Top 10 reasons to get excited about mvcConf (the Virtual ASP.NET MVC Conference) on February 8, 2011 - Jon Galloway

Top 10 reasons to get excited about mvcConf (the Virtual ASP.NET MVC Conference) on February 8, 2011

mvcConf is a free, all day community run virtual conference on 2/8/2011. If you haven’t registered yet, grab one of the last remaining tickets quick – they’re going fast!

Here are the top 10 reasons to get excited about mvcConf:

  1. It’s free
  2. An outstanding lineup of community presentations in three simultaneous tracks (interactive sessions via LiveMeeting)
  3. An awesome series of presentations from the product team, including:
    • Keynote by Scott Guthrie
    • Phil Haack on NuGet
    • Steve Sanderson on the great MvcScaffolding system he and Scott Hanselman have been cooking up
    • Brad Wilson on Advanced MVC 3
  4. We’ll be live streaming the Microsoft speakers from  the newly renovated Channel 9 studios, which means
    • Lots more space for more attendees this time
    • Great quality video
    • Live, smooth streaming video so you can rewind and catch parts if miss a bit due to “too much awesomeness” overload
  5. On demand video with no downtime after the event – we’ll keep the smooth streaming player running after the event until the on-demand videos go live
  6. Great variety of sessions focused on hard-core MVC development, but with some sprinklings of related tools like WebMatrix, IIS Express, WCF (with Glenn Block), and lots more
  7. Supporting jQuery project – we’re donating a portion of the proceeds to the jQuery project
  8. Awesome sponsors – financial and technical support (including expenses like live video streaming) has been covered by great sponsors, like Umbraco, Microsoft, telerik, DevExpress, NimblePros, and TechSmith.
  9. Great community involvement – one of the best features of the first mvcConf was the backchannel communication in the IRC rooms and via Twitter. This is a great opportunity to mingle with some of the top developers, community leaders, and the ASP.NET product team.
  10. Did I mention it’s free?

After registering, why not read more about how we ran the first mvcConf (July 2010), and check out some of last years’ session recordings (lo-fi recordings last year, this years’ recordings will be high quality thanks to a donation from TechSmith).

Looking forward to it Jon! Is there any information on the mvcConf site now for folks who have never used Live Meeting?

@Eddie - You can download the Live Meeting client from here: office.microsoft.com/.../download-the-microsoft-office-live-meeting-2007-client-HA010173383.aspx

The Microsoft product team track will be live streamed on the website, so all you'll need for that is Silverlight (or Moonlight if you're on Linux).

Unfortunate that none of the feeds I'm subscribed to caught this until sometime Friday (which I missed since I was in meetings all day).

Glad to hear that they'll be available after the event, though.
