Back to Perth-fection

This week, the travel schedule takes my colleague, Andrew Marsland and I to Perth in Western Australia. This is our second time to the capital city and we're looking forward to connecting with the local developer community.

Flight from Sydney to Perth

Andrew and I are big-time fans of the Perth / Fremantle area. There's lots to do and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. For example, the last time we were here, we made sure to visit the Little Creatures brewery in Fremantle. Incidentally, Little Creatures happens to be one of my favourite beers here in Australia. At the brewery, not only did we have a wonderful meal, we had some excellent beers as well. Shortly after our meal, we walked out of the brewery just as the sun was setting over the Indian Ocean. I seem to remember turning to my workmates who were with me at the time and saying, "Why the hell didn't we come here earlier?"

We've got a pretty full itinerary for our visit.

First, Andrew and I will be talking to local partners who specialize in web development with Sitefinity. We'll be highlighting some of the latest features found in our latest release, which added support for ASP.NET MVC. I'd encourage you to check out our online demo of Sitefinity 5.1 and give it a spin.

Next, we'll be at WALGA to showcase what's possible with Telerik tools and technologies. Here, we'll be showing attendees how they can take advantage of Telerik to build, test, and manage web development projects. Specifically, we'll highlight Sitefinity and others.

Finally, we'll be hanging out with members of the Perth .NET developer community. I'll be delivering a presentation covering everything and anything from Telerik. I've dubbed this presentation, Life, the Universe, and Everything (Telerik). Basically, I'll be walking folks through our technologies like Kendo UI, TeamPulse, our Just* tools, Test Studio, and, of course, Sitefinity. I'll also be covering topics such as Windows 8 and .NET in general. If you're in the area, join me for a night of developer awesomeness.
