"Learning the latest and greatest stuff from industry experts will allow me to come up with new directions to find solutions for our business and technology challenges."
— Ritesh Salot, Netsmart Technologies
"This is my first VSLive! event. I would love to return again next year because I feel like I've learned a lot and have really benefited from the opportunity to network with professionals interested in the same things I am."
— Marcel Mensah
"I have loved learning about all of the latest offerings in the Visual Studio ecosystem from experts in the field. All of the sessions provided candid information about what is new and what is coming, but it never felt like a sales pitch. It has also been great to network with fellow developers to hear about what they are working on in their jobs."
— Katie Gray, The University of Texas at Austin
"This conference has done a great job of getting attendees to mingle and network. I've enjoyed the talks but the social aspects of this conference has been great. I've met a lot of great people and hope to see them at future conferences."
— Timothy Franzke, Ascend Learning
"I have learned a lot about Azure, VSTS, DevOps and ML from this event. I am planning to implement DevOps using Visual Studio Team Services for my organization. This will be biggest change for our IT software deployment procedures. I am inspired by this event and planning to build a first Bot with help of LUIS to help our productions and quality operations."
