Tulsa TechFest 2011

It’s that time of the year again… Time for Tulsa Tech Fest 2011!  I’ve had the pleasure of speaking at this conference for the past several years and it has always been a well-planned and orchestrated event.  If you are going to be around the Tulsa area next week (Friday, October 7th) then take the time to register (it’s FREE! although a food donation is requested – see the web site for details) and enjoy some great content throughout the day.

This year I will be presenting on the following topics:

  • Getting Started with the TFS Object Model - Microsoft's Team Foundation Server (TFS) is a very capable platform for integrating all aspects of the software development lifecycle (SDLC). There is a great deal of functionality provided out of the box that will handle the majority of a development team's needs. However, there are times when you need to extend the functionality of TFS to handle scenarios not anticipated by Microsoft (or they just didn’t have the time to get them built into the product). This session will cover the common APIs provided by the TFS Object Model and provide the knowledge needed to get started developing with TFS right away.

  • Visual Studio v.Next: A Look at What's Coming - Visual Studio 2010 was released a year and a half ago but Microsoft has been hard at work on the next release. This talk will take a look at the myriad features that are being incorporated into the next version of Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server. Some of these features are even available today for use within Visual Studio 2010. If you want to get a peek at what's coming in Visual Studio v.Next (a.k.a. "Dev11"), then check out this session.

When: Friday, October 7th with check in starting at 08:00.
Where: OSU-Tulsa, 700 North Greenwood Ave, Tulsa, OK 74106
