Chaz Blogs It's all about the eXperience!

Help!  I so desperately want to present at NJ Code Camp II on June 3rd.  But what?  I am kicking around a couple of ideas and want to know what would get you to my session?  Here are some ideas I've been kicking around...

1. One or more Application Blocks in the Enterprise Library - Code demo 
    Just a display of how to incorporate these in your code.

2. Fun with Serialization - Code demo
    Show multiple ways to serialize and deserialize your objects to/from disk on a fat client.

3-A. Down with Datasets! - Code and debate
    I only use datasets as  a transport mechanism.  Like a REAL programmer I use custom objects to manage my data in memory.  What's better is I bind UI components to my custom objects!  Come tell me why I am wrong or share your enthusiasm for my extremist point of view.

3-B. Construct This (a follow up to 3A) - Code demo
        A demonstration on multiple ways to “hydrate“ objects by overloading constructors.

4. Source Control and Project Folder Organization - Best Practices Talk
    As boring as this topic may seem, I've seen great debate and dispare.  My way may not be the only way, but it works!

Tell me if you like any of these or shoot me an idea of your own.  All code demos will be provided in {GASP} VB.Net.  I'm looking forward to your feedback!!!!

I am a new Jersey Geek-). I'd like to encourage you to do Down With Datasets!

All of them sound interesting. I will definitely attend 1 or 3-A.

I'm torn between 3A and 3B. I'd love to see and hear both. :)

On a second thought, having ingrained hatred for DataSet abuse, I'm voting for 3A.

Milan,

3A and 3B are not mutually exclusive. If I have enough time to prepare I will offer 3B as a second session following 3A. It will be a 2 part thing. In my mind they go together nicely, but it is not necessary to attend 3A to follow along with 3B.

I would like to attend 1, especially if its the enterprise library for .net 2.0.
I'm bored with the never-ending Datasets debate, but I see you have got a lot of votes on that.

They certainly do look interesting. Do the datasets.
