I [heart] code! .NET musings from the chick side
This year Codestock is selecting their sessions by attendee votes. As people register for Codestock, they are are asked to select the sessions that they would most like to see. While I think this is a way cool and awesome method for selection, it is driving me crazy wondering what the results will be!!

Here are the sessions that I have submitted. If you would like to see these at Codestock, register online and vote for me!!


Speaker Name    Kirstin Juhl
Session Name    WPF Databinding ++
Technology    WPF
Level    Intermediate
Length (Reg, Ext, Both)    Reg
Abstract   
Everyone knows that WPF takes databinding  to a new level. But just how cool does it get? In this presentation learn about observable collections, commanding, and complex nested collection binding. A sample application uses the same, easily understandable example (an address book application) to work through increasingly complicated scenarios and demonstrates how to use WPF in several data use case scenarios.



Speaker Name    Kirstin Juhl
Session Name    Wading into WPF and Databinding
Technology    WPF
Level    Beginner
Length (Reg, Ext, Both)    Reg
Abstract    You have heard about WPF and databinding in the XAML, but you are hesitant to dive in. In this presentation, stick your toe into the water and see WPF databinding in action. In this presentation we will build a simple WPF address book from scratch and you see how you can go from zero to databound in less than 60 minutes.



Speaker Name    Kirstin Juhl
Session Name    Writing Good Unit Tests
Technology    Application Development Best Practices
Level    Intermediate
Length (Reg, Ext, Both)    Reg
Abstract    Unit Testing is good. Writing good Unit Tests is hard. In this session we will explore how to write unit that accelerate your development rather than hinder it. We discuss how good unit tests can drive good practices into your application development from the bottom up.  Prepare to engage in a lively discussion on what makes good and bad unit tests. Please leave sharp objects at home!


Speaker Name    Kirstin Juhl
Session Name    Introduction to Unit Testing
Technology    Application Development Best Practices
Level    Beginner
Length (Reg, Ext, Both)    Reg
Abstract    This session will introduce attendees to the art and practice of Unit Testing. We will cover the basic fundamentals of what units are and why and how they should be used.  The presentation will cover common tools used in unit testing and contain a brief discussion of Unit Testing within the Test-Driven-Development context. We explore the tools and write some basic unit tests, and watch them run, fail, and pass.


Speaker Name    Kirstin Juhl
Session Name    Learning NHibernate with Castle  Active Record
Technology    NHibernate
Level    Intermediate
Length (Reg, Ext, Both)    Reg
Abstract    Castle is an open source implementation of the Active Record pattern. This framework sits on top of NHibernate and wraps much of NHibernate’s complexity, making it an ideal vehicle for introducing yourself to NHibernate. In this presentation, we will build a business/data layer from scratch, then take a deep dive into the code to see what is going on in the Active Record framework and how it uses Nhibernate.


Speaker Name    Kirstin Juhl
Session Name    Learning NHbernate with code generation
Technology    NHibernate
Level    Intermediate
Length (Reg, Ext, Both)    Reg
Abstract    NHibernate is an open source data access framework that has gained many accolades from the development community. Learn how to flatten the initial slope of the NHibernate learning curve by using a code generation tool. In this presentation we will implement a working instance of NHibernate for an application within minutes, then explore how it works. See how to use code generation for the luxury of running NHibernate in your application using your examples and give you a leg up on understanding the framework.


Speaker Name    Kirstin Juhl
Session Name    Continuous Integration in your project… tomorrow!
Technology    Application Development Best Practices
Level    Beginner
Length (Reg, Ext, Both)    Reg
Abstract    Everyone knows that Continuous Integration is a good idea, yet many projects fail to implement this practice because “we don’t have time”. The reality is that you don’t have time to NOT implement Continuous Integration. This presentation will show how to implement Continuous Integration practices into your project no matter what phase you are in. An incremental implementation is often required when management has not “bought in” to Continuous Integration. Learn how to accomplish this in this presentation.
