Today, I am really excited to announce that Scott Hunter, Principal Program Manager for Microsoft ASP.NET, has agreed to do a developer keynote presentation at this fall’s DNN World conference on October 10-12th in Orlando, Florida.
Scott Hunter has been at Microsoft on the Web Platform and Tools team as a Principal Program Manager for the past five years focusing on .NET Web Development. This includes working on .NET 3.5, .NET 4 and the upcoming .NET 4.5 plus ASP.NET Web Forms, Web Pages and Razor Syntax, ASP.NET MVC and most recently ASP.NET Web API. Prior to working at Microsoft, Scott spent a couple of years building intranet websites for managing the oil fields of large oil firms in California. His first programming experience was working for a startup in California called Mustang Software building bulletin board systems in Turbo Pascal.
Based on the massive wave of next generation server and web development tools being released by Microsoft this fall, coupled with our plans to embrace a client services development model ( ie. Web API, jQuery, Knockout.js, etc… ) in DotNetNuke 7.0, we felt that Scott would be an excellent candidate to address the developer audience at this years DNN World conference.
If you are interested in hearing more about Scott’s role and background at Microsoft I would encourage you to watch a recent interview with him conducted by Tim Huckaby for Bytes by MSDN, or check out his recent appearance on .NET Rocks!
I should also mention that the early discount for Commercial Customers & Partners was so popular that the deadline was extended to July 15th… so I encourage you to move quickly to take advantage of the 50% savings!
