It’s that time of year again… the CodeStock session line up has been announced and – much like years past, it is looking to be a great conference. If you’ve not attended CodeStock before, or are not familiar with what it is, it’s a great regional developer conference hosted in Knoxville, TN early each summer. You can see a list of the content that will be covered at this year’s conference here: http://codestock.org/Sessions/Default.aspx – that’s a lot of content crammed into two days – and a great value at only $60.
I’m quite excited have been selected to speak at CodeStock this year… probably more than I have in the past. The reason is that I chose a topic that I’ve been studying and enjoying, but not one that is typical for this sort of conference. Over the past three years, I’ve spoken at CodeStock on topics including SharePoint, Team System, Amazon Web Services, Windows Azure, and GPGPU computing with CUDA. This year, however, the talks I’m giving (buffer overflow detection/exploitation and wireless network security) affect developers but are often considered topics for security-specific conferences. What is great, is not only did these talks make the cut, but the buffer overflow talk was #12 in the list of top vote getters (CodeStock lets registered attendees vote on what sessions they’d like to see). If you happen to be in the Knoxville area in the middle of June I hope you’ll consider attending the conference.
