I have been selected to speak at the Visual Studio Live! conference in Orlando. In addition to presenting two sessions at the conference, I’m also coordinating a special event on Tuesday night which we’re calling Devopalozza. I have created and will host a team Jeopardy! style game-show which will pit three teams of speakers and attendees against each other for fabulous prizes. I previously created the hardware and software for the Visual Studio Live Redmond conference, which turned into an article on Coding4Fun for those that might want to create a game-show at home or the office.
The two sessions I’m presenting are:
M15 What's New in Visual Studio 2010 Debugging
Date: Monday, November 15, 2010
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:15 PM
Visual Studio 2010 contains a variety of new debugging features to aid developers in creating bug-free software. In this session, we will explore many of these new features including IntelliTrace (historical debugging), breakpoint enhancements, new tools for debugging multi-threaded and parallel applications, enhancements to DataTips and watch windows, and new tools to better visualize and debug WPF applications and events. With these tools in hand, bugs don't stand a chance!
W13 Multi-touch Madness!
Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2010
Time: 1:45 PM – 3:00 PM
Level: Introductory to Intermediate
Multi-touch technology is popping up everywhere, most recently in Windows 7 and various .NET technologies. Windows 7 has been designed from the ground-up with multi-touch in mind, and the newest versions of WPF and Silverlight are multi-touch capable as well. In this session I will take you through the 4 biggest areas of Microsoft multi-touch technology: Windows 7, WPF 4, Silverlight, and Surface, including the forthcoming Surface Toolkit for Windows Touch. You will learn how to make your applications multi-touch aware and capable using each of these platforms, how to handle gestures and manipulations properly across platforms, and learn where multi-touch is heading in the future with regard to Microsoft development.
