Announcing the 2nd Web European Conference, next Spring, in Italy

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...

MountainJS: JavaScript conference in the Swiss Alps

UPDATE (15 December): Boo... The Conference has been cancelled. Do you use JavaScript? Do you like skiing or snowboarding? Do you live in Europe? If you answered yes to at least the first 2 questions than you definitely have to attend the MountainJS conference held on the 4th and 5th of February in ski station of Leysin, near Geneva Lake, in the Swiss Alps. The conference will be about JavaScript being used as the unique and exclusive language for both frontend and backend web development, covering the hottest topics, technologies, techniques and platforms to build the next generation of web and mobile...

OpenROV at Node.js Conf Italy and Maker Italy

On the 11 of November I had the pleasure to present at the Node.js Conference Italy the work I’ve been doing with Dominik and a bunch of other guys in the San Francisco area on the “brain” of the robotic submarine called OpenROV. On my way back from Brescia I stopped by at the first Italian Maker Faire, held in the big expo area of Milano Rho, where I wandered among stands full of flying drones, biped robots, 3D printers, FabLabs and electronics shops. Together with web development, the makers and open hardware movement is something I’m getting...

Web.NET Conference: find it on social media

Apart from the obvious twitter and facebook, the Web.NET Conference is using a few specific social networks. We are also on: Geekli.st – A social network for “geeks” OleaPark – A conference specific networking app Lanyrd – A conference social directory I’m going to explain a bit more what they are, and for we have decided to use them. Geekli.st Probably I should have added geekli.st in the first line of this post, next to twitter and facebook after the adjective “obvious”. If you are a...

Web.NET European Conference: sold out in 2hrs and now the agenda is available

I have to say that lately all my spare time has been dedicated to the organization of the Web.NET Conference: I firmly believe that the future of web development will move away from the enterprise features and the needless over-engineering typical of the last decade. That’s why I’m putting so much effort in this conference. And I’m super happy of how it’s rolling out. Registration: Sold out and waitlist is open We opened registration the 18 of September, at midday, and by 2:30PM all the 120 places available have been given out: that means 120 seats in 2:30....

Vote for the sessions you want to attend at the Web.NET Conference

Over the month of July, 29 speaker submitted 44 presentations' proposals. But we have only 19 slots, so even limiting to one session per speaker we will not be able to accept all the speakers that submitted a proposal. Today we are opening the voting phase: till the beginning of September you’ll be able to vote for the 5 sessions you’d like to attend to at the Web.NET Conference on the 20 October. Speakers are coming from all Europe (and beyond), like Pierre Spring from Switzerland, Niels Hartvig from Umbraco, Jakob Mattsson from Sweden, Maarten Balliauw, Kris van...

Announcing the Web.NET Conference Europe, this fall in Italy

The web is evolving, and so are the techniques, technologies and frameworks used in web development. Together with Ugo Lattanzi we are organizing the Web.NET Conference Europe, this fall, in North Italy. Logistics is not 100% certain yet: it will be in North Italy, probably in Milano, and will be this fall, probably toward the mid/end of October. What is sure, instead, are the topics: Advanced JavaScript frameworks, REST frameworks, Cloud, lightweight http servers, real-time web, low-ceremony web frameworks, both in .NET and in other technologies. We’ll probably launch a call for...

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...

UGIALT.net conf 7: proposals, dates and voting

During the last 3 weeks I’ve been pretty busy with the organization of the UGIALT.net of next 21st January. This post is a quick update on the status of the Call For Presenters and the next steps that will lead to the big day. First of all: the official closing date for the CFP is November 27, at 23:59 CET, so you still have 9 days to think about something and submit it. So far, we have received 29 proposals, from 23 different speakers, and the agenda will have 3 tracks of 5 slots and one track with...

Fix the date and call for presenters: 7th UGIALT.net Conf, 21 January 2012

The usual annual UGIALT.net conference will take place on the 21 of January (21/1/12… another palindrome day) in Milano, in the same place it’s being held since 4 years: in the offices of Avanade Italy, near Milano Central Railway Station. Registration will open sometime in December, but for the moment we are opening the call for presenter: if you want to share an ALT.NET experience or topic with other people, don’t hesitate to propose a session for the conference. The call will close around mid/end November and if we receive more proposals than slot available we’ll setup a public voting. Just...

What I liked of Agile.NET 2011 Europe

A few weeks ago I attended the Agile.NET 2011 Europe conference, in Gent. In this post I just want collect some links to the slides of the event, and give some personal comments on the sessions and topics. Agile from A to Z It all started very early on Monday (probably it’s standard here in Belgium, but it’s my first conference that starts with the first session at 9:00am) with a nice keynote from Jon Jagger, titled “Agile from A to Z”. It was a nice collections of quotes and facts about Agile. My favorite were one about...

Agile .NET 2011 Europe happens in 3 weeks and discount code

Last week I registered to the Agile .NET 2011 Europe conference, held in Gent, on 10 - 11 October, and I’m really looking forward to it. I think that if you live in Belgium (or near Belgium) and are into .NET development this is a conference you cannot miss: 2 days of sessions about Agile Principles and Software Craftsmanship with .NET flavor, and at reasonable price (350€ till end of September and 450€ later, using the coupon code, 300€ till the end of September and 400€ afterwards) and good (IMHO, better and cheaper) replacement for the cancelled StackOverflow DevDays in...

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...

The European NHDay will be streamed online

As probably all my reader know by now, in a few days there will be first edition of the European NHibernate Day, and since all the 220 available seats have gone more than one month ago, to give to everybody the opportunity to watch the speeches we decided that we’ll try and stream the complete event online. We created the ugialtnet account on UStream.TV and two channels that will broadcast the live stream from the two rooms: The Main Room, where Ayende will speak The Small Room, where all the other speakers...

First European NHibernate Day: some updates

The NHibernate Day is just 21 days from today, so I wanted to give some updates on it. Did you receive the email? We sent an email to all the attendees, but seems like there might be some problems with spam (a few people already contacted me saying they didn’t receive anything). If you are registered for the NHDay, but you didn’t receive any email last week, please contact us (using the email specified on the event page) and we will forward the email to you. Call for action: fill the form But...

I’ll be at Stack Overflow DevDays in London

I just bought my ticket for the European edition of StackOverflow DevDays conference, that will be held in London on October 28th. The agenda is not out yet, but I’m pretty sure Jeff and Joel will come out with something interesting, and it seems like it’s not going to be a .NET event, but a technology event about all languages. Will be fun. And will be great to met some of the guys I know that are living in UK and coming to the event as well, like Nic Wise, Barry Dorrans, Simon Philp and the guys from...

Italian ALT.NET Summer Conference: vote the sessions

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. If you are planning to attend to the conference, please join the group, and go voting. Among the many proposals and think that a few require a special mention: “How to design the User Experience”, a skill that...

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...

Italian ALT.NET Conference retrospective

Last Saturday it was the day of the 3rd Italian ALT.NET Conference, held in Milano, and it’s now time to think about it, and learn for the next future conferences. The room was completely full, with around 45-50 people that attended the conference, and I think this shows how people are getting interested in the topics covered during the session. It was a big increase from the first 10 people conference. We experimented with 3 different way of presenting the sessions: Complete OpenSpace discussion for topics we thought everybody knew something about (Domain Driven...

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...
