my dotNetConf 2019 Talk

.NET ConfI had the opportunity to talk on the .NET Conf last week. Was fun to talk about .NET API Versioning. I love how much easier it is, these days, to be able to implement routing than it used to.

They finally posted the video, so if you want to see the talk, here is your chance:

As promised, here are links to the code and slides from the talk:

Atlanta Code Camp 2019 Registration Now Open

Atlanta Code Camp)Are you in the Atlanta Area? Want to hear me and a great group of speakers talk about everything in development? If so, it's time to register for this year's Atlanta Code Camp.

I'm planning on talking about gRPC and Vue.js (though the speakers haven't been selected yet). I'm looking forward to being at the entire event this year since I'm not travelling.

SQL Saturday and DotNetSouth in Atlanta

MeI've had a great time this week attending two events and talking about things I love: .NET and Vue.

Was a busy week, but really had fun time presenting again. Lots of great questions!

Earlier in the week I had the pleasure of speaking at DotNetSouth, a new event by the people who brought you Connect.Tech. They run a great show. I talked about .NET 3 (and 5) as well as Vue.js. Here are the slides and code:

Vue.js Talk at Atlanta Vue Meetup

Vue.js I had the opportunity to speak at the Atlanta Vue Meetup recently. This was a great group of people who had mostly had experience with Vue.js.

I'm so used to having to try and convince people to use Vue, that this was a fun talk to get people interested in using it in different ways than they are used to.

As promised, here are the slides and code:

Vue.js Presentation at the Atlanta .NET Users Group

Atlanta .NET Users Group I had a great time presenting to the Atlanta .NET Users' Group last night. I talked about where I think Vue.js.

I got to espouse my opinion (again) about SPA being large monoliths instead of building 'islands of functionality'. I learned a new achronym too, "Multiple Page Apps" or MPAs for this type of client-side dev.

As promised, I wanted to share the code and the slides:

Techorama Netherlands Wrap Up

TechoramaFinally heading home from about a month of conferences! I can't wait to get back to my own bed, but in the mean time I've had a great time sharing talks with a lot of European developers!

This time I was in Ede, Netherlands for the first Techorama outside of Belgium. As usual, the team did an amazing job! Here are the slides and code as promised from that event:

Thanks for asking great questions and attending the sessions!

Off the Road

I'm in the middle of a road trip for three conferences and it's been an amazing time. Next up is Techorama Netherlands! I am lucky to be asked to speak at so many amazing conferences.

As so many of you know, I travel a lot for speaking and work. This year has been a tumult of experiences and emotions. With my film finally heading into post-production I've made a decision about conferences for the next fifteen months or so.

So I'm going to stop doing conferences that require a plane trip. This is a big disappointment for me, but I think it's necessary. I have a lot I need to get done this year and, as fun as conferences are, they take a lot of time and energy.

Music City Code 2018

Music City CodeJust got home from Music City Code conference had a great time catching up with attendees and other speakers. If you haven't made it to this great Nashville event before, plan for next year. It's well worth it.

As promised, here are the slides and code from my talks. I did talks on "Enhancing Web Pages with VueJS: When You Don't Need a full SPA" and "Versioning APIs with ASP.NET Core 2.1". Here you go:

Scenic City Summit 2017

speakingJust got back from Chattanooga, TN for Scenic City Summit. I got to do two talks there and had some great audiences and questions.

Was great to catch up with some of the best speakers in the southeast at the event. I hope the attendees enjoyed it as much as I did.

As promised, here are the slides and the code from my two talks:

My Talk at Birmingham .NET User Meetup

bg-birminghamI had the opportunity to present ASP.NET Core 2.0 to a great group in Birmingham, AL tonight. The attendees were almost as good as the BBQ!

Doing a talk on a preview (ASP.NET Core 2.0) on top of another preview (VS 2017 Preview) is always risky, but it went well. Lots of great questions and hopefully I convinced some of the attendees to give it a try.

As promised, I wanted to share the slides and code:

Techorama 2017

tvrobot4xI had the pleasure of being invited to Techorama in Antwerp, Belgium this year. As usual, Gil and the team had a great event with over 1,500 attendees.

I love this conference because the attendees are so plugged in and I get great questions every time I do a talk there. I want to thank everyone for coming to see me talk on ASP.NET Core even though I had lost my voice. We muscled through though and hopefully some people are digging in deeper with it now.

Wroc# Wrap-Up

P1000610The great organizers of Wrocsharp invited us to come to Poland and present at an unusual conference. I had a great time and everyone was just lovely to me and my wife!

Wroclaw Poland (not pronounced anything like you’re thinking) is a lovely little city that has an interesting history. We enjoyed chasing down some of the hundred or so dwarves that line the front of shops and churches (seen to the right – yes, that’s a dwarf using a tiny ATM).

