How much does it cost?
Nothing. Nada. It’s totally free to attend. You’ll get a free lunch and coffee/tea throughout the day. The event is made possible by the kindness of Microsoft, the NDRC and the Digital Hub. There’s even free WiFi available, so you can tweet during the event!
DevExpress and Telerik have kindly provided us with swag in the form of wearables and product licenses – register and attend the event for a chance of winning a high-value prize! We should have plenty of wearables, so your chances of going home with something are high!
In this show, where no beer had been consumed (a-may-zing), I’ve taken Claudio Perrone aside and forced him to give me a one-2-one presentation! Claudio delivered an awesome lunchtime session at the Irish Software Show: Crafting Outstanding Presentations – Storytelling Techniques. I really wished that I had taken my camcorder to record it, it was amazing. However, fear not, Claudio was kind enough to share his skills in this audio recording!
The Irish Software Show http://epicenter.ie begins next week in Trinity College Dublin. It’s a four day event with around 80 tutorials given by over 50 international speakers.
There’s some great Microsoft development sessions throughout the event, and particularly on Wednesday. I’ll be there on Tuesday talking about Word & Excel 2007 / 2010. I’ll be explaining how the Open XML SDK helps us write C# code to create and work with .docx and .xlsx files. I’ll also be showing off “Content Controls” which are an awesome feature that often goes overlooked!
To book, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01 443 4131 (In Ireland!) and the organisers will give you further instructions.
If you are unable to make the show but have a spare hour first thing on Tuesday, you are also invited to go along to Dr Chris Horn’s keynote presentation which starts at 9am. Chris is the co-founder of IONA Technologies and now sits on the Government’s Innovation Taskforce. In his keynote, he will be explaining the rationale behind their strategy, which should give clues to CEO’s on how to position their businesses to take advantage. See http://short.ie/chrisjhorn for more information. To reserve a seat, email epicenter@IrishDev.com with Chris Horn in the subject line.
