.NET Conf, the free three-day virtual developer event, kicks off September 12. Find out how you can watch, learn and even win some really cool prizes.
.NET Conf, a FREE, three day virtual developer event co-organized by the .NET community and Microsoft, kicks off on Wednesday, September 12. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned engineer, there is content for anyone interested in building for web, mobile, desktop, games, services, libraries and more. They’ll have presentations on .NET Core and ASP.NET Core, C#, F#, Azure, Visual Studio and Xamarin, to name a few.
Below are a few things to know to make the most out of your .NET Conf experience.
Looking for a good place to watch? We will be streaming .NET Conf live from this post. So bookmark this page and come back September 12 – 14 to watch.
Watch with Us in Sofia
If you are in Sofia, Bulgaria on Wednesday, September 12, plan to join us for a .NET Conf Watch Party from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. at the new Progress office. We'll have swag, prizes and food. And, best of all, you can watch the keynote, welcome session, and first two sessions with your friends. More information and registration link can be found here.
If you can't make it to Sofia but want to watch with friends, you can find a list of local watch parties here.
What to Watch/Learn
Over the course of the three days you have a wide selection of live sessions streaming here that feature speakers from the community and .NET product teams. It's a chance to learn, ask questions live, and get inspired for your next software project. You can see the agenda here.
And while I know I am probably biased, if you could only watch one session throughout the three days, I highly recommend tuning in on Day 2 at 23:00 (PDT) | 06:00 (UTC) to hear Progress’s very own Atanas Popatanasov speak about Enhancing WPF/WinForms Applications with UWP Features.
Virtual Attendee Party
What’s a conference without an attendee party?! For the first time in .NET Conf history, there will be a virtual attendee party after the last session ends on Day 1 (September 12, 17:00 PDT (UTC -7). and Progress is a sponsor!
The .NET Conf attendee party is a live party on Twitter hashtag #dotNETConf where you can answer questions to win prizes from our partners, interact with the community, and see all the new and upcoming announcements! There will also be a live video feed on twitch.tv/VisualStudio where you can see demos and hang out with .NET Conf team members and speakers. Prizes include an Xbox One X, PLUS tons of other cool giveaways throughout the party.
You don’t want to miss it!
