Now that we’ve entered August, we’re just three short weeks away from St. Louis Day of .NET (taking place August 20-21). Last year I gave two talks (Rhino Mocks and beginner’s guide to unit testing). This year I’ve been lucky enough to selected to be speaking again on two topics:
- Building and Creating a High Performance Team - This session will give you strategies to turbo charge your team. It will deal with everything from how to build trust within a team to talking to management to process/methodology. This talk will use real-world examples from my recent experiences with my team at J&P Cycles and will include perspectives from both the development side as well as the managerial side.
- Website Usability 101 - Do you want to create a more intuitive website? Want to make your customers happier? Website Usability is a very hot topic right now. I'll discuss several tools you can use to test your website and resources you can turn to if you're getting started in usability. First we'll define what it is and why you want it and then we'll walk through a series of tools and resources you can use. Attendees will see real-world examples throughout and will leave understanding how easy and quick testing can be.
This conference is one of the best in the Midwest bringing in great speakers and content with a great venue (Ameristar). This year there are already over 500 people registered for the event with numbers likely to go even higher as the date nears!! It’s a great chance to learn some new technical content to improve your .NET mastery as well as network with several other .NET professionals in the area.
(My dirty little conference secret: I like session content, St. Louis has some great content, but for me, it’s the discussion that take place outside of and between the sessions. Breakfast with developers and geek out sessions over a pint of beer. St. Louis Day of .NET provided some of the best conversations of the year last year.)
If you’re planning on going let me know would love to connect in person…also I have two discount codes that I can offer that will get $75 off registration.
