Check out this video I did with Tyler Dueck and Jason Smith at the Winnipeg Code Camp on how they used an Arduino device attached to a traffic light to allow it to be controlled by Twitter!

We will be also adding a little Agile spin to the talk focusing on the importance and ideal use of the underlying design patterns in an Agile software shop. I am also scheduled to present a similar topic at the upcoming South Florida Code Camp taking place on Saturday ...
In January 0f 2009 something crazy and awesome happened for me, SharePoint Saturday was born. I was a 26 year old girl from Saint Louis Missouri who was living in Olathe, KS. About 5 month prior I went to the most pivotal event in my career and life in Washington DC, the Regional SharePoint Conference, where I met Michael Lotter, Paul Galvin, Tony Lanni, Bob Fox, and Rachel Appel. Several months later I was visiting Michael at a code camp in Raleigh North Carolina and he told me we’re going to have ...
Click this link: http://sharepoint.microsoft... Notice at the bottom left-hand side of the page there is a SharePoint Saturday mention with the latest events. Now send a shout out to Susan Lennon, Michael Lotter, Eric Harlan, Dux Raymon Sy, Kris Wagner, Josh Carlisle, and every other person who put in some form of effort to the SharePoint Saturday brand. We all worked hard for 3 years or more organizing, volunteering, speaking, sponsoring, or spreading the word ...

If you’re a software dev in Winnipeg, make sure to mark Saturday Feb 25th 2012 on your calendar as that’s when the Winnipeg Code Camp will be happening!

I will be speaking at the Carolina Code Camp this weekend http://codecamp.developersg... There will be 45 sessions by 30 different speakers spread over 9 tracks. It should be a good time. The biggest problem for anyone attending is deciding which sessions to go to. With 9 tracks there will be many great sessions going on at the same time. From a presenter perspective, that ups the ante. I am very much aware that when I am speaking there are 8 other folks that you could be hearing instead. ...
I’ve had great first quarter working with AgileThought in the Tampa, FL office. Are you still moving in the direction you set out on or have your plans shifted? If there is a change, are you still in the right place to do so? Those were the questions I asked myself, before I began my transition. I’ve spend considerable amount of time thinking of where I am taking my career [different story for a different post] and decided to continue my story at AgileThought. I’ve met with the senior leadership ...

Thanks to everyone who attended my session at Philly Code Camp 2011.1. It was a very fun and interactive session for me, and I hope it was an informative and helpful session for you as well. I apologize for the delay in getting the presentation materials uploaded since I was busy catching up with work from last week this morning. The Database backup file (.bak) included in the zip file will have to be restored on your SQL Server. Please let me know if anything doesn't run (or) compile or you are ...
Well, another Philly Code Camp has come and gone, and it was a great time. I made it a one-day trip, which I think I'm getting too old to keep doing. Left the house at 4 AM from Pittsburgh, made it to Philly by 8:15 AM; I left around 4 PM and got home by 9 PM (no thanks to my TomTom, which took me on a scenic tour of old town Fort Washington). I was expecting a nice and relaxing day at Philly Code Camp where I had one talk (A Beginner's Guide to LINQ) at 2 PM; but I got an email from Marc Ziss asking ...
Andy Warren (@sqlandy) , Microsoft MVP, was our March speaker at the West Palm Beach .Net User Group. Andy spoke about SQL Statistics and answered all our SQL questions. We appreciate Andy's long drive from Orlando to come speak at our South Florida group and his commitment to sharing his knowledge regardless of the distance barrier. The group enjoyed free pizza brought to us by our group coordinator Venkat Subramanian. It is no easy task running around to buy food for the group, especially after ...
I’ll be speaking at a few upcoming events: Saturday March 19th 2011 IT Camp Saturday Tampa http://itcampsaturday.com/t...

