What happened at the Italian ALT.NET conference

Yesterday it was the day of the second UGIALT.NET conference in Milano: almost 40 people attending, 8 different speakers/moderators and a lot of interaction (and a free lunch courtesy of the sponsor of the event, Avanade). Many people were new to the ALT.NET thing, and to the "good design principles" as well, so we decided to try and spread the good news. With that intent the event started, after the welcome speech, with 6 lightning talks (thanks to the Welly .NET UG for the idea) on the basic concepts we would have used in the afternoon for the hands...

Running Challenge for .NET developers

Spring arrived, days are getting longer and I started jogging after work again (of course, with my Nike+iPod gear). I also found out that Vito Arconzo, a .NET developer in Italy, also started running with an iPod, so I decided to set up a running challenge, and see how many .NET developers out there are using this geeky stuff. The challenge is named "Train for the UGIALT.net meeting", will start tomorrow, May 15th, and the winner will be the one that runs more kilometers in 30 days, before the UGIALT.net conference that will take place on June 14th. If you want to take...

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...

Italian ALT.NET miniconf: small in size, high in value

Yesterday I went to the first conference of the recent born UGIALT.net usergroup. It was my first time at a OpenSpace conference and I really like it. We talked about ASP.NET MVC, about UnitTesting, TDD, Mocks, and also about code metrics with NDepend and SourceMonitor. I was the moderator of the session on the ASP.NET MVC framework, and was nice to see all the other bringing to the table their experiences, especially Gianluca that, for each feature of the ASP.NET MVC, made a comparison with MonoRail. We noticed that ASP.NET MVC lacks of a feature that might be interesting: the possibility to...

First ALT.NET (mini)conference in Italy

At the end of October the UGIALT.net was born in Italy (where UGI stands for User Group Italiano). Now we are organizing our first conference, on February 23th, in Brescia. In the title I say "mini" because the place in which we decided to gather is not very big, only around 10-15 people can fit into the conference room of ABSistemi. But I'm pretty sure we will end with a lot of great discussion on "good ways" of building software and for sure we will have a lot of fun watching at the CI...

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...
