Who Should Attend and Why

We've been around since 1993. What's our secret? YOU! Since our first conference (VBITS/VSLive!/Visual Studio Live!) in 1993, tens of thousands of developers, software architects, programmers, engineers, designers and more have trusted us year-in-and-year-out for unbiased and cutting-edge education on the Microsoft Platform.

  • I return to Visual Studio Live! year after year (this is my third!) to see not only what bleeding edge technologies are being introduced, but to also see which technologies are fading; this helps me steer my organization in the right direction for our development needs. So many ideas gleaned from VSLive!, from Web APIs talking to SPA clients, to .NET Core, have helped me greatly!” — John Kasarda, Accuquote

  • Not only is the VSLive! content as good or better than other conferences, but it occurs multiple times a year in multiple locations so I am able to schedule it around my work and personal schedules. Being able to spend a few days focusing on many of the new frameworks and patterns gives me the ability to decide what to research further and to set aside.” — Jude Yakamavage, Lehigh County Government Center

  • I have been looking forward to attending the event for some years and I was finally able to come. I need to help keep my company current and secure. I am advocating for more test-driven dev and using more async as a resulting of attending the conference!” — Yessenia Figueroa, 1-800-Contacts

  • Last year, I got so much out of the SOLID principle sessions – it gave me great perspective on the subject. This year, I loved the HoloLens introduction. I work for an aerospace company, and I can see that the technology will be utilized for assembly, 3D design, 3D inspection and many other applications in the near future!” — Mani Nazari, IT Factory Automation Systems
