Community, Career and You: a Microsoft MVP Panel

Level :
Beginner
Date :
3:30 PM Saturday
Room :
4221
Interested : (81) - Registered : (34)

No person survives as an island, and no career grows spontaneously. In this session, we will discuss how to strategically grow your professional opportunities by participating in technical communities. Whether an open source, cross-platform, .NET, iOS, Android or Linux developer (or all of the above), this panel will let you tap into the real-world experiences of Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs). You will also learn about what it takes to receive and benefit from the MVP Award, and how to get started with the MVP Mentor program. Raucous (or at least mildly amusing) stories guaranteed.

Rock Your Code With Defensive Programming

Speakers: David McCarter

This is a companion session to the “Rock Your Coding Standards” that takes writing better code to the next level. Do you enjoy receiving bug tickets from QA? Didn’t think you would, so this session will provide solid practices that I have been using for most of my programming career to check-in only rock solid code. You will learn my #1 mantra that I use while writing code that allows me to write new code (features) and stay out of maintenance mode.

Have you ever not gotten a job due to not being prepared for the technical interview? Do you want a big raise? I've interviewed 100's of software developers and will share my knowledge on how to survive, what we look for and even divulge some of the secrets we use during the process. This session will include advice from hiring managers, recruiters and engineers that were recently hired at a new company! Maybe some crazy interview stories for fun.
