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: Voting and registration

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...

Ruby on Rails vs ASP.NET MVC slides, demos and video are online

During last Saturday’s UGIALT.Net Conference in Milano I shared a talk together with Italian RoR expert Sandro Paganotti: “RoR vs ASP.NET MVC”. We had 20 minutes each to build a super easy conference registration page and also explaining to the audience what we were doing. The goal of the talk was not to choose the best platform or the most productive one, but to show the steps needed to setup and create a simple but fully functional web application. It was a very nice experience and I think it showed how similar the the web frameworks are. To...

As announced around one month ago, the 6th UGIALT.net conference will happen next February 19th in Milano. Tomorrow morning, 11 January 2011, at 11:11, the registration will be opened.

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...

Debreefing the NHDay

Less than 10 days ago the First European NHibernate Day took place in Bologna: here are some comments on the day and in a future post, being among the organizers, the process that lead to event. The Attendance Let’s start from the event day: even if the biggest part of the attendance was Italian, it was amazing to see so many people coming from various countries, and travelling even from Sweden and Norway to attend this event. This made the European NHDay a really international event. The sessions Unfortunately I was not able...

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...

Announcing NHDay final Agenda

During the month of July we ran the public voting for the agenda of the second track of the NHDay that will happen in October in Bologna. So, without further ado, here is the agenda of the second track as selected by the attendees: From relational data to ObjectSpaces – Andrea Saltarello Loosely Coupled Complexity - Unleash the power of your domain model, using Event Sourcing and CQRS - Alberto Brandolini Real World Application Development with NHibernate, FluentNHibernate and Castle Windsor - Chris Canal...

UgiAlt.NET together with DotNetMarche organizes the First European NHibernate Day: it will be held in Bologna (Italy) next 9th October. The event is open to everyone (not only from Italy) as most of the sessions will be delivered in English.

The topics It will be a full day free two tracks conference on everything about NHibernate: the main track will be on medium/advanced topics on NHibernate itself, and will be presented by...

5th Italian ALT.NET Conference (winter edition)

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.

ASP.NET MVC T-Shirt by CodeClimber

In order to promote our book on ASP.NET MVC and to spread some love for the library itself, for the Italian ALT.NET conference I printed 40 T-Shirts similar to the one that Chad Myers created on Zazzle last year. It was quite an interesting experience, as I didn’t know how many people would have been interested in buying such “marketing” t-shirts. And it turned out that quite a few developers wanted them, as you can notice from the people in the first rows of the room. I ran out of T-Shirts, but I’m thinking...

Registration of the Italian ALT.NET Conference is open

Today we opened the registration for the IV Italian ALT.NET Conference, that will be held in Bologna on Saturday June 27th and which is was co-organized together with DotNetMarche. If you are interested in coming, go and register for the conference. But be quick, we opened the registration less than 8 hours ago and we already filled half room (around 45 registered out of 90 seats available). The agenda has not been finalized yet: the survey to decide the topics is still open (if plan to attend the conference and you haven’t voted yet, please...

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...

Ruby <3 .NET: recordings and material are online

I just published the first two recordings from the Italian ALT.NET Conference of last Saturday. The first, and probably more interesting because the session was in English, is Ivan’s one about IronRuby, titled “Ruby <3 .NET”. Ruby <3 .NET from Piyodesign on Vimeo. And the slides and demo are available on the SVN repository for the conference. I also published the last session of the day, that was about Fitnesse and acceptance tests in general, held by Jacopo Franzoi. Here you can see the video (in Italian, sorry) ...

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...

The Italian ALT.NET Conference is here

As I announced a month ago, next Saturday there will be the 3rd Italian ALT.NET Conference in Milano. I'm pretty excited to say that last week all the seats available went sold out, and we probably will expand the limit to 60 to include the people in wait list. The agenda of the event, which is a kind of OpenSpace with "fixed" session, is: How to write User Stories and Planning Game IronRuby, by Ivan Porto Carrero, author of IronRuby in Action Domain Driven Design Advanced TDD in real world ...

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...

At the Italian Agile day in Bologna

Tomorrow I’ll be at the Italian Agile Day in Bologna: it’s going to be “my first time” at an Agile conference and I’m pretty excited about that. Two members of the UGIALT.NET user group, Emanuele Del Bono and Claudio Maccari, are going to drive a TDD on .NET lab, and for those that were not able to take part at the lab (only 12 seats out of 400 people attending the conference) and are interested on listening to SCRUM-W (the wrong approach to Scrum), there is going to be an OpenSpace that will probably be about tools for an...
