DevTeach 2006

It’s been confirmed. I am going to DevTeach in Montreal in a couple of weeks and I’m really looking forward to this for a number of reasons.

I’m really geeked up about the knowledge I’m going to absorb. This is the first time that I’ve been to a conference and I’m looking forward to seeing how effective the knowledge transfer will be.

The second reason I’m stoked is that I’m going to be sitting in on the User Group leaders sessions. I’m all geeked up about the Edmonton .NET User Group, and these sessions will give me a wealth of new ideas and information that I can bring back and use to grow the group here in Edmonton.

A side benefit is that I get to go to Montreal and spend some time exploring it. The city has been on my list of places to visit for some time now and I’m going to use this trip to get a bit of a taste.

I’m the Igloo Coder and if you’re going to DevTeach, drop me a note and we’ll hook up for some beers.ber of things that we had to figure out and, on some, screw up on our own. This is the chance for me to sit back, listen and take notes from all the other grizzled veterans.

The last reason that I’m stoked about this is that I get to have a break from work. Yeah, work isn’t all that busy for me right now, but it looks like this summer is going to be a circus again. If I can get some time away now maybe I’ll be able to make it through all of that.

On a side note, this is post number two hundred and one. What have I learned running this blog over all of those posts? Maybe I’ve learned nothing. For me though I think the biggest lesson so far is that the developer community is an amazing thing and that I was right to get involved for a change.

I’m the Igloo Coder and if you’re going to DevTeach, drop me a note and we’ll set something up that involves us, food and booze.
