It’s official…DevTeach 2006 is going to be held on May 8-12, 2006 in Montreal. This is one of the best .NET conferences to attend since its smaller venue allows you to have close contact with speakers and fellow attendees. Montreal is a beautiful city with lots of night life and great restaurants. If you have a few extra days I HIGHLY recommend taking a few hour train ride up to Quebec City–it’s like going to Europe without going to Europe.
Markus Egger and I are .NET chairs for the conference again and we look forward to the best DevTeach yet. Check the DevTeach site (http://devteach.com) later this week for details. The call for sessions will be from November 1 to December 31. If you plan on submitting sessions I highly recommend:
- Submit several (five or more) session abstracts. This will definitely increase your chances of being selected to speak. If you only submit two sessions and one of our returning popular speakers submits the same sessions…you get the idea!
- Be specific and professional. A few sentences of generalization and buzz words isn’t going to make an impression. The work you put into your submissions says a lot about the work you will put into your sessions
- Submit sessions on technologies you actually have experience with. This provides the kind of in-depth coverage we’re looking for. Warmed-over repeats of high-level sessions that can be seen for free on the Microsoft web site won’t be well received
We hope to see you there!
