Woo hoo! Due to a change in plans I am now going to NCDevCon on September 17th and 18th in Raleigh, NC. This is a conference that is small and intimate but draws some really top talent among its speaker pool! It is also just pretty flippin’ cool!
In 2012 I attended my first NCDevCon (@NCDevCon) conference. In 2013 and 2014 I was one of the speakers! Not bad for a developer who just woke up. NCDevCon is so cool they video every presentation and make them available online. Just go to http://ncdevcon.com/page.cfm/videos-by-year. They have all the videos from the last several years in one easy to find place. For my talks look for “Taming the Legacy Beast Turning Wild Old Code Into A Sleek New Thoroughbred” (video 8 of 2014), and “From Where do I Begin to What can we do next Turning Legacy Spaghetti Code Into a Delicious Lasagna” (video 4 of 2013)
I couldn’t make it in 2015 because it fell on the last couple days of my honeymoon. Oddly enough, I could not convince my wife to finish the honeymoon there. Go figure.
I hadn’t planned on going in 2016 either. But said, “Heck with it all! I’m not going to miss this!” So my conference ticket is bought. I booked a great AirBnB location in nearby Cary, NC (at least I hope it is great…stay tuned on that one). And, of course, I have already printed out the conference agenda and highlighted the ones I want to see.
Are you going to NCDevCon? If so, leave a comment and I’ll surf name tags all day for you. Kind of like an awkward version of “Where’s Waldo?”
