I had a great time at Jax Code Impact over the weekend. Many thanks to Bayer and Brandy for putting together a free, enjoyable, and educational Saturday conference. As a first year conference, it was impressive to see more than 300 people registered for six tracks of Microsoft-focused presentations. Kevin Wolf was a big hit with his quadcopters, 3-D printer, and oculus rift. I personally enjoyed two separate talks on Redis by Henry Lee and Steve Danielson.

I talked about the Windows Azure Service Bus offerings, and hit on topics such as Relays, Queues, Topics, WCF bindings, Pub/Sub, AMQP, and of course some Cloud Design Patterns. 

Here are the slides and code demos from my talk:

I had a great time at Global Windows Azure Bootcamp (GWAB) in Jacksonville, FL. I got to meet a bunch of cool people and discuss Azure topics all day. Free food, Bold Bean coffee, and beer helped to create the perfect geekfest atmosphere. I can’t wait for the next Azure event!

I talked about Windows Azure Data Services, and hit on topics such as Tables, Blobs, Queues, Windows Azure SQL Database, and some Cloud Design Patterns. The links below are the slides and code demos from my talk.

#SFLCC was an awesome event. It was the largest code camp I’ve ever attended, and I was extremely proud to be a part of it. Dave and Rainer did a fabulous job, and made putting on a huge event like this look really easy. My session had many interested, interesting, and enthusiastic developers in attendance. 70 minutes simply isn’t enough time to have gotten into the distributed computing example. The download below contains the Digipede grid computing example. If you would like to get started with Digipede, you can request a Developer Edition license. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about Digipede, distributed computing, or .NET parallel extensions.
