Steve Michelotti Special Event - Teach Your Kids to Code! (Bring your kids!) - Steve Michelotti (MVP)
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 6:30 PM
Have you ever wanted a way to teach your kid to code? For that matter, have you ever wanted to simply be able to explain to your kid what you do for a living? Putting things in a context that a kid can understand is not as easy as it sounds. If you are someone curious about these concepts, this is a “can’t miss” presentation that will be co-presented by Justin Michelotti (6th grader) and his father. Bring your kid with you to CapArea.NET for this fun and educational session. We will show tools you may not have been aware of like SmallBasic and Kodu – we’ll even throw in a little Visual Studio. Concepts such as variables, conditionals, loops, and functions will be covered while we introduce object oriented concepts without any of the confusing words. Kids are not required for entry!

Steve Michelotti is a Microsoft ASP.NET MVP and an Architect/Developer for Applied Information Sciences (AIS). He has consulted at where he was the Tech Lead for one of the highest volume .NET applications in the world. He previously was the Chief Technologist at e.magination. Steve is a frequent presenter at developer user groups and Code Camps along the East Coast and holds the MCSD, MCPD, and MCT certifications. Steve has been on Microsoft Channel9 and his published articles include Visual Studio Magazine and his blog:

Joel Cochran An Introduction to Test Driven Development (TDD) - Joel Cochran (MVP)
Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 6:30 PM
Test Driven Development is a technique that requires Unit Tests for code to be written before the code itself. By placing the emphasis on testing, developers can define success before code is written. This helps us answer that elusive question of "when is code done?" TDD offers additional benefits such as only writing code you need to satisfy your requirements, enhanced maintainability, and better modularity. In this presentation we will take a hands on look at TDD by walking through Roy Osherove's "TDD Kata", a daily exercise in Test Driven Development.

Joel Cochran is a user experience engineer, web developer, and Lead Developer for WintellectNOW, an on-demand video training service. A Microsoft Windows Platform Development MVP and ASPInsider, Joel focuses on ASP.NET MVC, JavaScript, and Windows Azure. He spends an inordinate amount of time on Twitter (@joelcochran) and far less time on his blog
