I had a great time presenting at the Victoria Code Camp this past Saturday. Over 100 developers attended the event at the scenic University of Victoria with lots of great talks by some awesome speakers, including a few from Alberta – Jean-Paul BoodhooDonald Belcham, and Justice Gray. They even let me of al people give two talks.  Nolan Zak and the rest of the organizing committee did a phenomenal job orchestrating the event and making sure everything ran smoothly. For those of you who attended my talks, you can find the slidedecks and demos here:

Tools of the Trade: Must-Have .NET Utilities (slides)*

ASP.NET Kung-Fu: Advanced Techniques and Idioms (slides & demos)

I would also like to thank JetBrains for sponsoring my talks by generously donating two copies of ReSharper as prizes. (I don’t work for JetBrains. I’m just a very happy customer!) Congratulations to the two winners, Joe and Robert. I hope you enjoy using ReSharper as much as I do. It’s a phenomenal product.

* The Tools of the Trade slides are in PowerPoint 2007 format (pptx). If you don’t have Office 2007, you can download the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack, which allows you to open/save Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 documents using Office 2003.
