What a lovely time we had at DotNetFringe last week here in my hometown of Portland. Wonderful speakers, great topics, good friends, and an energized open source community. Videos will be coming soon, I'm told, for you to enjoy!

What is/was .NET Fringe?

.NET Fringe is a new conference focused on .NET developers who are breaking the rules and pushing the boundaries. The .NET platform is more interesting today than it ever has been! The old Microsoft that was at odds with Open Source has been replaced with one that is actively contributing to OSS and hosts a huge number of important projects on GitHub! The .NET OSS community has been collaborating and creating new, really exciting, interesting, and innovative projects which are changing the landscape. They are defining the future!

We had a great keynote from .NET OG Jimmy Bogard and lots of amazing talks. Here's just a sample:

And really, so very much more. This is just a taste of the fun, fast, and often 300-level .NET content that the community brought to .NET Fringe.

The DotNetFringe 3D Printing Labs!We also reached out to the Portland 3D Printing Lab and setup a number of inexpensive 3D Printers and had them running the whole time! I've been into 3D Printing of late and promoting the Maker Movement and we wanted to bring the joy of making to .NET Fringe as well! Many thanks to Ben and Bob for helping with this project!

Fringe was a great kick off to conference season for me.


Next up is BUILD in San Francisco. We've got some surprising announcements that are gonna blow your mind. You were impressed with what we've been doing with .NET and open source? We're just getting started. Big stuff coming soon.


If you couldn't get into BUILD or missed .NET Fringe, join me down in Arizona in May for AngleBrackets and DevIntersections.

This time I'm also joined with my friend from CodeNewbie and Ruby Rogue, Saron Yitbarek to talk about all the great stuff we can do as developers on the open web.

AngleBrackets will have sessions on node.js, ASP.NET 5, CSS, JavaScript, the Ionic Framwework, Google Analytics, AngularJS, IOT, Roslyn, and so much more.

Register now for AngleBrackets and be sure to check out the Package deals that include Pre-Conference Workshops AND a Surface 3 or Xbox! Here's a nice video promo showing the fun we have at AB.

I'm looking forward to meeting you, Dear Reader, at a conference one day, perhaps this year, perhaps next! Be well.

Are those dotnetfringe talks available to stream?
April 16, 2015 13:27
More or less same question as the first commenter: what are the links for, seeing how there's no video nor any other form of usable content on the site linked? (talking about .NET Fringe here)

The talks sound interesting based on titles alone but that's it :)

Build was really amazing last year. I can't wait to see what's coming up for Windows 10, .Net , VS2015, Roslyn, etc.
April 16, 2015 15:59
Ditto on videos. Would be awesome to see them.
April 16, 2015 16:27
Would love to go to these talks but stuck in South Africa, what a letdown. Is there some code examples or videos, especially for the "OWIN, an update" session?
April 16, 2015 17:31
Relax, folks.

Video takes time to edit and the conference just concluded 2 days ago. I'm sure videos of talks will be available soon, and I'm sure Scott will update this post with links, because that's the type of guy he is.

I actually said "videos coming soon" at the top of the post. ;)
April 16, 2015 19:50
@Scott So you did! To be honest mate I skipped the bits you wrote and looked for the linky goodness :-)

I got distracted with the first link and then immediately wanted the videos and forgot to read the rest!

I always read the blog post first, and then I read the comments.

Seriously cannot wait for some of the announcements - they really are going to blow everyones minds, twice.
April 17, 2015 9:30
I just read the comments

What about .net confs in Europe?
April 27, 2015 17:27
Any plans on visiting the UK Scott?

What happened to ALT.NET and how is this ".NET Fringe" any different?

Just listened to your discussion on .NET rocks. You expertly exposed the issue with the way Mr. Nugent was framing his discussion. You can't be inclusive when you speak as if everything opposing your point of view as vile and evil. He definitely comes across with the attitude that everyone should feel the way he does and if they don't then they are stupid. It doesn't facilitate a productive environment for collaboration on any project.

Still no video from event?
