Did you know that you can get almost all the literature of MIT’s courseware directly from their courseware website? Just click this link anduse all this well-written courseware or your own good.
Honestly now, great job MIT for having these posted on-line.
After attending last year’s ITCamp oganized in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, I was definite that I would attend this year again, even though I will have to leave for Cluj-Napoca on my b-day party (which I absolutely hate, because in the last 6 years, faith made it like that the my b-day would always find in a foreign city or country).
Anyway, back to ITCamp 2013. ITCamp is a developer and sysadmin conference where Microsoft technologies (and related to Microsoft technologies – such as Linux ) are presented by industry experts (technology gurus, MVPs, Microsoft Evangelists, ex-Microsoft employees, technology enthusiasts etc.). On their agenda you will find things like ‘Building Elastic, Autoscalable Solutions with Windows Azure‘, ‘Developing for Windows 8 with F# and WebSharper‘, ‘MVC – Common pitfalls and how to resolve them‘, ‘Transact-SQL from 0 to SQL Server 2012‘, ‘Kinect for Windows – Designing Software for Gesture & Voice Controlled User Interfaces‘ and so many other cool things you might actually be interested in!
Last but definitely not least, Richard Campbell and Tim Huckaby are also among the speakers!
Do google ITCamp or go straight to http://itcamp.ro, check the agenda out and register asap: seats are already filling up
A great interview you should definittely check out when you have 10 minutes spare time.
David Gristwood talk to David Chappell
There’s a lot to say in very short time:
- Attended Build 2012 in Redmond! Awesome!!! I really have to tell you more about how well MS organizes such events!
- Passed the Professional Scrum Master I assesment! Here comes # 2!
- Passes 70-483 exam from Microsoft. And if you’re wondering, the answer is no. They didn’t publish the preparation materials yet, nor the self-paced training kits nor anything! And for the sake of writing some more stuff here, of course I didn’t study for a minute for this exam, since I took it while attending Build 2012
- Last but definittely not least, I got married too!
As for Build 2012, I had the chance to talk to Mark Russinovich, the guy responsible for Sysinternals and one of the guys on the Azure team (for two years already), who had an extraordinary talk on the internal stuff regarding Windows Azure, with Scott Guthrie, the Microsoft corporate VP for the Developer Division who had some great talks on Windows Azure and with lots and lots of developers on the Microsoft campus about Windows 8 (regarding Store apps, ReFS, power management etc.), Azure Storage, SQL Databases on Windows Azure, VS 2012 and also to some MS Parterners.
I absolutely loved the conference and I’m definittely willing to tell you more about it, if you want! Just contact me and we’ll gradly chat about it!
