Tampa Code Camp/WPF Presentation

I had a couple of requests for my slide deck. It's short and mostly pictures, but here it is.

Additionally, the xaml-only font viewer is here. (You might want to do a right-click, save as). The binding example (old way vs. wpf way) is here.

I want to thank everyone that came to my presentation. You were responsive and interactive, and I was energized by the session. I also want to thank the DevFish for pushing me to get more involved in these events.

Some additional personal highlights from the event:

Bill Reiss of Blue Rose Games did a session on developing games with XNA. Specifically, he demonstrated publishing the game to his Zune. Very cool. His Dr. Popper game will be among the community games on Xbox Live soon. It should be pretty cheap as well. (Support indie game developers!)

Meeting passionate people who are excited about their craft is always the best part of these events. I'm always looking for the cross pollination of good ideas. It's also great to discover what's going on in neighboring communities.

I got chat to Los Techie ninja Sean Chambers, a fellow agilist and BDD/TDD practioner . We're doing a TDD firestarter in Tampa next month. I'm really excited about the event.

I also meet Jay Kimble and had some good conversation about the controversies of ALT.NET and related practices. Jay's also one of the forces behind the Tampa UX group; a user group for developers focused on usability, UX, and general UI issues. I'm fascinated by this as those topics are increasingly my focus.

If you are in Florida, don't forget to come the the MSDN Developer Conference in Orlando this week. Rob and I will be there showing off some of our recent work for the Tallahassee-based MapDotNet.
