Scott Hanselman Keynotes at the Heartland Developers Conference 2011

The Future of Microsoft Developer Technology

hdc11logoMicrosoft Principal Program Manager, Scott Hanselman, will be delivering the opening keynote at developer conference HDC 2011 on Omaha, NE next month.

Hanselman will be opening the event with a session on the future of Microsoft technology for the developer. With everyone on tenterhooks about the news expected to come out of BUILD 2011, it’s probably not surprising that the session description for this keynote simply says “surprises in store” Smile

In addition to the keynote, Scott will also be delivering a session on the evolution of web app development with the Microsoft stack. Something tells me Scott has been spending a bit too much time with ASP.NET MVC and the “Magic Unicorn Edition” of Entity Framework though, since the title of this session is Open Source and the Microsoft Web Stack of Love.

Over and above the future of web technologies, Scott will also offer the chance to spend an hour just sitting and chatting in an open forum hour called Ask Hanselman: “Off the Cuff”.

Register for HDC 2011

If the Heartland Developers Conference is not on your conference radar I would seriously consider taking a look at what they have on offer. Hanselman is not the first high-profile Microsoft representative to appear at HDC. In fact he is not the first Scott either!

Scott Gu has been a long-standing supporter of HDC commenting:

One of the best developer events in the country, period. Each time I’ve come I am blown away with what you guys do in the Mid-West.
