Silicon Valley Code Camp Next Weekend! Intro to .NET Core & ASP.NET 5

I am speaking at silicon valley code camp. Please come to my session!  Click here for details.

It’s that time of year again in the Bay Area. Silicon Valley Code Camp takes place next weekend October 3rd and 4th. This time, it’s at Evergreen Valley College in San Jose.

There’s a lot great sessions taught by experts in the community on a variety of subjects and technologies. This year we also have 4 tracks which organize talks on these particular subjects:

It’s great to see a lot of Microsoft technologies here this year and the local MS developer relations team will all be here presenting sessions as well. I’ll be delivering this session in the Web Development track:

Introduction to .NET Core and ASP.NET 5 (10:45 AM Sunday October 4th)
ASP.NET 5 is a completely new Web framework for building modern, cloud-based Web applications that run on the cross-platform .NET Core. In this presentation I will introduce you to .NET Core and ASP.NET 5 and the latest features and innovations. For the first time every ASP.NET 5 app is supported on Windows, OS X and Linux by way of the new cross-platform .NET Core. Visual Studio 2015 also adds support for ASP.NET 5 with an agile cross-platform tooling experience. Come learn about the latest groundbreaking changes in .NET Core and ASP.NET 5!

Those of you who know me know that I don’t come from a web development background. My areas of focus were always desktop, data and Office development. I’m not ashamed to admit it (that much). But since I’ve been on the .NET core & languages team for a couple years, I have been exposed to ASP.NET 5 a ton as the team has been building it out in the open for a while now, along with our compilers and .NET Core. What’s cool, is that I’m starting from almost the beginning with an all new, powerful, cross-platform web stack. I should be able to deliver a good intro session for ASP.NET 5 beginners since I am one too! I will post all the demos and resources afterwards here.

BTW, if you’re not able to make it next weekend, you can check out this session at South Bay.NET tonight!

Wish me luck.
