Just the PicThis week, I’m in Köln, Germany for two short events. This is one of my favorite cities and I spent time here back in the early ‘90s as a street musician. I didn’t need an excuse to visit this great city, but I had one anyway.

First was the Web Developers Kompact where I showed off AngularJS in an hour. The next day I did walkthrough of ASP.NET Web API at the .NET Developers Kompact. The attendees were great and even though there were fewer questions than I normally get, the quality of the questions was great.

11-12-2014 11-02-37 PMI had the pleasure of being invited to come to Zagreb, Croatia for the Advanced Technology Days! Though my Croatian is pretty dusty (by that I mean completely missing), I got to talk to a lot of great devs and have a wonderful lunch!

I love events like this as it gives me the chance to talk about technologies that benefit from showing live coding (versus just slide ware). I did two talks, one on AngularJS and another on Node.js for .NET Developers. Below you can find the slides and the demos:

For my last stop of my UK user group tour, I stopped in the town of Aberdeen. This is as far north as I’ve ever been. It’s at 57 degrees north latitude. That’s the same as Juneau Alaska! Luckily it’s summer time.

The group here in Aberdeen was a great group. I spoke about Web API 2 and I got some of the difficult questions about writing APIs. I want to thank Gary for helping get this handled.

It’s been a busy week. Today I got to spend the day in Glasgow and see the city a bit. In the evening I got to talk to a great group of developers about Angular.js. They were mostly open to the ideas about building interactive pages with Angular.js.

I haven’t done this talk in a while so I had a couple of hiccups. But with the crowd’s help we got through the demo. I fixed a couple of snags that didn’t work during the talk and you’ll find the full demo below:

I’m now on the Scotland swing of my Wilder World Tour.  Had a chance to stop by Edinburgh. What a lovely city, at least as much as I’ve seen so far.

For this stop, we talked about Node.js. Fun to see a Microsoft office outside the U.S. The organizers were great in helping fill up the room. Great questions from the attendees too.

The last stop of the week was in Nottingham. I had a chat with the Sheriff about some stolen hoodies. At least that’s what I thought he said – his accent was quite thick ; )

The team at dotNetNotts was great. We had a packed house of over sixty attendees. I am sure the pizza and beer helped, but some even stood for the talk. Resilient group!

My visit to Gloucester UK

My next stop this week was in the town of Gloucester in England. The group that ran this meetup was great and had everything setup to make this an easy talk to give. I especially want to thank Franck Terray and Sophie Lipowska for running the meetup.

For this stop, we talked about both ASP.NET Web API 2 as well as Azure Websites. I merged the two into a built API then deployed into Microsoft’s cloud. Lots of great questions later we stopped by the pub for a nice talk with the hard-core members. Great time was had by me.

Hereford Node.js Talk

I stopped by the small town of Hereford to talk to them about Node.js on Monday. The small, but very enthusiastic group was great! If you get a chance stop by and visit this adorable small town.

I have a talk on Node.js for .NET Developers and while I doubt I convinced everyone to try it out, I am hoping I got the ASP.NET guys to think about async in their controllers.

As my first talk in the UK, I was tasked with doing two talks in one day.  The group was a lot of fun and asked some key questions.

I got a chance to show two contrasting technologies in showing ASP.NET Web API 2 as well as Node.js for .NET Dev’s. With only fifty minutes for each talk, I had to try and cover them briefly.
