ComponentOne sponsors Costa Rica SQL Saturday #189 : Recap

It was an incredible weekend with close to 300 attendees for the second annual SQL Saturday/Code Camp in beautiful Costa Rica. Plenty of great sessions and great speakers were on hand from all over. In fact, I  interviewed a good number of presenters from the US as well as Costa Rica. The SQL Saturday engine is a strong one I am finding, with many presenters traveling the circuit. I presented a session on building a Windows 8 app from scratch and showed the ComponentOne Tools, Studio for WinRT/XAML. The speaker dinner was sensational with a view like I have never seen before, way up high on a mountain looking down on San Jose. Hats off to Eduardo Castro and crew for flawless execution at this event! I love Costa Rica!

ComponentOne sponsors Costa Rica SQL Saturday / Code Camp this weekend!

It is great to go back to Costa Rica again this year as a sponsor for SQL Saturday 189! Last year GrapeCity sponsored and now, ComponentOne, a division of GrapeCity, will continue in sponsoring this unprecedented community event. Out of the gate last year they had to turn people away, as they hit the unbelievable 300 technical folks cap. Wow! I am presenting this year on Building a Windows 8 App From Scratch (English) and showing some of the Studio for WinRT XAML Controls. Here is the line up for sessions, and photos from last year and the Russcam episodes. My favorite is Part 3, where we take a trip to Jaco Beach with some incredible footage of crocodiles, road side fresh fruit stands, and a sunset like I have never seen. Such a beautiful country! I am packing now.
