Promo As the leaves turn to gold and the autumn mists descend, your average developer’s mind automatically turns to the age-old question of... how can I make my website even better? Well, you could get in out of the cold and turn on to Microsoft’s training sessions.

There are a whole range of live and online events, and you can read full details here.

Particular highlights include an all-day Web Dev Camp in Reading on 17 October, where Microsoft technical evangelists Martin Beeby and Martin Kearn will show you how to develop "beautiful, interactive, and high-performing websites using Microsoft's web tools and Azure cloud platform".

There will be practical instruction plus hands-on sessions such as:

  • Introduction to ASP.NET and Visual Studio 2013 Web Tools
  • Building Web Applications using the latest ASP.NET technologies
  • Building web front ends for both desktop and mobile using the latest web standards
  • API Services for both web and devices
  • Running, improving and maintaining a site in the real world
  • Real-time Communications with SignalR

On 30 October Martin Beeby will be hosting an introductory webinar, “Building High Performing Websites with Azure”. As the web battles for eyeballs with native applications, it’s becoming increasingly important for sites to consider ways to improve speed and performance. In this session, Martin Beeby, a technical evangelist at Microsoft, will show you what you can do to improve the performance of your websites and web apps with the cloud.

And if you can’t hold on for either of those, don’t forget Steve Planky Plank’s weekly webinar, “Get Started with Azure”, which runs every Tuesday from 12.30 to 13:30 and shows you how to get started with free cloud services.

Each webinar is followed by a guest speaker, starting with Martin Beeby’s new talk on 21 October presentation: “High Performance Web Platform”.
