Speaking of Dev video resources... (with "State of .NET - The Road to Windows 8" now available)


Welcome to!

This week on

  • 108) 01/16/2012 The State of .NET - The Road to Windows 8 by Markus Egger is your 1 stop source for recorded User Group presentations and materials. Over the past decade that I have been involved in the software development community I have attended many wonderful presentations, just to arrive at work the next day forgetting a key piece of information, or wanting to share some of the content with a coworker. The goal of is to capture those presentations and post them online available for FREE for members of the community to watch. Providing this content will also provide exposure to groups and speakers that members of the community would not normally have access to, or know about.

UserGroup.TV - State of .NET - The Road to Windows 8


Speaker: Markus Egger


The industry is in a state of flux. What does that mean for your software projects today and tomorrow? Will your skills be outdated? Will your current investment become obsolete? What should you focus on right now? And what will become important a year or two down the road? Will there be .NET in the future? And what other technologies do you need to learn?

This free event attempts to answer these questions and more, by taking an unbiased look at current and future development with .NET and other relevant Microsoft technologies. This includes Visual Studio 2010 technologies as well as an in-depth look at what is coming in the next version of Visual Studio (“VS11”) and Windows 8.


Topics Include:

  • Windows 8
    • Metro Development
    • The impact of Windows 8 on today’s development effort
    • The future of C# and VB
    • The future of HTML and JavaScript
    • The future of C++
  • WPF, Silverlight, and other XAML technologies today and tomorrow
  • Architecture to serve the needs of modern applications
  • The need for SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) today and tomorrow
  • HTML 5, CSS3, and JavaScript
  • ASP.NET MVC, Razor and jQuery
  • “Visual Studio Async”
  • Windows Phone 7 and other mobile devices
  • and more!

This is a video resource that I've heard mentioned but never visited. Shame on me... Am following the video feed now to catch future additions and I'll also be back to catch up on the stuff that's already there...

BTW, I caught this presentation when Markus gave it in Los Angeles. It's a pretty darn good session if you're thinking about Win8 dev.
