Building Web Apps with ASP.NET Jump Start

NEW DATE! Unfortunately, Scott lost his voice over the weekend and is fighting a nasty cold! Please send him your well-wishes if you get a chance. As a result, we’re forced to postpone the event to Friday, February 22, 2013. This event promises to be one of the most engaging Jump Starts yet, so we hope this change doesn’t cause too many conflicts. Of course, the recording will be posted to MVA within a week if you can’t make this new time.

This Jump Start is tailored for experienced application developers interested in leveraging ASP.NET and Visual Studio 2012 to offer modern apps that target modern browsers. Two of Microsoft’s most seasoned ASP.NET speakers, Scott Hanselman and Jon Galloway, will provide an accelerated introduction to building modern web applications with ASP.NET 4.5 and ASP.NET MVC 4. In this course, they will target key scenarios like building mobile ready websites, social web applications as well as modern HTML5 browser features.
