This was my second year presenting at the SoCal Code Camp San Diego. Unfortunately this year I had to miss Saturday because of my daughter’s 5th birthday party. I heard the evening festivities weren’t as nice anyway, because they didn’t have band. As Dave McCarter said, “Where’s the Rock and Roll?”
My topic this year was “REST vs. SOAP or Why can’t we all just get along.” It was on implementing both REST and SOAP from the same service using WCF. The official session info is here which contains the slides and the demos. The talk was first thing in the morning on Sunday, but despite the time the room was packed. The talk went extremely well even though I ran out of time and didn’t finish the entire demo. Both Daniel Egan and Lionel Wong asked if I would present at other events. I had several people come up afterwards to ask for business cards, and two people said it was the best talk they had seen so far this year. Thanks to everyone who came out!
