ASP.NET in Moscow!

I’m traveling to Russia and speaking in Moscow next week at the DevConf. This will be the first time that I have visited Russia, and I know that there is a strong ASP.NET community in Russia, so I am very excited about the trip.

I’m speaking at the DevConf ( I don’t speak Russian, so the only words that I recognize off the home page of the conference website are ASP.NET and JavaScript (PHP, Perl, Python, and Ruby must be Russian words).


I’m giving talks on both ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC:

What’s New in ASP.NET 4 Web Forms

Learn about the new features just released with ASP.NET 4 Web Forms and Visual Studio 2010 that enable you to be more productive and build better websites. Learn how to take control of your markup, client IDs, and view state. Learn how to take advantage of routing with Web Forms to make your websites more search engine friendly.


What’s New in ASP.NET MVC 2

Come learn about the new features being introduced with ASP.NET MVC 2. Templated helpers allow associating edit and display elements with data types automatically. Areas provide a means of dividing a large Web application into multiple projects. Data annotations allows attaching metadata attributes on a model to control validation. Client validation enables form field validation without the need to perform a roundtrip to the server. Learn how these new features enable you to be more productive when building ASP.NET MVC applications.

Hope to see you at the conference next week!

  3. Sergei Z says:

    Good for Moscow! I would advise everyone attending to go see Stephen’s presentations. He is one lucid, thorough, and deliberate speaker, which is the sign of someone who understands subject matter deeply. You won’t be disappointed! Go get them, Stephen!

  4. Dmitry says:

    Just finished listening to your speech at DevConf, thank you. I think, you are one of the most professional speakers at the conference, so I was surprised such a small audience activity (bad for them).

  5. Igor says:

    Yesterday was listening to your talks at DevConf.
    Thank you so much for visiting Moscow and giving such incredable talks!
    It is remarkable of you to explain the technology in a way that’s easy to digest.
    Thank you, Stephen!

    Sincerely Yours, Igor
