DevLink – Awesome Conference in Chattanooga

August 29th, 2014 Comments off

John Kellar started DevLink over in Nashville in 2006.  It’s a great conference.  I’ve seen presenters at DevLink in August only to catch the exact same presentations from them a few months later down at VSLive Orlando in December.  The difference in the price tag is $100-250 for DevLink and $1,500-3,000 (factoring in airfare, room and board) for VS Live.  That kind of difference is HAAARD to justify.

Thursday's Keynote



Professional Development - Convince Me


This year I’ve enjoyed a lot of AngularJS content and some architectural sessions, notably Mike Wood‘s Dependable Cloud Architecture and Rachel Appel‘s Web Runtime Architecture and Performance Deep Dive.


DevLink 2009 – Nashville

August 15th, 2009 Comments off

I’ve enjoyed and benefitted from DevLink (Twitter) 2009 on my first trip.  It’s an intensive set of presentations by developers and it’s aimed at developers.  It’s $75 and it’s code-on-the-screen; you’ll see what the speaker is talking about while he/she works through the topic.    There are tons of speakers from the INETA conference circuit so often you’ll get to hear straight from authors you’ve read (if you read about IT).

This years topics covered functional programming (F#, Haskell, etc.), LINQ, WPF, WCF, Design Patterns among several one-off presentations.

There was a mixer at the Nashville Sounds baseball game Friday night and several giveaways.
