Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
The Heartland Developers Conference has come to Minneapolis and things start kicking off tonight with the pre-conference party, down at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis.

I attended the HDC last year in Omaha as a representative of Magenic and enjoyed it so much I decided to speak at the event this year (both in Minneapolis and Omaha.)

I'm speaking on Monday and my time slot has some pretty tough competition with Andrew Troelson discussing LINQ Query Internals and Amanda Laucher discussing Real World F#. If I wasn't speaking at the same time, I would definitely be sitting in Amanda's session. She's a good friend of mine and an excellent presenter (and F# is pretty neat stuff too.)

In addition to these sessions, Monday also features a keynote on the present and future of development (Rocky Lhotka, Magenic) and talks throughout the day on Silverlight 2.0, Reflection (Jason Bock, Magenic), the Managed Extensibility Framework & lots more... really compelling stuff.

Monday evening is the Developer Jam Party which I don't know much about but it sounds pretty interesting.

Tuesday looks equally promising, with a couple of really interesting topics from Ted Neward (customizing your .net app with scripts & pragmatic xml services) and a really useful session on open source .net tools from Javier Lozano. There's also a talk on ASP.NET MVC (Javier Lozano, again) which I'm looking forward to checking out.

It's going to be a great time. See you there! Posted on Sunday, September 28, 2008 1:36 PM General Interest | Back to top
