I’ll be giving a talk at the ACS (in Sydney CBD) on 1 October, about REST, designing good RESTful systems and implementing them in .NET. It will be quite similar to the REST Patterns in .NET talk I gave at Tech Ed. For more information, please check out the blurb at the ACS site.

BarCamp Sydney is two days long this year, and will span the whole of the coming weekend (5-6 April). I’ll be there on Saturday. It’s usually quite a fun event, lots of good sessions and you’re quite free to move around and find something that interests you. Part of the BarCamp manifesto is that you should also contribute as well as listen – I’ll probably give a JRuby talk and demo.
Hope to see you at BarCamp!
I’ll be giving a talk at an ACS event after work on Wed next week (3rd October). Here’s the blurb:
A tasty take on WPF, WCF, LINQ and O-R Mapping
An exploration of some of the freshest, tastiest and most powerful features in .NET 3.5 through implementing a useful application.
You’ll take away an understanding of what’s in .NET 3.5 and how to build online and offline applications with the new technology stack supported by Visual Studio 2008 (Orcas Beta 2).
Norman Selfe Room,
280 Pitt St Sydney (Sydney Mechanics School of Arts)
6:15pm, 3rd October 2007

Hope you can come 🙂
WebJam is usually quite fun. The premise is that a large group of people meet in a pub, have a few drinks (often sponsored by some generous company) and see quite a number of presenters who have 3 minutes each to show off cool, web-related stuff they’ve done recently. The next one is this Saturday. Details as follows:
Place: Bar Broadway (opposite UTS)
Date: 29 Sept 07
I’m planning to go, and also to give a 3 minute presentation on my new free wedding registry site.
Hope to see you there!
It is BarCamp in Sydney this Saturday. I haven’t been to one of these unconference style events before, but I’ve heard good things about it from my colleagues. I’m quite excited to go along and see what it is like.
If you’re in Sydney and interested in stopping by, details are as follows:
When: Sat 25th August 2007 from about 9am
Where: University of Technology, Sydney (Jones St entrance)
One of the novel aspects of BarCamp is that all participants are encouraged to present or start a discussion around something that interests them. For my part, depending on what people are interested in, I was thinking of one of the following:
- new stuff in the .net space (C# 3.0, .NET 3.5, LINQ, WPF, WCF, etc) and showing some demos
- giving a bit of a Ruby/JRuby introduction with help from Ola’s JavaBin slides
- or, if people are keen, a discussion around JRuby vs C# 3 vs Java vs ?? and their stacks for different situations and problems
By the way, the conference is free, and it is not too late to sign up 🙂
Hope to see you there!
