On Thursday February 1st, Scott Guthrie will come to Belgium for the first time. I'm pretty happy with this, as Scott is one of the co-creators of ASP.NET, he's an excellent speaker, and very knowledgeable. We've taken this opportunity to have him talk on the next VISUG (Visual Studio User Group) event. Scott will give two talks:

  • From 16:30 till 18:00: First Look at Visual Studio and ASP.NET “Orcas”
    This session will cover some of the great new features that will be coming soon with Visual Studio and ASP.NET "Orcas".  Learn how web development with .NET will continue to improve and evolve, and talk about some of the upcoming features and how best to use them.
  • From 18:30 till 20:00: ASP.NET 2.0 and ASP.NET AJAX Tips and Tricks 
    This session will provide some great tips and tricks on how to improve your web development today with ASP.NET 2.0, ASP.NET AJAX, and Visual Studio 2005.  It will cover VS project management recommendations, ASP.NET 2.0 UI techniques, ASP.NET AJAX suggestions, performance improvements, and deployment best practices.

It is possible to attend just one of the two sessions.

The location of the event is not yet confirmed but it will be in the neighboorhood of Brussels. More information and registration is available on the VISUG website: http://www.visug.be/ScottGuthrieEvent/tabid/69/Default.aspx.
