Presenting at Desert Code Camp on May 6

Filed under: Uncategorized — Anthony Park @ 5:56 pm

I will be presenting two sessions about Windows XP Media Center development at the upcoming Desert Code Camp on May 6, 2006 in Tempe, AZ.

Developing a Background AddIn for Windows Media Center

There are currently two types of development models for Windows Media Center: AddIns and Hosted HTML Applications. AddIns are essentially background services that have very limited user interface capabilities. In this 45 minute session, Anthony Park will demonstrate the design, coding, and installation of a Windows Media Center AddIn


Developing a Hosted HTML Application for Windows Media Center

There are currently two types of development models for Windows Media Center: AddIns and Hosted HTML Applications. Hosted HTML Applications are essentially rich DHTML applications that can interact with the Media Center object model. In this 45 minute session, Anthony Park will demonstrate the design, coding, and installation of a Windows Media Center Hosted HTML Application.


The two sessions will be very “code-centric” and will introduce a new open source plugin I have recently started writing for Media Center.

What is a Code Camp? In short, it is a free developer conference. Who is welcome? Anyone!

To get a better understanding, here’s the Code Camp Manifesto:

By and For the Developer Community


Code Camps are about the developer community at large. They are meant to be a place for developers to come and learn from their peers. Topics are always based on community interest and never determined by anyone other than the community.

Always Free


Code Camps are always free for attendees.

Community Developed Material


The success of the Code Camps is that they are based on community content. All content that is delivered is original. All presentation content must be provided completely (including code) without any restriction. If you have content you don’t want to share or provide to attendees then the Code Camp is not the place for you.

No Fluff only Code


Code Camps are about showing the code. Refer to rule #1 if you have any questions on this.

Community Ownership


The most important element of the Code Camp is always the developer community. All are welcome to attend and speak and do so without expectation of payment or any other compensation other than their participation in the community.

Never occur during work hours


We need to understand that many times people can’t leave work for a day or two to attend training or even seminars. The beauty of the Code Camp is that they always occur on weekends.

The community leaders in the desert have worked together to arrange this venue for our software developer communities. It’s not a “one-technology” event. There will be sessions on Java, Flash, open source, Microsoft, database, and all other technologies. Nothing is off limits.
