One ASP.NET (super everything talk)
It’s an exciting time for ASP.NET and Open Source.
There’s new advances in ASP.NET with the addition of realtime (Signalr), new features in WebForms as well as support for mobile. How will it all snap together in a way that makes sense?
Join Scott Hanselman as he shares some internal documents and exciting surprises about the future of ASP.NET. What about Azure? We’ll talk about the world’s most misunderstood cloud and it means for developers of all flavors and persuasions.
Scott Hanselman work's out of his home office for Microsoft as a Principal Program Manager, aiming to spread good information about developing software, usually on the Microsoft stack. Before this he was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree, for 6+ years. He was also involved in a few Microsoft Developer things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and he'll speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen.
Before Corillian and Microsoft he worked as a Principal Consultant at a local Microsoft Solution Provider called STEP Technology, speaking, writing, consulting, and very much not getting rich during Web 1.0. Even earlier, he worked at a Car Parts Data Warehouse called Chrome Data, and before that he had a small company that specialised in internationalisation and thunking. He's also been an Adjunct Professor at OIT, teaching C#. On the side, he created the first PalmPilot Diabetes Management System in 1998 and sold it to a healthcare company five years later. It's now in limbo, but he's trying to get it released as Open Source.
