about event

What is this?

2 years ago Richard Campbell and Carl Franklin jumped in an RV and drove across the United States stopping in every major city recording a live .NET Rocks show.

Well, they're back! With the release of Visual Studio 2012 and Windows 8 they decided to get a bigger RV and do it again but this time we’re taking advantage of them. On 9/29 .NET Rocks and That Conference are throwing a special 1 day only free event. Attendees have a day to immerse themselves in Windows 8, Visual Studio Azure and at the end watch a live recording of .NET Rocks. This is great opportunity for anyone interested in the Microsoft platform.

At each stop .NET Rocks will record a live .NET Rocks! show with a guest star, whom we will fly in for the occasion.

Following that, we (Richard Campbell and Carl Franklin) will each do a presentation around building modern applications on the Windows platform. Carl leans toward development and client-side technology and Richard leans toward DevOps and server-side technology.

There will be food, drink, geeking out, and hopefully some alert locals will know of a pub where we can adjourn after the event to continue the conversation.



6:00 pm - onwards
