This weekend, October 15 and 16, the two day SoCal Code Camp is back at the University of Southern California (Fight on Trojans!). Because this is in our backyard, we will definitely be there. Our presence this time will not be limited to the usual manning of our table and saying hello to fellow ASP.NET developers. Yes, we will still have a table, so definitely please feel free to stop by, HOWEVER this year we decided to crank this thing to 11, so we will be presenting two sessions that are near and dear to our hearts.
Our first session will be presented by our in-house TFS guru, Joseph Jun; “Getting Started with Team Foundation Server”. We launched our hosted TFS solution last year and often times we get questions about how remotely hosted TFS works. In this session Joe will demonstrate some of the core functionality of TFS on a live, remotely hosted TFS server, including Build Server features. Joe’s presentation starts on Saturday morning at 8:45am, which may be a wee bit early but don’t fret, we will have coffee at our table. So prior to Joe’s talk, come by, grab a cup of coffee to get you going and then head off to listen and learn how to get started with Team Foundation Server.
Our second presentation, “Q&A with ASP.NET Web Hosting Provider, DiscountASP.NET,” will be presented by our very own Takeshi Eto, along with other members of the DiscountASP.NET staff. Essentially, this is your chance to grill the crap out of us. We will answer your questions about application development, server maintenance, domains, web hosting, the hosting industry – from our point of view as a hosting provider. Takeshi and some other members of our staff have been in the hosting industry for almost 15 years, so they’ve pretty much seen it all. They will give you straight, honest answers regarding the tough and competitive industry that is web hosting.
The SoCal Code Camp will also be packed with tons of other sessions throughout the weekend (last year, there were over 100 sessions) as well as Saturday night’s Geek Dinner at Casey’s Base and Grill. You are encouraged to get there early on Saturday morning as the first 150 who check-in will gain admittance to the dinner. Last but not at least, don’t forget about the giveaways and Sunday afternoon’s lunch and afternoon raffle prizes.
As always, code camps are FREE, but registration is appreciated. Click Here to register for the SoCal Code Camp. See you this weekend!
