Here are some talks I and my Neudesic colleageus are giving on web, cloud, and programming at SoCal Code Camp this weekend in Orange County:
SoCal Code Camp
Sat Jan 28 2012 - Sun Jan 29 2012
Mobile & Global with HTML5, MVC and Windows Azure
David Pallmann (@davidpallmann) Sat Jan 28 12:15p
What happens when the web meets the cloud? The modern web (HTML5, mobile devices) is revolutioning the front end and our experiences, while at the same time the cloud (cloud computing, social networks) is revolutioning the back end. Putting them together gives you web-cloud applications that can run anywhere and everywhere.
In this session you'll see how to create solutions that are "mobile & global" by combining HTML5, mobile devices, and open standards on the web client with the MS web platform, Windows Azure cloud computing, and social networking on the web server. We'll progressively develop a "mobile & global" application in 7 steps, starting with design comps and ending with global deployment on 3 continents.
Windows Azure Design Patterns
Mickey Williams (@mickeyw) Sat Jan 28 2:45p
In order to design great cloud solutions architects need to understand the design patterns intrinsic to their cloud platform. In this session we will review the design patterns inherent in the Windows Azure platform services, followed by a discussion of application patterns for combining those services. Design patterns will be reviewed for compute, storage, relational data, communication, security, and networking. Key patterns will be illustrated with application examples.
Using Lucene for Full-Text Search in Azure
Mickey Williams (@mickeyw) Sat Jan 28 4:00p
SQL Azure does not currently support full-text indexing. In this talk, we will walk through the use of Lucene to provide full-text search capabilities.
F# - Functional Programming Fundamentals
Oleksiy Tereshchenko Sat Jan 28 4:00p
F# is functional programming language. Originally, developed by Microsoft Research. Iit is fully supported by Microsoft Development Division in Visual Studio 2010. Presentation will provide overview of the language and include fundamental programming concepts. Attendees will be able to understand what it is about F# that is interesting and exciting, even if they can’t necessarily see how to apply it themselves just yet.
F# - Functional Programming Progamming Techniques
Oleksiy Tereshchenko Sun Jan 29 9:00a
F# is functional programming language. Originally, developed by Microsoft Research, it is fully supported by Microsoft Development Division in Visual Studio 2010. Presentation will provide overview of the functional programming techniques and demonstrate them using calculator parser. Attendees will be able to experience functional style development.
