Who Should Attend and Why

We’ve been around since 1993. What’s our secret? YOU! Since our first conference (VBITS/VSLive!/Visual Studio Live!) in 1993, tens of thousands of developers, software architects, programmers, engineers, designers and more have trusted us year-in-and-year-out for unbiased and cutting-edge education on the Microsoft Platform.

  • Last year, I got so much out of the SOLID principle sessions – it gave me great perspective on the subject. This year, I loved the HoloLens introduction. I work for an aerospace company, and I can see that the technology will be utilized for assembly, 3D design, 3D inspection and many other applications in the near future!” — Mani Nazari, IT Factory Automation Systems

  • Each time I’ve attended VSLive! (3 and counting!), I return to the office to present on various topics like software debt, SOLID principles and Entity Framework. I think this has helped our team to better embrace these concepts and grow our knowledge in key Microsoft technologies.” — Phillip Houston, CCLI

  • Why do I keep coming back to VSLive!? To keep sharp, and stay current. We’re a proactive, agile, Microsoft stack shop using Azure, continuous integration, working in a "culture of learning & teaching", but being refreshed and inspired by evangelists and leaders is so important.” — David Lehman, Christian Copyright Licensing International

  • I originally came to Visual Studio Live! to improve my technical skills, but I came back in order to network and meet other developers. The biggest change I’ve made at work, by far, is the quality of unit tests, which has resulted in a significant drop in reported bugs.” — Justin C Kritzer, Lehigh County Government Center
