If you are in the area, come on over to the AlamoCoders group in San Antonio, TX. AlamoCoders is a relatively new .Net User Group in San Antonio. Several founding members attended the Austin Code Camp in May.
I’ll be speaking on July 9th on the following (same session that got great reviews at the Austin Code Camp):
Fundamentals of modern programming – Join Jeffrey Palermo for a talk that gets back to the basics of programming with .Net in the 21st century. This talk will not venture into Test-Driven Development, Domain-Driven Design, O/R Mapping or other recent advances in programming. Instead, I’ll focus on fundamentals that few colleges or training courses are equipped to cover. Some fundamentals include the actual differences between procedural programs, object-oriented programs. Code presented herein will be basic and geared toward illustrating specific fundamentals. An example presented will be what a class should look like and how to decide when to create a class. If you feel a bit rusty on your fundamentals or if you’d just like a refresher course, this talk is for you.
