I just wanted to remind my fans (both of them) that I’ll be speaking at two more events this month. First off is this Saturday the 20th in the Big Apple. I’ll be covering SQL Azure to the attendees of SQL Saturday 53. I’m first up, at 9am. I’ll be covering the reasons why to use SQL Azure, reasons why not to use SQL Azure and how to use SQL Azure. I’m also showing attendees how to do a little reporting on Windows Azure before SQL Azure Reporting comes out in CTP. I think it’s a good thing to cover.
The great guys down in Evansville asked me to come cover ASP.NET MVC. Since I’ve been using it in production almost since its inception, I jumped at the chance to share. I’ll be covering the basics and then I’ll jump into MVC 3 RC. There is a lot of great stuff that used to be in MVC Contrib that is now built in. The new way to change view engines is awesome. I’ll also cover how to port over some of that special code that only seems to work with viewstate enabled, like the Report Viewer control.
