Pilgrimage time for the developers

This year Tech Ed NZ 2008 takes place in Auckland from 1-3 September. This is the big event for nearly everyone interested or involved with IT in New Zealand.

Before Tech Ed however, a few of our dev boys are participating in Auckland Code Camp happening Sunday 31 August, 9am – 6pm. This is being put on by the .NET User Group, thanks in part to our own Senior Developer Kirk Jackson, who is one of the organisers. It’s entirely free, thanks to sponsors like Datacom and Intergen, so tell all your coder friends to go for the free lunch, some giveaways and good times.

One of the speakers this year is another Xero, software developer Owen Evans. Owen will be presenting on a new framework for creating web based applications that Microsoft has been hard at work on, called the ASP.NET MVC framework. Owen will discuss what it is, why a new framework is necessary, all the benefits and why you should be paying close attention to it.
