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:

Kansas City Developers Conference

Image result for kcdc.infoSo KCDC is over for another year. This was my first year at the event and the organizers made me so welcome. Highly recommended!

I had the opportunity to teach both VueJS and Visual Studio Code for the attendees. As promised, here is the code and the slides from the event!

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.

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.

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).

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Atlanta Code Camp Call for Speakers is Open

We’re excited to announce that the 10th Annual Atlanta Code Camp is coming this fall on October 24th, 2015! We’re holding it at Kennesaw State University in Marietta, Georgia.

Whether you’re a veteran of technical talks or itching to get your feet wet with your first session, you should submit your ideas to the code camp. We like to have a mix of venerable and new speakers.

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).

Announcing the Hello America Road Trip

UPDATE: Registration is open for most cities now. We’re happy to also welcome new guests including David Giard, Joel Cochran, John Petersen, and G. Andrew Duthie! Don’t forget to signup. Only two and a half months to the first event in Seattle with Scott Guthrie!

Fun Talk Today in Delhi

P1000446I’m on the World Tour and this stop is in Delhi, India! While here I had the fun opportunity to give a talk on AngularJS to a great group at Sapient in Delhi, India.

Via Pluralsight and the great Pinal Dave helped organize this event. If I go long enough without giving a talk, I start to get the shakes. The group had great questions which I always like.

Great Time in Germany

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.

What's New in WebStorm 9 Webinar

Recently Pluralsight has been doing a series of Webinars on a variety of subjects. This week I’ll be doing one in their Dev series. Join me this Tuesday when I’ll be talking about the new features in WebStorm 9 and demonstrating it.

Advanced Technology Days 10 - My Talks

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:

Web API in Aberdeen Scotland

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.

Angular.js Talk in Glasgow Scotland

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:

Node.js in Edinburgh Scotland

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.
