ComponentOne sponsors Code PaLOUsa : recap

Code PaLOUsa 2013 was a great event and one to put on your radar for next year. It’s a two day event, with an optional pre con day. I got to tell you, this was an extremely well organized event with many great speakers and sessions. Not to mention it is held in Louisville, home of the Louisville Slugger museum! I actually bolted there right form the airport in time to catch the last tour of the day. I love baseball history. The tour sent chills up my spine with a walk down memory lane.  I’ve been to the the Baseball Hall of fame in Cooperstown, the Ted Williams hitter museum in Florida and this one completes the trifecta. Speaking of the trifecta, the weekend we were there, the first weekend in May, marked the start of all of the festivities leading up to the Kentucky derby, including hot air balloon races and the marathon. It was my first time in Louisville and was awesome with the smell of spring in the air. Great job to Chad Green and all of the conference organizers.

ComponentOne sponsors Code PaLOUsa this weekend!

After this weekend this, Louisville will never be the same as RussCamTV heads to Kentucky for this great event. I have heard so many good things about this conference and am looking forward to attending and speaking at this event. I am doing a session on Building a Windows 8 App from scratch with a sneak peak at some of the C1 Windows 8 WinRT XAML controls. For those new to Windows 8 Store app development, this is a killer session that you will enjoy. I have never been to Louisville before, so this will be another RussCam first! I am hoping to visit the Louisville Slugger factory at some point as well. I held those bats as a youngster in little league, as many have,  and high school ball (that was before aluminum bats). I wonder if they are still celebrating the Men’s NCAA tournament championship?

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.
