ASP.NET Developer Conference & Expo - Spring 2002

by John Peterson

On March 25th and 26th we helped run the first-ever ASP.NET Developer Conference & Expo in San Jose, CA. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of the attendees for participating and to give those of you who couldn't attend a taste of what you missed.

The conference was held at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, California and was hosted by 4GuysFromRolla, 15 Seconds, ASPWire, and ASP 101 (us!). We had a great set of speakers including some of the leading personalities of the ASP.NET community (Scott Mitchell from 4GuysFromRolla, Rob Howard - the ASP.NET program manager from Microsoft, and myself were among them). That's right... they even managed to get yours truly up on stage to speak on the topic of Migrating to ASP.NET.

Note: Scott's slides from "What Makes .NET Different?," are available over on 4GuysFromRolla.

From what I could gather by talking with attendees, it was an informational and educational experience for all. In addition to the sessions, attendees were given a chance to talk face-to-face with many of the speakers and get their .NET questions answered. At the same time, it was a great chance for the speakers (many of whom were authors and webmasters) to get to interact with some of the community on a more personal level then they can usually achieve through website or book channels.

Note: If you're interested, I'll be adding some more pictures and some scans of the show book to this page once I get home and recover from the jet lag.
We had some technical problems with our digital camera and most of the pictures ended out coming out very darkly, but here are a couple that came out decently:

For attendees who'd like final versions of the slide presentations, you'll be able to find them all here shortly. If it asks you to login, the username and password were included on the first page of your conference book.
