Technology today is at a crossroads. With the ever-increasing growth of smartphone and tablet devices, the HTML 5 push and continual emphasis on cloud computing, things are changing quickly for developers, especially in the Microsoft ecosystem.

Keeping up isn’t easy, so how can you cope? You could search the Internet far and wide but the research effort there is big, and the quality and depth of content may leave you wanting. This is where a live conference really shines. We’ve got the content you need, delivered by great speakers who implement these technologies in addition to teaching them.

My name is Andrew Brust, and as Conference Co-Chair for Visual Studio Live! Las Vegas, I'd like to personally invite you to join us this April in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Advisory Council and I have worked hard to put together a tight line-up of sessions focused on Web and HTML 5; Silverlight and WPF; Mobile Development; and Cloud Computing. We’ve also got coverage on new tools like Visual Studio LightSwitch and WebMatrix; the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010 Programming Practices and more. These sessions burrow deep into the new subjects you need to master and the fundamentals that are always important.

So if you're looking for hardcore, no-nonsense content from real-world professionals, Visual Studio Live! Las Vegas is the conference for you.

And don't forget about the huge savings you'll get when you register before March 23. With three days of in-depth sessions and two full days of workshops, Visual Studio Live! Las Vegas is a must-attend event.

I hope to see you there!
