Connections in Vegas


I’m in Vegas this week for Connections. Connections is a 3-part conference covering ASP.NET, Visual Studio, and SQL Server.  I did the demo keynote for Marie Huwe, our fearless leader, and a session on language and IDE enhancements. I’m happy to be done with sessions. All the usual suspects are here, Juval Lowy and Carl Franklin, the conference chairs always get good speakers. Scott Guthrie, Rob Howard, Julie Lerman, Tom Rizzo, Goldfarb, Prashant, Mark Michaelis, Bill Evjen, Doug Seven, Ari Bixhorn, and even Rory.

The keynote went well and the demo didn’t die. I’ll go into more detail on the keynote and my session a little later.

Getting more info on the event:

Paul Ballard from TheServerSide.NET has some of the best coverage of the event so far:

Dave Bost, Scott Guthrie, and Rory are blogging about the show too. If you’re blogging about Connections, add a link to your blog in the comments.

I’ll blog more soon on the goings-on.

    Here in Vegas with you. I enjoyed your enhancement talk. There are some great features appearing in the IDE!

    You did forget to show adding using statements by right clicking on a Type. *smirk*

  2. Thanks William 🙂

    I did show the Auto using feature, but I showed it in the keynote rather then the IDE enhancements session. It’s a great feature so I wanted to make sure as many people as possible got to see the feature in action

    Ahh, so I should have been paying better attention.

    Great talk though!
