Slides from St. Louis Day of .NET 2013

by on November 18, 2013

Another amazing year for the St. Louis Day of .NET. We set a new attendance record this weekend with over 1000 attendees. I want to give a big shout out to the organizers, speakers, and sponsors for the world class experience they delivered and a HUGE thank you to the attendees, especially those who attended my sessions and dropped by the booth to meet me and the Polaris team.

Here are the slides and downloads from my sessions:

Application Architecture Jumpstart

Document download: Patterns & Practices Application Architecture Guide 2.0.

 

Advanced OOP – Laws, Principles, Idioms

Source code download: Advanced OOP Samples.

I also wanted to thank my awesome team at Polaris Solutions (Josh Gillespie, Brian Yuan, Angela Dugan, Landan Rotter, Dave Seng, and Chris Kadel) for their hard work at the conference as well. Great job everyone!
