A few days ago on Twitter @red7_liu tweeted:

微软的Web Camps大会要来中国了,大牛Scott Hanselman会来.

This part "大牛" as I understand, effectively means "Big Cow."

"Microsoft Web Camps Conference is coming to China, Big Cow Scott Hanselman will come."

If that's not a good enough reason to go to Microsoft WebCamps, then what is? ;)

This isn't a conference, it's a camp, like a classroom. Here's the schedule.

  • Day 1: Learning: Web Platform from the ground up
  • Day 2: Hack day, labs and building apps in teams

First day we learn, second day we code.

What are Web Camps?  Web Camps are free, two-day events that allow attendees to learn and build on the Microsoft Web Platform. At camp, they will hear from Microsoft experts on the latest components of the platform, including ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC, jQuery, Entity Framework, IIS, Visual Studio 2010 and much more. Web Camps also provide the opportunity to get hands on with labs and get creative by building apps in teams with prizes at the end of the day.  All this with Microsoft experts on hand to guide people through.

Locations

I'll be at the boldface events. They are free, sign up now!

Too bad you aren't coming to Moscow, it's nice here.

By the way, who and how decides which of the evangelists goes where?

大牛 in fact means geek/nerd, not big cow. :) As I am leaving Microsoft for a new opportunity, sadly I won't be able to join this camp in Shanghai. But welcome to China, Scott.

geek/nerd is inaccurate. it means a person who is a master in one of the field, a top legend.

I'm looking forward welcoming those of you going to the Toronto stop. My name is Paul Laberge, and I'm a Microsoft Web Platform Advisor for Microsoft Canada and local host for the Toronto event. I'll be at the Camp, so stop by and say hello! We are expecting some really great sessions and discussions, so make sure you bring your questions, your creativity and your laptop!

You should say: This part "大牛" as I understand, literally means "Big Cow." It effectively means expert in one's field as Liang mentioned.

Who is the target audience for these camps?

Some of the sessions look like beginner level stuff...

Phil - Yes, that's a better way to say it. I assumed it was obvious, as I'm a language dude, and that's my bad.

David - Beginners. It's 101-202 level content. NOT advanced.

Brian - Ask @jsenior on Twitter

still no dates in Italy? too bad, I was going to suggest you some restaurants :P

You shouldn't have told everyone the literal translation it might become a thing. "And now lets welcome Big Cow Scott Hanselman".

All these comments on where you aren't going, but from looking at the itinerary, looks like you'll be doing a HECK of a lot more travel than I'd want to do for work!

But, I'm sure there'll be some good times in there!

Big cow<g>
