I have scheduled several speaking gigs this fall in California. The first stop is October 8-9 in Los Altos for the Silicon Valley Code Camp. My topic will be “Software Gardening”. My next stop will be the San Louis Obispo .NET User Group. The topic is “SOLID Object Oriented Design”. My presentation there will be Monday, Oct. 10. If you are a regular member of this group, note that the meeting is one day earlier than normal. Thanks to the organizers for moving their meeting to accomodate me. Finally, I’m at the Inland Empire .NET User Group in San Bernadino on Tuesday, Oct. 11. “Software Gardening” will again be presented. I hope you can make it out to one of these events as it supports your local developer community. And be sure to stop and introduce yourself.
