We set aside time for learning and research but don't always get to it. Visual Studio Live! helps us distill that down and gets us exposed – it's fabulous, the event's been great."
- Sherry Clifford, Katana Software
We are looking at new products and technologies and Visual Studio Live! is a great way to jump start the learning and get past hurdles you would normally face."
- Tom Smith, Katana Software
We continue to return to Visual Studio Live! because we've learned and improved so much, from code quality to the way we hire, to unit testing and ALM – we got it all here!"
- Randy Keyers, Driesesen HRM
