I had a great time at my Pragmatic .NET Architecture workshop yesterday at Software Architect 2011 in London – thank you very much to everybody who was there! As promised, I’m putting up the slides and the concept document, as far as we developed it during the day. Here you go:PragmaticNETArchitecture-SA2011.zip
This is weird… I had entirely forgotten about putting up the slides and samples from last week’s BASTA! 2011 conference – because I was completely convinced I had already done so! I had some trouble getting proper internet connectivity in the days following the event, and I abandoned several attempts to upload the files to my server, and then somehow my mind auto-applied a great big DONE to the task. I apologize for the delay. BASTA! was a great event again – larger than ever, apparently – and here’s a thank you to those of you who made it to one of my talks. Like I said during my presentations, if you have any thoughts you’d like to discuss, or questions of any kind, send me email!
Here are the files with slides and samples now:
On September 29, I’ll be in Braunschweig, Germany, to deliver a talk called Pragmatic Architecture. This is a short version of my popular workshop, which I’m currently doing at various conferences in Europe. Unfortunately for my English language readers, the talk will be in German – but you may be able to see the whole thing in English at this year’s Software Architect conference in London! Here are the infos about the event in Braunschweig. I hope to see you there! Thanks to the user group organizers and to INETA Europe for making this happen!
I was trying to ask this question on Twitter, but that didn’t seem to work out well - many people use different approaches for something vaguely similar to what I’m asking, and it seems impossible to explain the details in 140 chars.
Solution at the bottom now.
Last week I did a webinar for DevExpress on XPO, their object/relational mapping product. It went well, I had fun, and around 60 or so people stayed till the end, so it can’t have been half bad! 😉 If you would like to see the webinar, it’s now up on the DevExpress site – click this link to watch it. I had a few requests for the samples I was using and writing during the webinar, so I’m making them available for download. Have fun!

Mehul just posted about it: there’s a free DevExpress XPO webinar coming up on March 31st, 2011. Presented by, well, me 😃 Many of you may remember that I and XPO go way back, and during my time at DevExpress I had a chance to work with the team that made the product and, so I hope, push it a little in the right direction. These days, XPO is still a product I like to use and to recommend to my consulting clients [LINK REMOVED] – together with XAF or on its own, it’s usually my .NET data layer technology of choice. Recently added functionality in the area of multi-tier support have made it a lot stronger again. My Expert XPO training class [LINK REMOVED] is taking place in London, UK, in May 2011, so if you’re interested, please follow the link and check it out. Meanwhile, if you’re on the fence, or just generally interested in what’s new and what’s cool, take the time to join me for the webinar!
Next week, on the evening of February 17th, I’ll be doing a talk for the .NET Usergroup Frankfurt in Bad Homburg, Germany. The title is Dynamik in .NET 4.0 (that’s not a spelling mistake, that’s German – but you can guess what it means). They tell me you really need to sign up for this, but there are currently seats available. Follow this link to a page with details about the event, or go to the main page for the user group, which has a link to sign up. I hope to see you there!
