.NET is evolving, and the DevReach conference offers .NET developers a unique look into the present and future. Join us to hear expert speakers present future-facing content and sharing the .NET love.

.NET. It's the beloved development ecosystem for millions of developers worldwide and the platform of choice for many enterprises to run their mission-critical business applications. Of late, .NET has been enjoying a renaissance - key innovations seem to set up the framework for the next decade of success. Developer excitement is palpable.

We'll be covering the latest in .NET developments at our DevReach conference next week. This post dives into what .NET developers can look forward to from DevReach, which takes place in Sofia, BG from November 13th-14th.

.NET Everywhere

One of the key changes in modern .NET has been flexibility - .NET isn't the monolithic Windows-only framework any more. .NET today powers all kinds of apps for web/desktop/mobile across various platforms, and boasts of a healthy ecosystem with rich tooling everywhere. While AR/VR and AI make .NET future-facing, modern day tooling keep developers productive.

If you are a .NET developer attending DevReach, we have a cornucopia of .NET content delivered by some of the best speakers from around the world. DevReach has a long history of delivering the best .NET sessions, and 2018, the 10 year anniversary, promises to be an event to remember. Here's a quick look at what's in store at DevReach for .NET developers:

Future of .NET

A lot is changing in .NET land - come discover the today & tomorrow from our speakers:



Everyday .NET

While the future may be exciting, we cannot get there unless we understand present day .NET technologies & tooling. The following speakers can help:



.NET Ecosystem

Today's .NET powers apps in the Cloud and can be containerized for easy hosting. The open source ecosystem invites collaboration, but demands understanding of legal & etiquette nuances. Here are some speakers who can help break down the barriers:



  • (Hitch) Hiker’s Guide to the Cosmos (DB) | Jeremy Likness
  • Code First in the Cloud: Serverless .NET with Azure | Jeremy Likness
  • Works on my macine – Docker for .NET Developers | Chris Klug
  • What You Need to Know About Open Source – Trust Me, I’m a Lawyer | Jeff Strauss

AR/VR with .NET

AR/VR looks poised to become the next iteration of human-computer interactions. And .NET together with Unity can power your AR/VR apps. These experts can show us the future:



UX Considerations for AR/VR

While AR/VR may be cool, it demands a complete rethinking about UX - the best apps will fall flat if this next generation of user experience isn't well thought through. These two speakers can help:



.NET on Mobile/Desktop

.NET can effortlessly power iOS and Android apps through Xamarin, with a variety of other platforms already supported. And .NET desktop apps can benefit from modernization and code sharing. Meet two of our speakers who actually build the very tools that most .NET developers use:



  • Get the Most Out of Visual Studio and Xamarin for Mobile Developers | David Ortinau
  • Enhancing WPF/WinForms applications with UWP features | Atanas Popatanasov

.NET Productivity

Developers are most productive when they understand all that their chosen framework offers under the covers. And developer sanity can be gained with testing coverage, knowing security features and using latest tools on top of .NET. Our expert speakers can shine light:



  • The whirlwind tour of Authentication & Authorization with ASP.NET Core | Chris Klug
  • More Better Quality Coverage | Jim Holmes
  • Building and Deploying Full-Featured Reports with Telerik Reporting | Richard Zaslaw
  • Make your Web with Sitefinity Headless | Martin Gebov

See You There

We have lined up some of the best speakers for DevReach and locked in logistics. All said, .NET developers will be presented with an amazing array of content - struggling to choose sessions to go to is a good problem to have. See you in Sofia for DevReach. Cheers!
