1. NodeJS is The New Thing and it also happens to be a lot of fun and quite capable. In this talk Rob will take you from 0 to production using NodeJS, the NPM package management system, MongoDB, ExpressJS, and a handful of other NodeJS modules. You'll see various ways to structure your application using plain Javascript here, some CoffeeScript there and get an overall sense of what NodeJS can do, and why you should care.

  2. The newest addition to Microsoft’s web stack is ASP.NET Web API, designed to offer developers simple yet powerful access to host HTTP-centric web APIs, including automatic content negotiation, a new lightweight strongly-typed HTTP object model, and the ability to host your APIs anywhere: inside your existing web apps (including MVC, Web Forms, and Web Pages) as well as self-hosted inside console apps and services. Brad will combine the power of Web API with SignalR, JavaScript, and HTML 5 to demonstrate truly modern and highly-scalable application design.

  3. GitHub.com is the place for open source developers to collaborate on their projects. But there's a perception that GitHub and Git are the domain of Mac and *nix users. Not so! In this talk, Phil Haack, a GitHub employee, will show how GitHub makes open source collaboration fun and tools and techniques for using Git with GitHub on Windows.

  4. Learn about the library that is making ASP.NET developers everywhere gasp in amazement. What is SignalR? It’s a persistent connection abstraction library for web development on .NET. Inspired by socket.io and now.js on Node, SignalR is allowing .NET developers to create experiences not previously possibly in a browser, with an easy to use high-level API that looks like magic.

  5. JavaScript, the language that we all laughed at and our usage of it was limited to copy/paste of scripts to have some dynamic content in a web page has all grown up. From jQuery on the client-side to node.js on the server, everywhere you look there’s JavaScript. Unfortunately there’s also a ton of horrible, twisted and somewhat convoluted code that would make any developer that remotely cares about clean code suicidal.

    A dynamic language that has somewhat given us a license to do anything we want has been abused to the point that much of the blame has been placed on the language itself as opposed to the developers. In this talk we’ll discuss some of the patterns and anti-patterns of JavaScript, things you should and shouldn’t do. If you care about writing clean and maintainable code, you should care about it in any language!
