North African Developers Conference
Day 1 of the North African Developers Conference and I have to say that North African developers were either very polite or liked my jokes! (Well Bill Gates is such an easy target!). Translation was not a problem, I started in Arabic (which lasted about 2 minutes), switched to French which lasted about 2 seconds and then to English. I talked SLOW, yes slow. It was hard talking like a normal person, but hey it worked.
Developers were very interested in SQL Server Merge Replication in my Using SQL Server CE & SDE to build Enterprise Solutions talk. The Using Regular Expressions in Windows Forms & ASP.NET (Code and Slide Download) this afternoon went very well. ASP .NET validation controls were very popular as well as this code to remove HTML:
//Using the \ escape inside the string
string strPattern = "<(\"[^\"]*\"|'[^']*'|[^'\">])*>";
//create a new RegEx as a pattern
Regex rxReplace = new Regex(strPattern, RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);
//do the replacement
string strNoTag = rxReplace.Replace(strHTML, "");
//return the string w/o the HTML in it
