Sam Abraham Software Engineer/Architect: Putting Customers First
Sam Abraham (Me) will be speaking at the SoFla PDC 2010 hosted by the Gold Coast and Miami .Net User Groups in Boca Raton, Florida on October 28th, 2010. The local PDC event will run in parallel to and will embrace some of the content covered and unveiled at the main PDC 2010 hosted in Redmond. This would be my third speaking event in a quiet busy October 2010 and my second visit as speaker to the Gold Coast .Net User’s Group for the month of October.
I will be covering WebMatrix, Razor Syntax, ASP.Net Web Pages Helpers, IIS Express, ASP.Net MVC 3 and NuPack with brief demos as well as presentation slides content showcasing the value each brings. Audience participation and input is encouraged and will be solicited.
All the aforementioned technologies share a few common characteristics:
  • Free. None requires a license fee.
  • Open and transparent. Everybody knows where these technologies came from, where they are at today and where they are heading tomorrow with ample information readily available online
  • Open Source. One can learn internals as well as extend and fix bugs as needed without having to wait for a next official release.
  • Light weight and efficient. All tools focus on saving development time while improving the efficiency of the development process.
  • Listens to feedback. While all Microsoft products and groups have multiple communication channels for community feedback, these aforementioned technologies are particularly notable for being mainly community driven.
  • Welcomes outside contributions. NuPack is a great example of a new convenient tool that is open to developers outside of Microsoft to contribute to. The MVCContrib library is another great example of how community involvement can supplement the base MVC feature set.
I look forward to meeting everyone at the SoFla PDC 2010 and to an engaging discussion of the latest and greatest technologies at the event.
