Hi <Manager Name>,

I would like to attend Visual Studio Live! Chicago (April 29 - May 3, 2024), a developer training conference produced by the publishers of Visual Studio Magazine and sponsored and supported by Microsoft.

At Visual Studio Live! Chicago, I will:

  • Improve my technical skills and become a more valuable asset to the company.
  • Learn from both industry experts and Microsoft product team members in a dev-focused environment.
  • Become more efficient and productive by shaving time and endless cycles off my development projects. Saving even 10 minutes an hour, would give me over 345 hours per year to spend on other critical projects.
  • Network with other professionals in different industries to share best practices and gain new perspectives on the technology I work with daily.
  • Build new relationships, creating new avenues for me to find solutions for our biggest business and technology challenges.

The conference itself provides in-depth real-world training on:

  • .NET 7, .NET 8, and .NET Core Standard
  • Azure / Cloud Computing
  • Angular
  • DevOps
  • Visual Studio 2022
  • Web and JavaScript Development
