Reasons to Attend

1. California Code with Us.  Join us on our first trip EVER to sunny SoCal to get up to speed on what's now, new and next on the .NET horizon.

2. A Trusted Source since 1993.  We take pride in the fact that the Developer Community has come to us for the best in developer-focused education and training for more than 20 years.

3. Register Today to Code for a Better Tomorrow. Get 4 days of developer-focused education for a great price! Plus, the earlier you register, the more you save.

4. Disneyland and Developer Education. All work and no play makes for a pretty boring conference. Our host hotel, the Hyatt Regency Orange County, is located just blocks from the Disneyland Resort, and a short drive to Angel Stadium or "The OC" beaches. Code by day and enjoy all that Anaheim has to offer at night.
5. Content with Substance. What you need to know now: the information-packed 4-day agenda offers multiple sessions in tracks such as Visual Studio /.NET Framework, ASP.NET, Database & Analytics and JavaScript/HTML5 Client.

6. Harness the Santa Ana Winds of Change. Moving to the Cloud? Embracing enterprise mobility? Opening the floodgates of open source development? Are you ready? Andrew Brust, Rockford Lhotka, and Brian Randell, our conference co-chairs, are here to help you not only understand and work with the change, but master it!

7. Our Experts are Down-to-earth Visionaries. Sit down for some one-on-one time with the likes of Adam Tuliper, Rockford Lhotka, Billy Hollis, Ted Neward, and Deborah Kurata. Speakers at Visual Studio Live! are always able and willing to talk to you outside of sessions – it's a great opportunity to get insightful, on-point answers to some of your burning questions!

8. Pundits with Views from Every Angle. We want you to learn about the most recent software and industry updates- the good, the bad, and the ugly. That's why you'll get to hear from both unbiased industry experts and Microsoft insiders at your sessions.

9. Let's Do Lunch. Developers, engineers, software architects and designers will all be at the conference from all around the world -- take advantage of the meals and networking events to get to know your colleagues.

10. Hit the Campaign (for Code) Trail.  Getting out from behind your desk, stepping away from the daily grind, and taking 4 days to soak in new knowledge is still the best way to move forward on new projects and breathe life into old ones at the office.
