Reasons to Attend Live! 360 Orlando: A Message from the VSLive! Conference Co-Chairs

Why should you attend Visual Studio Live!/Live! 360 in Orlando this December 5 – 9, 2016? Trust me, I could go on and on about it, but why don’t I turn the reins over to our venerable conference co-chairs Andrew Brust, Rockford Lhotka and Brian Randell, and have them tell you why? Take it away, gents…

Life Development moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." – Ferris Bueller

This *slightly* altered quote from Ferris couldn’t be more appropriate when talking about the world of software development. It changes almost every day, with amazing new tools and technologies in the cloud, on mobile devices, the Web at large, and on operating systems from Windows to MacOS and Linux. In order to be a “wizard” at your craft, you need to have a good educational source that builds your skills.

We’re Andrew Brust, Rockford Lhotka, and Brian Randell, and as Conference Co-Chairs for Visual Studio Live! Orlando, we’d like to personally invite you to join us this December at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, FL. We think there’s a great way to digest these changes and seize their collective opportunity, and that’s to hear about them directly from the finest expert speakers in the business.

We’ve also got coverage on technologies like Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 / .NET 4.6, the forthcoming Visual Studio “15”, Web API, Single Page Web Apps, Xamarin, and TypeScript. Then there’s our workshop content, covering DevOps and ALM, Cross-Platform Distributed Application Architecture, Service-Oriented Technologies, Angular 2, and Building Web Apps with Azure. These sessions and workshops drill deep into the new subjects you need to master and the fundamentals that are always important.

We’ve put together an amazing lineup of sessions on: ASP.NET Core, Web Client (HTML5, JavaScript, Angular, and more), Cross-Platform Mobile Development, ALM and Team Development, DevOps, Windows Client, Azure / Cloud Computing, Software Practices, and more.

Plus, Visual Studio Live! Orlando is once again a part of Live! 360, which means we’ve worked with the other conference chairs to ensure our content is aligned with the co-located technology tracks at Live! 360. This gives you the unique chance to explore SQL Server, Office and SharePoint, Modern Apps, and IT Pro content in addition to the leading-edge and relevant developer education you’ve come to expect from Visual Studio Live!

Microsoft and its developer technologies are poised to move into the future, and you’ve got to keep up with the changes. At such a pivotal time, Internet-based content isn’t enough. Find a way to get to Visual Studio Live! Orlando and get live content and interaction with independent experts. Your career deserves nothing less.

We hope to see you there!
