It’s been something like 10 years that I didn’t write C++ code myself anymore. When I heard my friend Marc Gregoire started up his own user group BeCPP I decided to go and watch what’s happened over that decade. Frankly, a lot has seemed to happen. I was introduced to the new stuff that shipped with the latest C++ version and a second sessoin about the new move stuff. At some points I had to dig again on the information but overall I could still follow along.

A picture of both speakers: Marc Gregoire and Francisco Almeida:

For the people interested in both C++ and Metro be sure to check out their new session on May 8.

Grz, Kris.

Yesterday I had the pleasure to deliver my first international presentation in Lebanon. The talk was about ASP.NET MVC 2 which got recently released topped with some jQuery. Since I knew that most people didn’t have hands on experience with MVC I made a more entry level presentation, explaining why it was introduced by Microsoft and what it was. Then I used several demos especially crafted to demonstrate some of the handy and powerful additions like data annotations and the interaction with jQuery validation, templated helpers, partial views, using a JsonResult together with jQuery to fill up html elements dynamically, …

For me it was a great experience and I got several felicitations from the spectators. I myself would like to thank Bilal Haidar for getting me into contact with the Lebdev user group and Samer Chidiac from Microsoft Lebanon for organizing this event at Berytech.

The slidedeck that I used can already be found on slideshare:

In case you're still unaware of it, Community day is going to be held on June 26th. This is a free day with interesting technical content provided by the combined forces of several Belgian user groups. Be sure to check out the agenda of what's provided that day.

I'm also going to be there so if you'd like to say, hi just come over and do so.

Grz, Kris.
