The last UGIALT.net Conference

Last Saturday it was the 7th and last Conference organized by UGIALT.net. With last I really mean last, as in there won’t be any more conferences organized by UGIALT.net, at least not in its current form. This is the end Those who attended know the reasons why we decided to terminate operations, but if you were not there, you can have a look at the keynote’s slides, watch the video of the keynote, or reading the more detailed explanations on Emanuele’s blog post, Perchè UGIALT.net ha chiuso?, or on my Italian blog L’ultima UGIALT.net conference. And...

19 February 2011: UGIALT.net Conference 6th edition

Since 2008 UGIALT.net, the Italian ALT.NET user group, organizes two conferences per year, and will do the same in 2011. The first one will be next February 19th, in Milano, most likely in the same place were we had the conference last year: in the offices of Avanade Italy, near Milano Central Railway Station. But unlike the other conferences, where we did a call for proposal and a public voting, this time it will be more like a BarCamp: we will have 2-3 rooms and people that want to discuss about something (obviously related to .NET development or...

5th Italian ALT.NET Conference (winter edition)

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 cfp@ugialt.net. Session in English...

Fix the date: Italian ALT.NET Conference Summer Edition

We just booked the room, and fixed the date for the next Italian ALT.NET Conference: it will happen on Saturday June 27th, and will be held in Bologna (which is not where Spaghetti alla Bolognese was invented). The event is co-hosted by UGIALT.NET, the Italian ALT.NET user group, and DotNetMarche, the .NET user group from Marche. I’m really happy to be able to organize this event together with the DotNetMarche guys, which proposed this collaboration last year when I talked about ASP.NET MVC at one of their workshops. This workshop was supposed to be held on a beach...

Booked the flight to the ALT.NET Conf and the MVP Summit

Yesterday I finally I booked the flight to Seattle for the MVP Summit and for the ALT.NET Conference. I'll have a pretty tight schedule for the week I'll be there: I'll leave from Milano on February 27th in the morning and I'll land in Seattle at 2:30PM The ALT.NET Conference will begin at 5PM of the same day, I hope I can clear the customs and take a taxi to the venue on time for the opening. Then Saturday and Sunday I will be at the ALT.NET Conference Sunday evening at the Party with Palermo Monday,...

Italian ALT.NET Conference take 3

It took us a while to organize it, but finally we made it: the 3rd Italian ALT.NET Conference will take place in Milano on January 24th 2009. We will have Ivan Porto Carrero, author of IronRuby in Action, come down from Bruxelles and talk about IronRuby, and then there will be some talk on TDD, DDD, user stories, mocking and that kind of stuff. You can help shape the meeting: just go to ugialtnet group and vote at the poll. If you want to attend, please register at altdotnet.org/events/italy. I want to thank David Laribee...

Second Italian ALT.NET conference

After the "small success" of the first UGIALT.net mini conference in February, UGIALT.net is organizing another conference in June. The second UGIALT.net conference will take place on Saturday June 14th, and will take place at the offices of Avanade Italy, in the center of Milano. As for the other conference there will not be a fixed agenda, but the event will be a day-long discussion on the topics decided by the participants, probably developing a small app to focus on the various stages of the development. If you are Italian and want to know...

An ALT.NET group is born in Italy

Unveiled by one of the founders, yesterday an ALT.NET group is born in Italy (and I'm among the 5 founding members). The main objective of the group is to organize OpenSpace meetings, to fosters exchange of experiences with tools and approaches that are not easy to find on the usual user groups. It's something very similar to the Lunches with Geeks organized by Ivan in Wellington, but unfortunately here in Milano it's not possible to gather at lunch time. What is ALT.NET has already been said many times, so I'll not quote the usual paragraph, but I'll translate here...

Want an ALT.NET meeting in Wellington? Go to Lunch with Geeks

Reading what Fowler and Palermo say about organizing an ALT.NET Conference my mind wandered back to the short chats Ivan Porto Carrero is organizing since mid-May at lunch time in Wellington: the Lunch with Geeks. AltNetConf's are open spaces conferences where DotNetters get together to discuss how to build better .Net software. They are held every Tuesday at midday at Syn Bar, in Bond Street, and, even if there is a rough topic of the day, they are kind of short OpenSpaces, and the usual topics, thanks to Ivan and the guys from MindScape (which are among the regular attendants), are usually about "alternative...

Some clarifications on my opinion about ALT.NET

My opinion about the ALT.NET probably has been misunderstood by a few bloggers that only focused on the first part of the post. Both Ayende and Jay Flowers disagree with my opinion that 80% of the developers can't get the concepts behind ALT.NET. Actually I didn't say that they can't get it, I only said that they don't want to stay up to date, which is a lot different. Even if there are a lot of talks going on, a lot of blog around (as Jay says in his post) most of the developers are not interested in "being on...

Yet another ALT.net opinion

I wanted to write my opinion about the ALT.net thing since a long time, but I really never find the time to sit down and organize my ideas into an organic post.The event that "triggered" this post is my friend Lorenzo asking my opinion about his blog post "There are architect and Architects" (it's in Italian but here is the link to the auto-translated version by Google). In his post Lorenzo, commenting on Sam's post about leaving CodeBetter and ALT.NET, adds some thoughts about something that usually the hard-core ALT.NET people don't get: imagine you have an Enterprise-level project,...
