Topic:  Surviving the JavaScript apocalypse as a .Net Developer
Speaker: Josh Carroll


The JavaScript hordes are invading, and have infiltrated every single facet of development. It’s on the server, the client, and even in embedded devices.  We know that JavaScript is gaining in popularity every single day, but where does this leave .Net? Do we abandon everything we have learned, get a Node.js tattoo and move to the valley in search of JavaScript nirvana?

JavaScript is becoming more and more important, but .Net is still just as powerful and relevant. We’ll talk about how you can leverage your existing skills to make you more productive on the client with JavaScript, and why .Net is still a great choice for the server.


Speaker Bio
Josh Carroll is a passionate software developer who has spent the past decade making a living on the .Net stack. He loves the web and he has recently been working on building rich web applications using a combination of Angular.js,  ASP.Net MVC and WebAPI. When he isn’t writing code or speaking about technology, Josh likes to spend time with his wife and three (soon to be four) children in Knoxville, Tennessee.
