11 Days to the kick off: featured session of the day - Going Further with ASP.NET 5 by Tugberk Ugurlu

In less than 10 days the Web European Conference will kick off, and to help you make the most of it, starting from today we'll feature one (or more) talks a day so that you can choose which talks to follow.

The first featured session is Going Further with ASP.NET 5 and we asked Tugberk Ugurlu to tell us more about his session and about himself.

Q: Tell us a bit more about your session

A: With this session, we will go a little further with ASP.NET 5 and look under the hood a bit to cover the advanced cases like several extensibility points, hooking into compilation, new authorization/authentication components and concepts, in-memory end-to-end testing with samples and a few more. We’ll also have a chance to see some end-to-end project examples, demonstrating how your workflows and coding might change, and some corner case issues and gotchas you might hit. Generally, this talk will broaden your understanding of what will be possible with ASP.NET 5, and you’ll know where to look if you want to get one step closer to mastery.

This session assumes that you have a prior knowledge on ASP.NET 5, and know how it’s different from its previous versions. If you want to benefit from this session and haven't got the chance to get up to speed wıth ASP.NET 5 yet, here are a few links to help you:

Q: Tell us a bit more about yourself

A: I am a web guy, Microsoft MVP and software developer specialized mainly on .NET Web technologies. I worked in the tourism industry to build tourism software services and products for long time and now, I'm working at Redgate Software as a Software Engineer helping people do database delivery in a joyful way. I am also very involved in the community and I like to share my knowledge with others through my blog, webcasts, authoring books, giving talks on various topics and so on.

Aperitivo

Big announcement: we are pleased to announce that the evening before the event, Friday 25th September, you'll have the chance to experience the traditional "Aperitivo alla Milanese" (Milan style happy-hour) which means that you'll have a buffet supper (and these can be both hot and cold dishes, pasta, pizza, focaccia, cheese, sausages and so on) that you get for free when buying a drink. If you ordered lunch or t-shirt for the conference, one of your drinks will be on us, which means that you'll eat and drink (one drink per person) for free: another reason to buy lunch for the conference.

Announcing second Web European Conference

We did it in October 2012, and we are doing it again: we are organizing the 2nd Web European Conference for Spring 2015, somewhere in Italy.

The conference will be about Modern Web Development, no matter which platform: .NET, Node.js, Ruby, JavaScript.

Our Manifesto

Modern web development is moving away from all the enterprisey features that used to rule the world of development in the past years, and is going toward a more light-weight and simple approach.

  • Code Craftsmanship: Developers are taking back the control, of the code they write, on how they write and on which tools make them productive.
  • Tiny assemblable frameworks: Gone are the huge monolithic frameworks from one vendor: Modern Web Apps are a mix and match of different frameworks, technologies and languages.
  • BYOT: Bring Your Own Tool: Modern Web Development is about productivity the way you want it, not the way the vendor wants it to be.
  • Mobile First: Web sites are now mostly viewed on mobile devices: web sites and apps must be built with that in mind.

Call for presenters

To make an awesome conference we need awesome speakers, and today we are also launching the call for presenters: if you want to propose a talk that matches the ideas of our Manifest, you can already submit your proposal. Go on our Github account, fork the c4p repository, add your proposal and submit a pull request.
