June 27th is the date for the next Italian ALT.NET conference. And for the first time in Italy in a .NET UserGroup the sessions have all been proposed by the members of the user group. And since we received 18 proposal out of only 5 time slots, last week we also started the public voting.
Among the many proposals and think that a few require a special mention:
- “How to design the User Experience”, a skill that usually is missing in most developers (which will be delivered by Daniela).
- “A lap around Mono”, which at the moment is the one with most votes, that will be presented by Massimiliano Mantione, directly from the Mono team.
- “How to implement the MVVM”, in Silverlight, by Gianluca Gravina
- “Continuous Integration”… yes, there is still the need to talk about this… sadly (and this one is the 3rd most voted session so far). This will be presented by Claudio Maccari, a co-founder of ugialt.net
- “Designing plugin-oriented web application”, by Dario Solera, the guy behind ScrewTurn Wiki (yes, the one that got the donation from CodingHorror and didn’t know what to do with it)
Why did we decide to do a call for presenters and then open the public voting: because we wanted to give a voice to the many developers out there that had never had a chance to present at a user group meeting. Given the big response we had, the next conference will probably have more than one room, so that we will have even more people talking about interesting topics.
If you are planning to come, and you didn’t vote already, do it now!
