CODE HOME

Visual Studio Live! is hitting the open road on the ultimate code trip to help you navigate the .NET Highway. No code trip would be complete without a stop where it all began, so we're heading to the idyllic Microsoft Headquarters in Redmond, WA, August 10 – 14, 2015!

Join us as we explore hot topics like Visual Studio 2013, JavaScript/HTML5, ASP.NET, Database and Analytics, and more in over 70+ sessions and workshops. Rub elbows with Microsoft insiders, get in on the ground floor of what's next, and learn what you need to know now.

Plus, you'll get to experience code at the source, where you can have lunch with Blue Badges, visit the company store, or just stroll among the evergreens that line the campus.

The Visual Studio Live! conference team is hard at work creating the best agenda and speaker lineup possible – make sure you check back here for programming updates!
