We’ve got another “big name international speaker” for ADNUG this month!
Next week, we’re joined by Jon Galloway, a Microsoft Technical Evangelist based in San Diego, California. Jon will be speaking about the new features coming in both ASP.NET 5 and ASP.NET MVC 6. I assume we’ll see the final versions of these around the same time that Visual Studio 2015 ships.
I first came across Jon through his being one of the presenters of the Herding Code podcast (I’ve been listening [since 2009]/2009/08/podcasts-i-listening-too.html)). More recently, I’ve watched some of his courses on Microsoft Virtual Academy, seen him appear weekly in the ASP.NET 5 Community Stand-ups and been following him on Twitter. He’s an engaging, knowledgeable, down-to-earth presenter and I’m anticipating it will be a great meeting.
If you’re in Adelaide, then please register and come along on Thursday 9th April at 12 noon, Microsoft Adelaide, Level 12, 147 Pirie St, Adelaide. Register via http://www.meetup.com/Adelaide-dotNET/events/221073867/
If you’re out of town or just can’t make it in person, then we’ll be running the session via a Google Hangout – so you can still participate in the live session or watch the recording after the event on YouTube.
Look forward to seeing you there in person or online 😀.
(For my own reference)
To resolve this issue in Microsoft SQL Server (often observed when you restore a database that came from another server):
alter authorization on database::[MyDbName] to sa;
In September last year, I took part in the MVA ‘Become a hero’ promotion. By signing up, I got a free t-shirt (and if you know me well, you’ll know that makes perfect sense). In addition by completing a number of online courses from the MVA site, you could then get a novelty figurine (or maybe up to 6 if you did more courses).
I received my t-shirt, but my figurine never arrived. It appeared the super powers of “DevOps Captain Code” also included the ability to get lost in the mail. “Oh well, at least I’ve got a t-shirt”, I thought.
But then yesterday I got home to discover two packages from Microsoft. One was another t-shirt (yay), and the other was the full set of 6 figurines.
So now we have (left to right)
- SQL Server Query Controller
- Azure Cloud Ninja
- Device Management Dr Device
- Windows Server Solid Server
- DevOps Captain Code
- Virtualisation Hypervisor
They’re now gracing my desk at work, much to the bemusement of my colleagues 😀
Figurines and t-shirts aside, if you’re after some quality free online training then there’s some excellent resources at the Microsoft Virtual Academy site. Most courses are run as a live event and then are made available on-demand a few weeks later (useful if the live event clashes with your preferred time to be asleep!)