I had fun presenting “What’s new in Entity Framework 4” at the Winnipeg Code Camp today. I mentioned some resources on my deck that I thought I’d include here in my blog. •EF 4.0 Hands on Labs •EF CTP 5 (has the new DbContext and CodeFirst support) •MSDN Data Developer Center: MSDN.com/Data •ADO.NET Team Blog •EF Design Blog •How to choose an inheritance strategy Programming Entity Framework, Second Edition by Julia Lerman ...
As some may have noticed, I have taken a liking to Ruby (and Rails in particular) quite a bit recently. This last weekend I spoke at the NYC Code Camp on a comparison of ASP.NET and Rails as well as an intro to Entity Framework talk. I am speaking at RubyNation in April and have submitted to other ruby conferences around the area and I am also doing a Rails and MongoDB talk at the Philly Code Camp in April. Before you start to think this is my "I'm leaving .NET post", which it isn't so I need to ...
It is that time again. Time to polish up you presentation skills on your favorite language or technology features. The Chicago Code Camp is accepting proposals for presentations. Show everyone in the Chicago area what you know and submit your own. I really enjoyed presenting last year and just had to submit a proposal for this year. This time around my topic is Increasing Collaboration with Windows Phone 7, SharePoint 2010 and Office Open XML. I had a much longer title but the site forced me to shorten ...
Later this week, I will be heading to our annual South Florida .Net Code Camp, an all-day free “Geek Fest” taking place on February 12th, 2011.This year’s code camp will be conveniently taking place at Nova Southeastern University in Ft Lauderdale.

My grandmother wanted me to make her a video when she heard I got MVP in SharePoint Server of one of my sessions. I decided I haven’t visited in two years, so maybe I can do an in person session.

I've been writing software for a while and recently had an opportunity to broaden my horizons and start developing for iOS. We decided to leverage, as much as possible, our existing skills and use MonoTouch and MonoDevelop by Novell. For those of you who do not know, Mono is a .NET port originally designed for Linux but adapted for other platforms as well. MonoTouch is a port specifically for building iOS applications using the .NET framework. MonoDroid is a port (in CTP-esque release) for Android. ...
In early 2010, I had blogged and shared my excitement as I was about to embark on a new journey relocating to South Florida. As I settled down and adjusted to my new life, I was presented with an opportunity to get actively involved and volunteer in the local Florida .Net and Project Management communities. I have since devoted a significant portion of my time to community initiatives, coordinating the West Palm Beach .Net User Group, volunteering as a member of the INETA Speaker’s Bureau and traveling ...
Each year for the last seven Wagga Wagga hosts the annual Code Camp Oz. It is the largest community .NET conference in Australia. For reasons I don’t understand the organisers choose to hold ccoz in Wagga; a location that is inconvenient to everyone. My preferred technique to get there is to fly to Canberra and drive a hire car to Wagga. This year I took advantage of some time in Canberra to catch up with a friend and then work on my presentation, before heading to Wagga Friday night. Aaron Powell ...
I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the Tampa .Net Code Camp 2010. I covered MVC3 and NuGet. I also leveraged the lunch break to show most of Scott Hanselman’s highly rated open source PDC10 session. To watch Scott’s video please visit: http://www.hanselman.com/bl... Mr and Mrs. Keith Kabza and the VisualGov team’s hard work was quiet visible at the nicely organized event where all went smooth from early morning registration to ...
So I had a great time at this past weekend's Central Maryland Code Camp (CMAP). I was honored that the organizers chose two of my talks for their schedule (Intro to Threading and A Beginner's Guide to LINQ). I have to admit that I didn't manage my time very well with the Intro to Threading talk; and, as a result, I didn't really get to my favorite code samples. But I feel like I came back strong with my LINQ talk and managed the clock pretty well. We'll see when the evals come in. My session materials, ...

Thanks to all those who attended my session Retrofit WebForms with ASP.NET MVC at the Richmond Code Camp 2010.2. To be honest, it was my very first time speaking at a big event like this and I was quite nervous during it. I realized after the demo that I went through the topics quite faster than I should. Nonetheless, I hope my session was helpful and you learned something from it. Thank you all for asking very good questions so I can improve my presentation for next time. Please let me know if you ...
Regular readers may have noticed that my blogging activity has slowed down considerably. I’m hoping to pick back up and start posting more soon, but until then I wanted to make sure everyone knows that I am still active…there have been other things that have been consuming my time. First, my Sams Teach Yourself Visual C# 2010 in 24 Hours book came out, officially on the shelves in August although content was complete in late February. Shortly after the book came out, I started working on an article ...

