Scott Hansleman – Scotland Tour

Scottish Developers in partnership with Aberdeen .NET Developers User Group are proud to announce that Microsoft’s very own Scott Hanselman, a Principal Program Manager and highly-active community developer, will be speaking at 4 events across Scotland in July. Scott will be speaking in Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Glasgow between the 9th and 13th of July.

All of the talks are free however we do request that you register if you wish to attend so we can ensure we avoid any issues with capacity at the venues.

Monday 9th July, Edinburgh

Mobile Web

Mobile traffic on the web is exploding. Are you ready? ASP.NET MVC 4 includes new mobile-friendly templates, a focus on responsive design as well as dedicated mobile templates that leverage jQuery and jQuery mobile.

Scott Hanselman will show you what you can do today and tomorrow to make your site friendly on a mobile device. When should your mobile site become a mobile application? Should you use CSS3 media queries, or go “all in” and use jQuery mobile or another mobile framework?

InfoOverload

As developers, we are asked to absorb even more information than ever before. More APIs, more documentation, more patterns, more layers of abstraction. Now Twitter and Facebook compete with Email and Texts for our attention, keeping us up-to-date on our friends dietary details and movie attendance second-by-second.

Does all this information take a toll on your psyche or sharpen the saw? Is it a matter of finding the right tools and filters to capture what you need, or do you just need to unplug. Is ZEB (zero email bounce) a myth or are there substantive techniques for prioritizing your live as a developer?

Join Scott Hanselman as we explore this topic…perhaps we’ll crowd-source the answers!

Thursday 12th July, Aberdeen AND Friday 13th July, Glasgow

One ASP.NET (super everything talk)

It’s an exciting time for ASP.NET and Open Source.

What does the next version of Visual Studio and ASP.NET bring to the world of web development? How will you use HTML5, CSS3 and new advances in JavaScript with ASP.NET? 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 what it means for developers of all flavors and persuasions.

Scottish Developers would like to thank Gary Park of Aberdeen .NET Developers User Group for working with Scott to make these events possible.
