Edmonton Code Camp is fast approaching and there will be some very interesting sessions this year. We have a stellar lineup of speakers that are heavily swayed towards an Alt.NET way of thinking. Bil Simser will be presenting on DDD, Shane Courtrille (making his presentation debut) will hosting a session on nHibernate, Sean Solbak (also making his presentation debut) will be talking about Spring.NET, Steven Rockarts is going to ramble on about Castle Windsor, I'm presenting on MonoRail and James Kovacs is presenting on Alt.NET. There are other great session too (find them all here).
By far the session that holds the most interest for me is the one that Justice Gray and I are instigating. We're going to kick off a session that's titled "The Future of the Alberta .NET Community". The idea behind this is that we're going to have a fishbowl session where we can talk about how to get more developers in Alberta excited and interested in producing code in a high quality and pragmatic fashion. I'm hoping for a good turn out and significant attendee involvement.
If you're in Edmonton this weekend (Oct 20th 2007) drop by the Lister Conference Center @ the U of A (directions here) between 9am and 530pm. There are lots of great geeky things being discussed and some swag as well.
