My Presentations in Europe (December 2009)

This past week I’ve been traveling around Europe giving a bunch of presentations (approximately 5 hours in each country) – Norway on Tuesday, Sweden on Wednesday, Denmark on Thursday, and Belgium on Friday.  I’ll then be presenting at the BizSpark Camp in France this coming Tuesday.

Things went well with the talks, and I had fun meeting lots of new people (more than 3,000 attended the talks!). Below is a picture of my talk in Belgium – where everyone showed up in a red shirt :-)

My talks were filmed in a few locations – and I’ll update this post with pointers to the videos once they are online to watch.

Below are copies of my slides + demos bits:

Hope this helps,

Scott

I were at your session in Olso, Norway, and it was great!

You said that you would release the source code for the Facebook app soon. Do you know when that is?

Hey Scott, thanks for a great presentation in Copenhagen. I was thinking it would have been cool if you had implemented a ClimateController class with the MVC framework, and stuck around for COP15...

We were wearing a red shirt because 'the gu' always wears a red shirt at presentation apparently. I'm the one on the 13th row, 4th seat, wearing a red shirt, you guessed it right ;-)

@The Gu: Thanks for the great presentations. your intro movie was sooo funny. Hope the SL4 Facebook App will be available soon.

I was one of those guys in a red T-shirt who attended your talk in Belgium. Great informative sessions! As always: yes, it helps!

In case anyone wonders, the text on the T-shirt is "I'm a fan of The Gu!".

hey scott, you say that "My talks were filmed in a few locations"..... I am very sad to know that it was only filmed in few locations :( I am a huge fan of you and also the .net platform. I dont know why someone didn't film you in few locations :(

Anyways, waiting for the video links, cant wait to watch em.

Yeah I have one important question I forgot to ask about that Friday. Should the red t-shirt be worn inside our pants or over it? :)

As a Technical Director, it makes me cringe thinking how many Visual Studio / .Net iterations there are.

We're still on ASP.Net 2.0 / VS2005.  We actually provide these solutions to large scale clients as a business line and don't have time to rebuild environments / relearn new methods every year.  Can you imagine how difficult it is to get a baseline IDE configuration and training in place for 50+ developers every time MS releases a new version of its tools?  

The product roadmap is becoming ridiculous.

Hi Scott

I attended your presentation in Copenhagen and as usual you stuff was great.

The presentation was recorded but i still can't find the video on Channel 9.

When will it be accessible? We were representing our company and are ancious ti show the  MVC 2 and VS/TFS 2010 to our organisation, sincce it solves a lot of our issues today.

Can you please follow up on the videos tha ver promised to be accessible on Channel 9?

Kind regards

Esben Rasmussen

Just wondered why you host your large files (eg Silverlight pres) on Amazon instead of on Azure? :-)

Thanks Scott. Very useful slides especially for ASP.NET 4. I found also the IntelliSense Update Times for Popular Libraries interesting.
