That Conference presentation slides and source code

That Conference logo

On Monday August 12, 2013 I had the extreme pleasure of presenting at That Conference in Wisconsin Dells, WI. This was my first time presenting at a conference internationally and I was very fortunate to get into That Conference as mine was picked out of 548 submissions. As well, this year they were expecting over 1,000 attendees so I knew this was going to be a great learning experience.

For this talk I re-worked my presentation from DevTeach Toronto in May. My session again was called Maximizing code reuse between WP8 and Windows 8 but this time around I was able to delve into the topic more deeply. During the 60-minute seminar I showed the differences between Windows Phone 8 & Windows 8 and how we can bridge the gap between the two to better leverage the code we write so that it can work on both platforms.

I have published my slides as a PowerPoint file through Dropbox. They are also available for viewing and download through SlideShare.

As well, I have zipped up my Visual Studio demonstrations and added them to Dropbox. In this file you will find the starting templates I used to build out the demos as well as the end solutions.

Please contact me if you have any follow up questions from the presentation. My contact information is also available within the slides.

My DevTeach presentation slides and source code

DevTeach logo On Tuesday May 28, 2013 I had the pleasure of presenting at DevTeach Toronto. This was a big deal for me as this was the first time I had ever presented at a large conference. The experience was both terrifying and exhilarating and it definitely whets my appetite to present at more conferences in the future.

For this talk I co-presented with my friend Tom Walker on Maximizing code reuse between WP8 and Windows 8. This was an interesting topic to both research and present. During our 75-minute seminar we showed the differences between Windows Phone 8 & Windows 8 and how we can bridge the gap between the two to better leverage the code we write so that it can work on both platforms.