Wroc# is an interesting event in that they bring in a large number of people (I’m guessing 400 or so) and they have one huge track. Six speakers plus a Q & A Panel for the six speakers and that’s it. I felt very privileged to be picked to be one of the speakers (which included great speakers like Tess Ferrandez, Steven Sanderson, Chris KlugMaarten Balliauw, and Frans Rosén). It was a great day of .NET and C# content:

Boston Code Camp 2016

downloadI had the good fortune of being picked to speak at the Boston Code Camp for their winter event. As some of you know I used to live in Boston and it was a fun few days of reminicence.

The talk that got picked was ASP.NET Core Logging. As I've discussed on this blog, I'm a fan of how the logging is implemented.

Thanks for coming to my talk if you were able to come. The talk wasn't recorded, but I'm happy to share the code and the slides:

NDC Sydney was Awesome!

20160805_172651We just left Sydney after a great few days of the NDC Sydney conference. Saw some very cool talks about ASP.NET Core and Angular2!

Of particular interest was a talk by Steven Sanderson on JavaScript services for ASP.NET Core (e.g. cool things to do with Angular2, React and Node). When the recording is done, you should totally go see it!

I had two talks at the event: “ASP.NET Core Logging” and “Getting Ready for Bootstrap 4”. When the videos are posted, I’ll share them here. But for the people who attended the talk, you can get my demos here in github:

Thanks for the Great Road Trip!

We’re home. It’s a fantastic feeling, but we had a great time. I wanted to take some time to thank all the great attendees, guests and helpers that made this a great trip. We got some great podcasts and hopefully encouraged a lot of people to try out ASP.NET Core!

We took a lot of pictures and you can see some of them by clicking on the mosaic to the right!

On the Road Again...

The Hello World Road Trip part two has started. Me and the missus headed out of Atlanta to Belgium for our first stop.

We arrived at Techorama, I did a couple of talks and recorded our Belgium podcast with the great Bill Wagner. That should be up this weekend.

We have just over half of the stops left in the trip. If you want a chance to see me record a live podcast and talk about ASP.NET Core, sign up for this free event in the following cities:

Hello World Road Trip - So Far

We’re in San Francisco today and I thought it would be a good time to write a quick update to the trip. As some of you know, we’re currently in the middle of a twenty-five city trip and so far so good.

Tomorrow night we do the event here in San Francisco (with the amazing Beth Massi as our guest) and I’m excited to do our sixth event. It’s been an amazing couple of weeks and we can’t wait for the rest of the trip to unfold.

Me and my wife are travelling to each city to put on the road trip and we’ve done events in Atlanta, Birmingham, Austin, Phoenix, and San Diego. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Jim Wooley, Todd Miranda, Rod Paddock, Joe Guadagno, and Tim Huckaby so far.

ASP.NET 5 Webinar

I had a great time today talking about ASP.NET 5 on a Pluralsight webinar. Over 1,000 people were able to attend. Thank you all for tuning in!

The webinar showed the very basics of what ASP.NET 5 is and why it exists. I had fun answering all the questions and wish we had time to answer more.

Here is the source code for the project we created so you can play with the basics. This version using ASP.NET 5 RC1 so if you’re viewing this later on, the bits may not work quite right.

The Week at DEVIntersection

PrintI want to thank all the great attendees I met at this week’s DEVIntersection (Fall 2015) conference in Vegas! Richard Campbell and company put on a great show!

I had the opportunity to do three talks and two of them went well (if you were at my Bootstrap talk, you know what I’m talking about). In any case, I wanted to share the slide and code with the attendees so here it is:

New ASPNET5 Course Coming

I’m diligently working towards my new Pluralsight course and I am very excited about it. The new course is an end-to-end building of a web app using ASP.NET 5, MVC6, Entity Framework 7, Angular 1.4, and Bootstrap 3.x.

This course is a bit different than other courses I’ve done because we’re releasing it before the RTM of ASP.NET 5. Because of this, I wanted to let my students know what to expect.

The course will build a web app from an empty ASP.NET 5 project through to a deployed app. This mirrors my ASP.NET MVC5 course from a couple of years ago, but is written with the new stack. The course will build a whole new project as well. This time, you’ll be building a tool for trip planning called “The World”.

AngularJS and VS Code in Singapore

I’m currently in southeast Asia for my world tour. While in Singapore, I had the pleasure to chat with a great group of developers about AngularJS.

I love when I get great questions and the developers at this event were really keyed into the web stack and asked the hard questions about AngularJS (and of course AngularJS 2.0).

As promised, here is the slides and example code:
