I'll Be Speaking About Open Source at OpenForce

0 comments suggest edit

I’ve been invited to participate on a couple of panels at the upcoming DotNetNuke OpenForce ‘07 conference, November 5-8 in Las Vegas.

  • .NET Open Source Panel with Scott Guthrie
  • .NET Open Source Architectures Panel

I’m pretty excited to be on the same panel as ScottGu himself, the man who never sleeps. Both of the panels I am on are focused on Open Source on the .NET platform, something I love to talk about. Well that and Subtext.

So what is the DotNetNuke OpenForce conference?

This is a DotNetNuke conference (so DotNetNuke sessions are emphasized), but with a bigger focus than just DotNetNuke. Keeping true to its roots, they want to help expand the visibility of other open source projects on the .NET platform.

Towards that goal, DotNetNuke created the OpenForce concept which will provide a conference venue for some of the largest .NET open source projects. This is a way for open source projects to band together, showcase their technology, and exchange ideas and support.

This conference will be co-located with the ASP.NET Connections conference, so I’ll be able to attend sessions at both. So if you’re going to be at either conference, leave me a comment!

And I’ll do my best to keep the “You Knows” to a minimum. If you’re there, feel free to keep a scorecard.

    He'll be discussing his thoughts on whether "craps" or "let it ride" is a better bet. Also, he will compare and contrast the room accommodations at the Venetian vs. the Mandalay. Should be a riveting talk.

    Besides the topics my lovely wife mentioned, I'll be on a panel, so it depends on what questions are asked. But most likely, I'll be talking about Subtext, Subtext, and Subtext.
    And maybe other open source projects such as MbUnit, Log4Net, RSS Bandit, etc...

    @Phil - Don't forget to throw in a "DotNetNuke Rocks!" every once in a while ;-)
    As for the panels - we invited Phil and several other leaders in the .Net open source space to disuss their projects and open source on the .Net platform. Of course DotNetNuke Corp. is footing the bill, and the attendees will mostly be DNN community members, so keeping the talks relevant to the audience is highly recommmended (wouldn't want Phil to get a bunch of 1's on the evals). Scott Guthrie's panel will be a discussion of the general state of Open Source in .Net. The other panel will be a discussion of common architectural problems that the various panelists face and how we chose to solve those problems in our open source projects.
