I’m Speaking At Mix 2009

asp.net mvc, asp.net 0 comments suggest edit

MIX09_SpeakerBling_VegasStrip_136x186 I finally have my registration worked out and I’m officially going to Mix09 this year! Woohoo! Not only am I going, but I’ll be speaking at Mix for the first time, so be sure to come by and say hi.

I’ve mentioned this before, but Mix is easily one of my favorite Microsoft conferences. Jeff Atwood said it well:

MIX is by far my favorite Microsoft conference after attending the ’06 and ’07 iterations…

What I love about Mix is that it …

  • is relatively small and intimate, at around 2,000 attendees.
  • seamlessly merges software engineering and design.
  • includes a lot of non-Microsoft folks, even those that are traditionally hostile to Microsoft, so there’s plenty of perspective.

I’ve been to every one so far:

I’ll be giving the following two sessions at Mix this year:

MIX09-T50F ASP.NET MVC: America’s Next Top Model View Controller Framework

See how to build a simple application that highlights some of the key capabilities of ASP.NET MVC. Also, learn how to improve productivity using some of the cool new tooling features

MIX09-T44F Microsoft ASP.NET Model View Controller (MVC): Ninja on Fire Black Belt Tips

See a walkthrough of several tips and tricks for getting the most out of the ASP.NET MVC framework.

The first talk is an introductory overview and the second one allows me to dig in a bit more.

I’ve been working hard on putting together some demos so I will hopefully have something interesting to show off. In any case, if you’re going to the conference, leave a comment and when you’re there, be sure to come by and say hello.

Also, let me know if there’s anything specific you’d like me to cover. This should be a fun one.

    Lol. America's Next Top Model View Controller Framework. Cute title. :-)
    I'd like to see discussion on how to structure more complex ASP.NET MVC projects. There's a lot of debate over whether controllers should speak to repositories or service layers with DTOs, where server-side validation should be put, and other common scenarios that occur in most apps but just don't seem to have a very satisfactory solution yet in the ASP.NET MVC framework.

    I won one of Hanselman's haiku conference passes and am so excited to see MVC on the agenda!

    I should be going - still waiting for confirmation actually but I will come up and say hello regardless - will probably be one of the few British guys there...

    Great. I'll be there. I'd also like to see maybe 10 minutes devoted to tips/tricks about how to make ASP.NET MVC speedy.

    I wish I was able to come... do you know if they are going to be available as the one at last PDC?
    I might even consider paying for them :)

    Mix06 was a blast, the first time we met in fact - http://haacked.com/archive/2006/03.aspx
    Highlight was the MySpace party (before they were famous) ;-)
