Progressive .NET Tutorials 2011

This is a special announcement for the Progressive .NET Tutorials.

This year, #prognet will be held on September 5-7 and Ian Cooper has put together a great programme, wworking closely with our community! Some exciting new names will feature this year, including Google’s Jon Skeet on Async Methods in C#5 and the great Ian Robinson of Neo Technology on RESTful Web Service Development in .NET.

We’ll have the pleasure of some returning experts as well this year, and are delighted to feature tutorials by Christian Hassa and Gaspar Nagy on Defining and Automating Acceptance Criteria with Gherkin and Specflow, and Ian Cooper and Seb Lambla are preparing an in-depth tutorial on patterns and practices of package management.

Given the huge interest in JavaScript and User Experience this year, perhaps it is no surprise Dylan Beattie will kick off the afternoon on Monday, with a tutorial titled Front-end Tips for Back-end Devs covering the importance of dependency management, loose coupling and abstractions when writing the UI for our web applications, whilst Damjan Vujnovic is planning to dedicate a hands-on workshop to TDD in JavaScript, on Tuesday morning.

As always, joining the Progressive .NET Tutorials will mean some heavy exposure on Software Craftsmanship, CI and Testing related subjects. In addition to some of the BDD related topics above, Simon Brown will run his workshop on Load Testing, performance and scalability issues, whilst Paul Stack will share his skills and experience on how to move from CI to continuous delivery.

Prognet wouldn’t be complete without featuring some cool web app frameworks too. This year, Adam Granicz will proudly show of his WebSharper Web Application Framework for F#, whilst the creator of Simple.Data Mark Rendle and one of the authors of Nancy Steven Robbinswill give a demo-heavy tutorial on, you guessed it, Simple.Data and Nancy
