Reasons to Attend

10. Our Platform? Content, and Lots of it. We offer 5 full days of educational sessions on hot topics like Modern App Development, WCF, Web API, ASP.NET, AngularJS, ALM, Visual Studio 2015, SQL Server, and more!

9. Get the Inside Scoop. Get up to speed on what's happening on the developer landscape now, and learn what's coming next to get out ahead of the competition.

8. Shake Some Hands. From the networking breakfasts, to evening activities, to just sitting next to someone new at lunch, you'll have the unique chance to learn from and share with your peers, all week long!

7. We'll Take All Your Questions Now. What separates Visual Studio Live! (VSLive!TM) from other conferences (and internet-based training) is the unparalleled access to the speakers. Get your questions answered in-between sessions, during meals and at fun evening events.

6. Examine Core Issues with Full-Day Workshops. Get two days (pre and post conference) of education on the hottest topics on the campaign trail.

5. Ready. Set. Debate! Our speakers include both unbiased industry experts and Microsoft insiders, so you'll hear every side of the story on the most recent software and industry updates.

4. We Stand By Our Name. In August of 2015, Microsoft released Visual Studio 2015. 2015 is an exciting release with new editions with tons of new features, not to mention Microsoft's exciting venture into more open source and cross-platform development. We'll give you the information you need to understand and leverage the power of .NET, Visual Studio, ALM, and VSO today and into the future.

3. It's Still Vegas, Baby! Code by day and enjoy all the Strip has to offer by night at our headquarters, Bally's Hotel & Casino.

2. The Choice is Clear. Or is it? With over 90 sessions and workshops in a variety of tracks, you're free to choose what sessions you attend and when. You aren't bound to any one session or track! Sometimes it's hard to choose, though, so we provide all conference proceedings and any shared code for all the sessions free to attendees!
