Boston Code Camp Presentation

by Jason Haley 20. October 2013 14:18

I had a good time at Boston Code Camp yesterday, it was nice catching up with some friends that I seem to only get to see at Code Camps these days.

For those of you who went to my talk, Building Single Page Applications with Knockout, Durandal and Friends, the presentation can be found at: http://jasonhaley.com/files/BuildingSPA.pptx

I fixed my mistyped email address in the footer … DOH!

I’m planning on writing up a blog entry that walks you through the complete demo that I didn’t get to finish – so stay tuned.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. 

I know one of you mentioned you emailed me … but I didn’t received it – so I’m guess that you emailed it to the misspelled one I had on the slides – sorry about that, totally my fault …

Code Camp 14 Slides and Source Code

by Jason Haley 8. October 2010 11:31

Last weekend I presented three talks as the New England Code Camp 14 on three completely different topics (and all new for the Code Camp too).  Here are the links the the slides, source code and some other information for those of you who attended the talks:

A Simple WebSite Migration to the Cloud – Amazon vs. Azure

Slides: Amazon vs Azure

Code (BIG file): Code_AzureAmazon.zip

This was a good talk, there was quite a bit of audience interaction and questions about Amazon … which was good – the presentation was written with an assumption that I could compare it to Azure.  It would have taken a lot more time if I had to introduce both.

Going Independent – Lessons Learned in the First Year of an Independent Consultant

Slides: Going Independent

This was a fun somewhat naked talk about my experiences of the last year.  The ugly, bad and good … where I got choked up talking about the good.  Weird I practiced the talk 3 times in the previous week and never had a problem with it … must have been a game day sort of thing.  Thanks to everyone who has commented on this talk, I’m glad you liked it.

Using Alternative View Engines with ASP.NET MVC

Slides: Using Alternative View Engines

Source Code is on CodePlex: nerddinner.codeplex.com

Related Article is on Coding4Fun: Developer Review - Four ASP.NET MVC View Engines

This talk was towards the end of the day and was a smaller crowd – with reason – it is a very narrow focused talk.  I have to thank 3 people for making this talk happen Greg Duncan, Dan Fernandez and Clint Rutkas … without being asked to write the Coding4Fun article/posting this presentation wouldn’t have happened.
