Telerik blogs

There's no better time to be a web developer. Join us on the Modern Web Tour to have some fun and learn the past, present and future of web development.

This July, the Progress Telerik team, Microsoft, and .NET Rocks!'s very own Richard Campbell are hitting the road for the Modern Web Tour—a free event designed to entertain and educate you about the path ahead for the modern web developer.

To understand the present and the future, you need to understand the past, and Richard Campbell is just the storyteller to do that. He will kick off each event with a history of the web. If you haven’t heard him speak, you are in for a real treat.

Then our very own Sam Basu will talk about “Modern Web Development with Polished UI.” He’ll review the web development options—WebForms, MVC, Razor, .NET Core paired with JavaScript—and walk you through the polished performant UI tools available from Progress, like our Telerik and Kendo UI products. Word has it, he may also provide insight into what our product teams are working on for the modern web.

Laurent Bugnion from Microsoft and Microsoft Regional Director Christian Weyer will follow Sam. They will cover ASP.NET Core & Azure—and maybe even give you a sneak peek at Blazor, Ooui and Uno.

We'll end each day with a live .NET Rocks! show with a different special guest in each city, including the likes of Jessica Engstrom.

We will make three stops on the tour:

Berlin, Germany | Tuesday, July 24
Microsoft Atrium
Charlottenstraße 46
10117 Berlin

Zurich, Switzerland | Wednesday July 25
Microsoft Switzerland
Richtistrasse 3
8304 Wallisellen

Munich, Germany | Thursday, July 26
Microsoft Germany
Walter-Gropius-Straße 5
80807 München

Each event will run from 9:30 a.m. til 2:30 p.m.

Lunch will be served. Knowledge will be imparted. Surprises will most definitely occur. 

It's all free. And in person. But seating is limited so register today.

Oh! We are exploring the idea of bringing the Modern Web Tour to other cities around the world. If you want us to add your hometown as a tour stop, let me know! Leave me a comment below or tweet the city of your choice using the hashtag #heyTelerik.
