INETA ASP.NET Canada Roadshow

I'll be speaking in Vancouver, BC on March 6th, 2006 at .NET BC and in Victoria at the Victoria .NET Developers Group on March 7th, 2006. Both talks are about DasBlog, working on an Open Source application and what code you can steal/borrow from it. Two cities in a row qualifies as a Poor man's Canada Roadshow in my book.

"Scott Hanselman heads the DasBlog Open Source project along with Omar Shahine, following in the footsteps of Clemens Vasters and his dramatic modification of the BlogX engine. DasBlog is now on version 1.8 and is arguably the most successful ASP.NET blogging engine for the single user. DasBlog is now the work of many folks over many years and while it has some very hairy sections of code, it's full of design techniques and reusable components that you can use in your work today.

Topics Covered:

  • Httpmodules
  • Httphandlers
  • Background threads
  • Internationalization
  • Caching
  • Skinning
  • Creating a macro language
  • Web Services that are more than just SOAP
  • More architectural and design concepts that work in any ASP.NET application"

It should be fun. It'll just be me, but Omar will get mad props even though he won't be there. Omar and I have gone through two DasBlog releases together, first the big performance 1.7 release, then the follow-up 1.8 tightening. Currently 1.9 is in the hopper and will be the last .NET 1.x release as we work on a not-so-super-secret DasBlog.Next project. Currently the checked-in source is very much ahead of the 1.8 release with features like Pluggable Rich Editors with FCK and FTB support, Multi-Author/Single-Blog, Custom Plugin Macros, coComment support, and a much-improved commenting workflow.

Hi Scott,
It was a great opportunity for all of us here in Vancouver to hear a speaker like you yesterday. You were simply amazing and it was really great of you to cover a whole bunch of topics and share some cool tools in the short time we had.

Your blog, radio shows, your wealth of knowledge and above all your willingness to share it with the developer community has been a true inspiration for me.

Continue the great work!!! Do you have a calendar which would tell us where and when you would be speaking.
