Toronto Code Camp Was Great, My Highlights.

April 3rd, 2007

Windows Vista Programming with Kate Gregory – Kate briefly covered some of the exciting aspects of Vista Programming. Kate is an amazing speaker, and a true C++ guru, she may have sparked my C++ renaissance.

Barry Gervin’s impromptu session on Unit Testing and Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) – Barry gave an excellent presentation without a single power point, it was more of a question and answer period and Barry had the answers. Interesting topics included Test Driven Design (TDD) with VSTS, Team Foundation Server (TFS) Tips, and a brief overview the newest version of Visual Studio (Orcas) – which will have Unit Testing baked into the Professional / Developer version.

Chris Dufour’s great session on the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), where the power of WCF and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) were unlocked. Kudos to Chris he’s also the organizer of Toronto’s code camp.

It was a great event. I met a lot of great people with a common passion for development / programming. I’ll definitely be attending more, and I’m even toying with the idea organizing one here in Ottawa. :)
