We've got some great, free Web Camps headed your way!
Web Camps are free, fun, no-fluff events for developers, by developers. Show up for the day, leave infused with a crazy amount of web dev info. Did I mention these are free?
My teammate Brady Gaster has put together some phenomenal new content, and I'm really looking forward to presenting at some of these.

So far the following locations have been announced:
|Brussels, Belgium||3-May-12||Register Here||With Brady Gaster and Matthew Osborn... and there's still room!|

There are a bunch more that are in the works but not quite ready to be announced yet - I'll update here, but the best place to keep up to date is at http://www.devcamps.ms/web
Oh, and I believe there's still room at the Web Camp in Brussels on May 3.
Web Camps Content
I've reviewed and contributed a bit to the Web Camps content that Brady's put together, and it's really, really good. There's a ton of information packed in. Here's an overview of the agenda (see the registration link for the exact agenda at each location):
- Welcome Back to the Microsoft Web Stack
- Integrating Your Site with Internet Explorer 9
- Top 10 Things You Didn't Know about WebMatrix 2
- Creating Rich HTML 5 Experiences
- Building Web Sites Using ASP.NET 4.5
- Building a Service Layer with ASP.NET Web API
- Deploying ASP.NET Apps to the Cloud
You can read more about those topic at http://www.devcamps.ms/web/agenda.
Now if you're almost convinced, but on the edge, and you need a video to push you over the top, you watch Brady and me announcing the Web Camps tour on Web Camps TV a few weeks ago:
Yes, if you read my blog you'll have noticed that this video is a repeat. That's how infomercials work.
