Interested in learning how new innovations in Microsoft's Web Platform and developer tools like ASP.NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 can make you a more productive web developer? If you're currently working with PHP, Ruby, ASP or older versions of ASP.NET and want to hear how you can create amazing websites more easily, then register for a Web Camp near you today!

Microsoft's Web Camps are free, two-day events that allow you to learn and build on the Microsoft Web Platform. At camp, you will hear from Microsoft experts on the latest components of the platform, including ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC, jQuery, Entity Framework, IIS, Visual Studio 2010 and much more.

Web Camps also provide the opportunity to get hands on with labs and get creative by building in teams. All this with Microsoft experts on hand to guide you through.

Here, we meet the mastermind behind Web Camps, James Senior, to get some details about these camps and to get some insights into the thinking behind this new form of in-person training for web developers. Please note that during the conversation James mentioned that Scott Hanselman will be presenting in Singapore. In fact, he meant to say Sydney.

We look forward to seeing you at camp soon! http://www.webcamps.ms/

      Whenever I try to go to http://www.webcamps.ms, it prompts me to download the HTML, rather than view it in the browser.  Is there a MIME type issue with your Web server (or my proxy)?

       

      EDIT: Problem resolved; the site comes up fine.  Looking forward to this!

      Weird. What browser are you using? Any other details of your configuration? Renders fine for me.

      That sounds like an awesome event - especially the second day!

       

      I have heard in the video that the event is completly free. However, I canot see this from the web site http://www.webcamps.ms alone. May be I am just too stupid to see that or may be it is really not there.

       

      However, you may want to make this "little fact" more obvious! Smiley

      I'm from Portugal and the nearest country for me is England.

      By the way, there is an issue with reCaptcha key on Web Events for London.