Sam Abraham (Me) had the great pleasure of attending and participating at the SW FL .Net Code Camp which took place on September 25, 2010 at Florida Gulf Coast University, Estero, FL. I spoke at two sessions: “ASP.Net MVC” and “SSIS for C# Developers”. I was pleasantly surprised with the high turnout at the MVC session despite the fact that it was scheduled early on that Saturday (8:45 AM). This highlights the growing interest in ASP.Net MVC and its related suite of tools such as Razor, Web Pages ...

Code camps are a great resource for the local development community. They provide developers and speakers (who are almost always local developers as well) a way to interact and learn about topics they otherwise might not have an opportunity. As a speaker, it is always great to see new people in my talks and answer questions since in almost every talk, someone asks a question I haven’t heard before. One of the things that most speakers, including myself, like getting is feedback. We want to know what ...
Sam Abraham (Me) will be speaking at The South West Florida .Net Code Camp taking place on Saturday, September 25th, 2010. I will be sharing two topics: “SSIS for C# Developers” and “Introduction to ASP.Net MVC”. With so many great speakers covering a wide variety of today’s hottest technologies, the event is bound to be a great learning experience for all. Looking forward to attending as many talks as my brain can take. :) See you all there! --Sam Abraham Here are the abstract for my scheduled talks: ...

Technorati Tags: jQuery,ASP.NET,ASP.NET MVC,conferences I was excited yesterday to learn of two upcoming virtual online conferences about topics in which I'm very interested. The first one I heard about was mvcConf, the Virtual ASP.NET MVC Conference - Thursday, July 22. From the website: mvcConf is a virtual conference focused on one thing. Writing awesome applications on top of the ASP.Net MVC framework. The event will be free to attend, and your brain will explode from taking in so much hard core ...
I attended my first CodeStock this year and in short it was awesome. Like 100 billion hot dogs awesome. The travel there was crazy to say the least, but I met lots of new people, had a session go well and recorded 3 podcasts. So that is the short version. If you are on twitter and either follow me or followed the #codestock hash tag, you probably saw my airline craziness in Philly. It all started on Monday. We had a client deliverable on Wednesday morning and due to some things that happened I only ...
A big thanks to everyone who attended my “Building Extensible Silverlight Apps with MEF” session today at NoVa Code Camp 2010.1.

My C# 4.0 presentation recorded at the Philly.NET Code Camp was posted on Channel 9 today. You can view it here.

Seattle Code Camp was a two-day intensive software development conference. Ostensibly a technology agnostic event the reality is that code camp continues to focus on Microsoft technologies. Notable exceptions were talks on Ruby and iPhone development. If you were not able to attend you can view all of the sessions online. Code Camp was a good opportunity to catch up with my friends from last weekend’s Alt.NET conference and also to participate in some great sessions ...
I just got back (a few hours ago) from Minneapolis, where I was speaking at the Twin Cities Code Camp 8. I’d never been to a Twin Cities Code Camp, and I have always heard such great things, so I submitted and got accepted to speak. The conference (what I got to see) was great. My talk was pretty short on people, but there are many reasons for that. First, I spoke opposite Donn Felker (speaking about developing for Android) and Keith Dahlby (speaking about Dynamic .NET). So of course, my talk is ...
Hey all. I am still here. Still kickin’. I’ve been swamped with work and community stuff. But I wanted to post about some of the things going on. Just finished up Twin Cities Code Camp 8, and had a blast! Always good to see these guys. First of all, up-coming speaking engagements: Iowa Code Camp – May 1st in Iowa City, IA [more info] DevLink – August 5-7 in Nashville, TN [more info] Plus I am organizing a second developer’s conference in Kansas City. Kansas City Developer’s Conference (KCDC) – June ...

For those who don't already know, yesterday I received my first Microsoft MVP Award in Data Platform Development. With less than 5,000 MVPs in the world overall and about 20 in the Data Platform category, saying I am honored would be an understatement. From the first time I spoke at a code camp, I was totally hooked and have had a blast travelling around the east coast speaking at code camps and users groups. I'd like to take the time to thank Dani Diaz (@danidiaz) for the nomination and everyone ...
