bannerDevNext proudly presents to you the TechElite Code Camp that will be held on 4th of May, 2009 at NED University, Karachi. ‘TechElite’ an annual mega IT event has been adding pride to NED University for the past two years. It is an event that has spurred participants from all over Pakistan by acting as a resource of information and inspiration for students and visitors. So, keeping in view our mission of making learning a culture, we will be conducting two seminars during TechElite 2009 from 3 PM to 5 PM at the CIS-Lecture Hall.
First session will be about “Visual Studio 2008 Tips and Tricks” by Adil Mughal. Visual Studio is one of most commonly used IDE for .NET Development. Unfortunately, with many new technologies developers have less time to learn about Visual Studio itself. In this session we will see some of the tips and tricks that will make developers utilize small but powerful features of Visual Studio that will ultimately help them to be more productive.
Second session is all about “SharePoint and DotNetNuke Branding” by Ali Nawaz. The theme of this Session is to increase designer knowledge on User Interface of latest technologies like DotNetNuke, SharePoint Portal. We will discuss about generalized mockup creation, balanced CSS creation, and some tips and tricks.
These sessions are always by and for the developer community and are absolutely FREE. So, if you are willing to attend, kindly register here.

O’Reilly Sponsors Emerging .NET Devs

"User groups represent the spirit of the frontier, a community getting together to do things that no individual ought to have to do alone. The pioneers of the American west got together for barn raisings, cattle roundups, and the occasional party. The pioneers of new technology get together for installfests, new user training and support, and just plain fun. Being part of a user group is the best way to get more out of your computer, and lets you make friends while you’re at it." — Tim O’Reilly
