Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 6th and 7th, 2012


Silicon Valley Code Camp has chosen a few subject areas that have been organized into tracks. These tracks are designed and scheduled so that if you have a specific interest in the track theme you can attend all the sessions associated with that track in an order that makes sense with minimal overlap. Tracks are always of the highest quality content and are organized by a track lead, typically from one of our top sponsors. This does not mean that there are not other sessions in the same theme as the track, but those other sessions may overlap.
Azure Cloud

There is little question that today’s software developer must embrace cloud technologies to create compelling applications. First, is the sheer number of users and of devices. Over one third of earth’s population is connected to the Internet. Second, there are now more devices connected to the internet than there are people. Third, mobile data traffic grew 2.3-fold in 2011, more than doubling for the fourth year in a row. When all is said and done you end up with a very simple conclusion – modern applications require connectivity to the cloud.

Windows Azure is the Microsoft cloud, and it enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. You can build applications using any operating system, language or tool. And you can integrate your public cloud applications with your existing IT environment. Windows Azure enables you to use any language, framework, or tool to build applications. Features and services are exposed using open REST protocols. The Windows Azure client libraries are available for multiple programming languages, and are released under an open source license and hosted on GitHub.

    C++ and C++11

    C++ is Hot!

    Mobile and cloud technologies are re-energizing interest in the uncompromising performance that C++ delivers and the new ISO/ANSI standard (C++11) introduces features that allow programmers to achieve that performance with ever greater expressiveness.

    Join us as we discuss how to get the most out of Classic C++ and discover the new features of C++11 that are being delivered now by the latest compilers.

    Sessions in this track are being given by award winning presenters. We will go beyond Procedural and Object-Oriented Paradigms to explore Generic Programming and Logic Paradigms. We will teach you how to write code in both Classic C++ and C++11 that you can be confident is performant, maintainable, and 100% robust in the face of exceptions. We will cover new C++11 features, including the new standard for threading and what Scott Meyer’s calls “the marquee feature of C++11,” move semantics. We will also introduce you to some powerful new tool sets, one from Microsoft and the other Open Source (Clang), for use with both Classic C++ and C++11.

                Product Management Track
                Product management is a business optimization function that oversees technology and product all the way from the product vision through product launch, market, delivery and later sunsetting. Software development teams benefit from understanding product management principles and the product management lifecycle beyond the development stage. Product Management is an attractive career path for developers who want to more strategically affect product outcomes and the business case. There are unique challenges, opportunities and rigor necessary at each phase of the product lifecycle that necessitate different tools to discern threats, respond effectively to opportunities, and nimbly identify appropriate procedures within each phase. Businesses where software development teams understand the product management function and product management teams are well defined, guarantee successful products are delivered that delight customers and increase revenue.
