1 Swamp Coast Overview
The Swamp Coast Code Camp #3 in SWFla is gonna be another stellar event. This code camp is @ FGCU which provided a nice venue. The best part of code camps is all the people that are there to talk tek with. I”m really looking forward to relaxin with my geek friends & learning a bunch. There are going to be some great sessions there some that I’m looking forward to seeing are mostly in WP7Dev such as:

Design for WP7 – Diane Leeper
Push Notification with Windows Phone 7 Jonas Stawski
WP7 – Tips & Tricks Kevin ‘WolfBytes’ Wolf

Special thanks to John Dunagan & all the people who volunteered to make this event possible.

2 Data Driven .NET App Session Overview
This year my session is going to Data Driven .NET Applications. This session will be fun with a ton of content. It’s meant for any skill level, the main concept we’re going to discuss is to have content of apps driven by a data source not just static. There will be a great mix of theory & code. Here is what I plan to discuss:

DB Driven Mindset - Static vs.. Data Drive Apps
DB Dev / T-SQL
Data Access ADO.NET
WP7 - XML RSS Data Source
