London “Guathon” Event with Me on August 13th

The (awesome) UK developer community is holding an all day event with me in London on August 13th.  The event is free to attend, and the venue will be in Central London (at the ODEON Covent Garden).  The website for the event is here.

Content

The event will be a packed day of presentations covering VS 2010, ASP.NET 4, ASP.NET MVC, and Silverlight for Windows Phone 7.  Below is the list of talks:

VS 2010 and ASP.NET 4 (90 minutes)

A demo heavy talk that covers some of the new features and capabilities within Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET 4, and how you can best take advantage of them.

ASP.NET MVC 2 (90 minutes)

A demo heavy talk that covers using ASP.NET MVC 2 with Visual Studio 2010.  We’ll spend 90 minutes building a new ASP.NET MVC 2 application starting from File->New Project, and explain the core concepts behind ASP.NET MVC, as well as how to take advantage of the new features shipped with ASP.NET MVC 2.

Windows Phone 7 Development (90 minutes)

In this session we’ll take a look at Windows Phone 7 and the developer ecosystem, from the capabilities and unique features of the platform to the development frameworks and tools you have at your disposal. Along the way we’ll build a simple application or two and explore how people can buy your finished masterpiece.

Web Development Futures: ASP.NET MVC 3, SQL CE and IIS Express (90 minutes)

In this session we’ll covers some of the new web technologies shipping in the near future.  Learn about some of the improvements coming with ASP.NET MVC 3, the new “Razor” template syntax, “Code-First” EF4, SQL CE and IIS Express.

Registration

The event is free and only has a few hundred seats – which means they will likely fill up fast (likely in a few hours – or even minutes – if past history is any indication).  So if you want to attend I recommend signing up quickly.

Registration will open tomorrow (Tuesday August 3nd) at 2pm (UK time).  The website for the event and registration is here.

Hope to see some of you there!

Scott

@Richard,

>>>>>>>>>> Is that date right? On the registration website it says Tuesday *3rd* August

The event is on the 13th of August.  Registration for the event opens tomorrow (Tuesday the 3rd).  I just noticed I mis-typed the registration date in my email - I'll update it to be the 3rd as well.

Thanks,

Scott

What about recording it, and upload it to the web (for people that outside the UK)?

Hi Scott, is there any chance you will be bringing an event to Birmingham again like the excellent March event?

Tried to register, looks like the registration website has crashed. Hope it wasn't implemented on the technologies that are due to be presented on that date.

Hmph.  That's annoying - the Register link is at the top of the page alongside the Home button etc., and not part of the details of the event.

Oh dear, bit of a disaster with the registration website.. I wonder how many other people spent an hour refreshing the page waiting for the registration form to appear? Quite a few judging by the site going down.

Barely managed to register for the event... Half an hour constant refreshing the page, and then waiting for the confirmation mail for a couple hours have paid off :)

But yeah, seems like the DDD server was heavily DDoS-sed by all your fans :)
