Party with Palermo @ DevTeach is tomorrow!!

DevTeach kicks off tomorrow with a smashing Party with Palermo.  Currently there are around 100 lively characters RSVPed to attend.  Remember, cover charge is 1 business card.  Cheap price, I know.  It’s the perfect way to kick off a conference week.

Party with Palermo is open to all, not just conference attendees, so bring your friends, your wives, husbands, (not kids) etc.

Starting this spring, you can keep tabs on all Parties with Palermo from the main website at www.partywithpalermo.com.  I’ll link to each events RSVP site from the main site.  The main site will include annual sponsors and keep a link history to past parties.  Party with Palermo will happen 5 (FIVE) times in 2008 at various conferences, and it is THE BEST way to kick off a conference week with your friends.  Plan to arrive in town the day before the conference, and meet up with your friends that evening at Party with Palermo.  Everyone else will be there.  So should you!

If you are going to Tech Ed Developers, make sure to RSVP to the PwP for that conference as well.  Make sure your plan arrives early on June 2nd, and you’ll have plenty of time to get there.

For DevTeachers, make sure to come see me in my breakout sessions:

Blackbelt configuration for new projects
Jeffrey Palermo – ARC439
Any architect knows the challenges of setting up configuration management for a new project. Architecture isn’t just for the application. The manner in which source control, dependencies, and the Visual Studio solution is set up can have profound impacts on the productivity of the team. In this session, we’ll set up a source control repository, a VS.Net solution and a build script to enable a team to move quickly on the project. We’ll used advanced techniques to reduce friction while working with the code base on a day-to-day basis.

ASP.NET MVC Framework Submersion
Jeffrey Palermo – NET328
The move from ASP 3.0 to ASP.Net was a very dramatic move, and it forced developers to learn a completely new way for building web applications on Windows servers. From Web projects with v1.1 to websites in v2.0 and then web application projects in v2.0+ , working with ASP.Net can be a more difficult than necessary due to viewstate, postbacks and the control lifecycle for post-back eventing. Microsoft is providing an extension to ASP.NET to provide an easy way to implement the Model-View-Controller pattern using ASPX as a view engine (templating). With all presentation logic residing in the Controller, the View (ASPX) is left to concentrate on what it does best: rendering html. This new MVC framework is pluggable and testable and even allows for Controller classes to be created with your IoC container of choice. This presentation will include a primer on programming with the MVC pattern and will also cover unit testing controllers and creating controllers that use dependency injection.

DevTeach: Party with Palermo and speaking about ASP.NET MVC, NHibernate

DevTeach starts Monday in Vancouver, and after the pre-con we’re kicking it off with a blow-out Party with Palermo.  This is the official social event of the DevTeach conference, and it’s open to all conference attendees as well as the local community.  In short, if you are in Vancouver Monday night, come on out to Steamworks.  Click over here for all the details and to see the nearly 200 people who are already RSVPed and the sponsors who are helping to make it happen.

Tuesday afternoon I’ll be filling in for Ben Day in the architecture track and giving a talk outlining how NHibernate (an ORM) fits nicely into your application architecture without coupling too closely to the framework itself. (Tuesday 1:30pm)  Be sure to attend James KovacsThe Persistence Ignorant Domain Model” talk about NHibernate earlier Tuesday morning.

Wednesday morning be sure to come to my session on the ASP.NET MVC framework.  This framework is set to change the way so many developers make ASP.NET web applications.  It won’t be long before we’ll be able to say goodbye to Web Forms. . . except for all the legacy Web Forms code out there :-(.  Check out the DevTeach session schedule for more details on the talk.

And if you want more MVC goodness (and who wouldn’t), then you should go to Justice Gray’s session also on MVC architecture.  Our sessions will overlap a tad, but he’ll cover a lot of things that I won’t, so I highly recommend you hit both.  

Going to DevTeach? Party with Palermo location announced!

It’s official! Party with Palermo is the official opening party of DevTeach Vancouver. We’ve worked with the conference organizers to bring you a blockbuster party at Steamworks.
