Invited Into MSDN Canada Speakers Bureau

Due to my lack of posts lately, I am sure that most people have realized that I have been extremely busy for the last couple of weeks. Along with vacation, I am also trying to secure a good contract that I can jump into. So obviously my efforts are currently focused around securing an income for the family !!!

Amidst the hustle and bustle, it is a great honor to be able to announce that I have been invited to become a member of the MSDN Canada Speakers bureau!! This means that user groups around Canada can now ask to have me come and speak at their meetings and (from what I gather) have the event covered by Microsoft!!

As far as topics go, here is an initial list of some presentations I could deliver:

  • Refactoring - An Introduction
  • Test Driven Development In .Net - An Introduction
  • Test Driven Development With Mock Objects
  • Dependency Inversion Principle & Dependency Injection
  • Model View Presenter - A Better Way To Factor Your Presentation Layer
  • Patterns For Building An ORM in .Net
  • Design Patterns - An Introduction
  • Applied Continuous Integration with NAnt & CruiseControl .Net
  • Generics - They’re not just for collections
  • Applying Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture
  • Winforms test automation with NUnitForms
  • Refactoring with ReSharper

If you are interested in having me speak at one of your user groups, feel free to get in contact with me!!
