If you can’t get to a conference, let the conference come to you! There are a ton of free recorded conference presentations online…

Microsoft TechEd

Let’s start with the proverbial 800 pound gorilla. Recent TechEds have recorded the majority of presentations and made them available online the next day.

Check out presentations from last month’s TechEd North America 2012 or last week’s TechEd Europe 2012. If you start at, you can also drill down to presentations from prior years or from other regional TechEds (Australia, New Zealand, etc.)

The top presentations from my “View Queue”:


The Norwegian Developer Conference site has the most interesting presentations, in my opinion. You can find the videos from the June 2012 conference at that link. The 2011 and 2010 pages have a lot of presentations that are still relevant also.

Travelling on from Norway to Sweden... I don’t know why, but the Scandinavians seem to have this conference thing figured out. ØREDEV happens each November, and you can find videos here and here.

aspConf - The Virtual ASP.NET Conference

Formerly known as “mvcConf”, this one’s a little different. It’s a conference that takes place completely on the web.

Check out the recordings from the conferences held:

It’s two years old and talks about ASP.NET MVC2, but most of it is still applicable, and Jimmy Bogard’s Put Your Controllers On a Diet presentation is the most useful technical talk I have ever seen.


Videos from the 2011 edition of this Tennessee conference are available. Presentations from last month’s 2012 conference should be available soon here.

I’m looking forward to watching Matt Honeycutt’s Build Your Own Application Framework with ASP.NET MVC 3.

User was founded in January of 2011 by Shawn Weisfeld, with the mission of providing User Group content online for free. You can search by date, group, speaker and category tags.
