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.


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.


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!
