This session will focus on my must-have Visual Studio add-ins and other tools that makes programming faster and easier (and makes you look like a rock star programmer). All the tools that are either free or very affordable. Tool categories include add-ins for debugging and profiling and more. These tools are designed to impress your boss and get you home at a reasonable time. This session is packed full of demonstrations! Sit close and you just might catch a custom dotNetDave guitar pick or Rock The Nation postcard. Some of them will win you free software!

Rock Your Code Using Code Contracts

This session will introduce developers to the new powerful new feature that is part of the .NET 4.5 framework called Code Contracts. Code Contracts brings the advantages of design-by-contract programming to .NET programming. Contracts are used to improve testing via run-time checking, enable static contract verification, and documentation generation. Sit close and you just might catch a custom dotNetDave guitar pick or Rock The Nation postcard. Some of them will win you free software!

Florida CodeCamps (CC), SQL Saturdays (SS) ITProCamps (IT), and BarCamps in 2014:

Dates are being filled in as they're known. If you haven't attended in the past, a CodeCamp is a free, all-day Saturday developer event put on by regional developers, for developers. If you've been to CodeCamp in the past, then you know you don't want to miss the upcoming season. BarCamps are similar to CodeCamps, except they're not developer-specific, covering business, design, and other topics as well.
