I will be giving the following talks in November and December:
Coding: Get Back to the Basics
Abstract: In the ever-changing world of software development, we must constantly keep up with new technologies. In fact, so much time is spent absorbing new APIs, documentation and hype that we are often left with very little time to improve our coding skills. This session will some discuss general ways to improve code quality that apply to all languages. In addition, we’ll cover several ways to use C# 2.0 (and some future C# 3.0) features to create readable and elegant code.

Getting to Know Generics
Abstract: Since the release of the .NET Framework 2.0, generics have been a hot topic. But, beyond the basic generic collection classes, they can be challenging to understand and use properly. This session delves into less-obvious uses of generics to create elegant and flexible code. Topics covered include defining generic types and methods, consuming generics and generic constraints. Along the way, we will explore some of the pitfalls of generic development and highlight some of the lesser-known generic nuggets found in the .NET Framework.
