Speaking at NDC 2011

March 17, 2011

One of my goals to help give back to the .NET/Mono community that I am proud to be a part of, is to take up speaking. I am excited to announce that I can cross that item off my list now, because I have my first confirmed speaking engagement at the 2011 Norwegian Developers Conference from June 8th - 10th in Oslo, Norway. I wanted to include an image of a happy monkey to show how ecstatic I am about this opportunity, but the images that showed up in my search results were a little disturbing.

NDC 2011

I’ve been lucky enough to be given a slot on day one June 8th from 15:00 - 16:00 to do a session on Moncaí called “Let me introduce my Moncaí!”. Here’s the abstract:

Cloud services are changing the way we approach developing application’s. Learn how Platform–as–a–Service (PaaS) takes it a step further and helps you forget about server’s and focus on your problems. We’ll start by discussing the philosophies behind PaaS and then dive into using Moncaí to deploy, build, and scale your web, mobile, or social application’s written in .NET.

With the keynote to be given by Scott Guthrie (AKA The Gu) and an agenda that contains a great selection of speakers, this years NDC is gearing up to be the best one yet. So what are you waiting for, get your ticket now. I’m looking forward in meeting everybody that attends and throwing some beers back with you.

If Norway is not a reasonable destination for you to attend a conference and if you’re interested in hearing me speak, or know of any opportunities that you think I might be interested in, please drop me an email. I’d be happy to speak about Moncaí, PaaS, .NET, Mono, MonoDevelop, and CouchDB.
