After the success of the DDD! Melbourne event last month, Telerik sponsored the DDD! Sydney (#dddsydney on Twitter) this weekend. 

The DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper! conference is driven by the community, meaning that everyone can submit a topic and the people vote for their favorites. 

In DDD! Sydney there were 4 tracks of great content about HTML5, Web, ALM and Other running in parallel. I could not attend all of them, however those I could gave me a plenty of new information and inspiration. Among the highlights were

  • S.O.L.I.D Design Principles in C# by Omar Besiso
  • New Development Workflows by David Burela. The video of his talk in DDD! Melbourne can be seen on his blog.
  • Windows Azure Acid Test by Matthew Done. This guy has done a tremendous work in measuring the performance of Windows Azure and SQL Azure platforms.
  • Easy Web Deployments by the Telerik .NET Ninja Malcolm Sheridan


Figure: Malcolm Sheridan had a lot of 'fun' during the demos in his presentation

Day two offered a practical experience (hands-on labs) on the latest technologies from Microsoft - Windows Phone 7 and Kinect SDK. It was certainly a "Sunday Fun Day" for everyone. 

Finally, I would like to thank the organizers for this great event - Lewis Benge and Aaron Powel. You did a very good job, guys!

If you are in South Australia, you might be interested in DDD! Adelaide. It is next Saturday (16-July) and it is free, so hurry up and register.
