GetFile Keeping the usual half-yearly pace (one in winter and one in summer), the 5th Italian ALT.NET Conference will take in Milano, Saturday January 23rd 2010, kindly hosted by Avanade.

It will be a openspace conference (like all the previous ones) and this time we will have all the 9th floor of the building: this means we will have rooms for 4 concurrent tracks, and room for more than 100 people.

We are heading for at least 15 sessions so, if you want to propose something, please do it by sending an email to [email protected]. Session in English also are accepted.

What we are going to discuss

We have 4 session proposal so far, and other people (also from outside Italy) committed to propose other sessions.

Topics we are going to discuss are:

  • Distributed Source Control (git, mercurial)
  • Relational Databases are still alive despite the NoSql-like databases
  • TFS 2010 for Agile
  • Domain Validation: how and why
  • MonoTouch
  • Frontend development best practices (CSS, HTML, JS)
  • jQuery
  • UI and UX
  • a case study of the refactoring for a legacy application
  • and more


The registration will open exactly 2 months before the keynote of the Conference: Monday November 23rd at 10:00AM CET.

I’ll post an update with the URL for the registration a few days before it opens so that you can be on time and register before it closes.

Twittering about the conference

And last but not least, the official hashtag if you want to tweet about it is #ugialtnetconf, and I’ll post update using this tag.
