developers, which tries to sum up just about everything we know about Windows 8 at this point and what it means.
Also, related to these topics, I have been referring to a several different articles and code samples throughout my talks. Here are links to those:
Also, if you are interested in downloading the free (and open source) version of our CODE Framework, check out Codeplex: http://codeframework.codeplex.com
Also related (and some people asked about this) are some of the training classes we have scheduled. You can generally find information about our upcoming training classes at www.codemag.com/training. In particular, the following classes are related to the topics discussed at TechFest 2011:
Note that all our training events can also be booked on-site and even customized for your needs, in addition to standard locations and online participation.

State of .NET Events
We have several State of .NET events coming up (these are our free, one-afternoon-long, info-loaded presentations about current .NET topics, which currently includes a lot of Windows 8 but also other stuff). General information can be found at www.StateOfDotNet.com. If you came to my TechFest sessions, you are probably most interested in our Texas events:
