I already teased this a bit in my rundown on what to expect from this years Orlando Code Camp. Now, I am able to tell you specifically which sessions will be broadcast out to the world for your enjoyment. This is very exciting for us for a couple of reasons. First, this is a new thing for us to do and it’s a very welcome challenge to overcome for this years code camp. Second, Microsoft has honored our code camp with being the very first code camp to ever do this. With numerous code camps happening all over of the world each month, we are very truly honored. And don’t worry… We are well aware of the pressure that this brings. :)
All day long, the folks at Microsoft are helping us to stream a high-quality video feed of 6 of the sessions at the code camp. The first session begins at 8:30 AM EST. If you’re in another time zone, adjust your alarm clocks and partying accordingly.
Session 1: Installing and Upgrading DotNetNuke and DNN Modules, Will Strohl 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM EST There are quite a few misconceptions out there about the level of difficulty when installing and upgrading DotNetNuke®, we'll walk you through the entire installation and upgrade process outlining some of the common problems and solutions.
Session 2: Scalable Cloud Applications with Table Storage, Esteban Garcia 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM EST Learn how to take advantage of Windows Azure Table storage to manage your data at a fraction of the cost and with great scalability. We'll create a sample application and explore the different features of table storage on your dev machine and in the cloud.
Session 3: Getting RAD with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, Stan Schultes 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST This demo-intensive session covers the improved support for building distributed business applications in VS2010. We'll focus on some of the improvements and new advanced features.
Session 4: Windows Phone 7, Nikita Polyakov (not pictured) and Kevin D. Wolf 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST There really isn’t anything that they are allowed to say about this session yet, because the content of their topic has been highly confidential until now. They are talking about some of the things announced about Windows Phone 7 at Mix.
Session 5: Microsoft ASP.NET MVC Custom View Helpers, Sayed Hashimi 2:15 PM – 3:15 PM EST If you've been using ASP.NET MVC then you've certainly been using some of the built in view helper methods that are available. We'll take an in-depth look at how you can easily and effectively create your own view helpers and discuss how the default view helpers were created and the benefits that they provide.
Session 6: Design for Developers, Diane Leeper 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose. It’s also the secret weapon of your developer toolkit. Learn 5 of the key fundamentals of design and how they can help your applications stand out.
If you’re physically attending this event, these sessions will not be in the same room as the rest of the sessions that are in the same track. Due to the technical needs to broadcast these sessions, they will be in another room, as if they were all part of the same track. We will let you know what room to go to on the day of the event – just like the rest of the tracks.
If you’re not excited about this, I don’t know what could get you excited! You have a small mix of everything that you’d want in a day of learning about various Microsoft technologies.
