The sessions have been selected for DevTeach
and I was pleased to see one of mine accepted. I'll do my "Advanced Windows 7 Programming" session:
Windows 7 development in managed code can
be very simple, especially for those using the Windows API Code Pack. But
there's more! Your integration with Windows 7 doesn't have to be limited to
simple interactions with the new API. This session goes beyond the simple and
into aspects of Windows 7 development that have in the past been left for you to
explore on your own. See how to create a jumplist with a task that delivers a
command to your application, as Messenger and Outlook do. Explore a simple and
powerful recipe for connecting to Restart and Recovery with minimal effort.
Discover how Trigger Started Services can reduce your power footprint while
giving your users better responsiveness. Explore all that Libraries has to offer
beyond "File Open" and why using a library is a better approach than having a
user setting for "save directory."
This is all managed code, C# and VB. The conference is after Tech Ed US this year, (Tech Ed is May 16-19, DevTeach is May 30 - June 3) so rather than you seeing a Tech Ed talk before the Tech Ed attendees do (my usual DevTeach offer) you can see a Tech Ed talk after it's been refined a bit by giving it to a Tech Ed audience. Even better!
Montreal in the early summer is a beautiful place and there's a great crop of speakers coming! Many are friends, all are top-notch. Sign up now
for only $899 Canadian for the full 3 days! That's less than half the price of Tech Ed, and you travel only to Montreal. If you're a developer, give this conference serious attention. Of course, if you can do both Tech Ed and DevTeach, you will gain maximum benefit and a chance to learn all that is current in our field. That's my May 2011 plan.
