With summer comes longer days, warm air, fireflies... and a great line up of events for .NET developers. Read where you can find us in the summer months and plan to join us!
Not sure about you guys, but I truly love this time of year – summer in the northern hemisphere. Longer days, sunshine, warm air, fireflies... and an awesome lineup of events for us to go to to meet with all of you!
Here's a shortlist of some of the places .NET developers can find us.
Developer! Developer! Developer!
June 23 | Reading, UK
DDD (also known as Developer! Developer! Developer! or Developer Day 2018) is a free developer conference hosted at the Microsoft UK headquarters in Reading. Progress is a platinum sponsor of the event. Come by the booth to meet with some of our local team to learn what's new in Telerik and Kendo UI, grab some swag, and enter to win a set of Bose QuietComfort headphones.
Developer Week Germany
June 25 – 28 | Nuremburg, Germany
Progress is a silver sponsor of Developer Week Germany. Stop by the booth to meet with the folks who built our tools. Learn more about the latest in Telerik and Kendo UI, get a sneak peek at some of innovations – like Conversational UI and AR/VR controls, and more. We will have swag to give out and a drawing for Bose QuietComfort headphones.
July 15 – 19 | Las Vegas, Nevada
Can you say hot?! While we will not have a booth at Inspire, we will have boots on the ground in balmy Las Vegas. We will share from a developer's perspective what we are hearing at the event and share why you might care. We may have some more surprises on the social media front – so stay tuned. And, if you are planning to be at the event, let us know by commenting below!
The Modern Web Tour
July 24 | Berlin, Germany · July 25 | Zurich, Switzerland · July 26 | Munich, Germany
We are joining forces with Microsoft and ".NET Rocks!"'s very own Richard Campbell to host the Modern Web Tour in Berlin, Zurich and Munich. This free event is designed to entertain and educate you about the path ahead for the modern web developer. With speakers like Richard Campbell, Laurent Bugnion, Jessica Engstrom, Christian Weyer, and Sam Basu, you won't want to miss it. Lunch will be served. Knowledge will be imparted. And surprises will occur. It's all free – register today!
Visual Studio Live!
August 13 – 17 | Redmond, Washington
You really can't beat the weather in Redmond in August. Join Sam Basu and Ed Charbenau on the Microsoft campus for Visual Studio Live! As a silver sponsor of the event, you will find at least one of them at the booth at any given time. They can give you a demo of our newest tools, answer product questions, and maybe give you a sneak peek of what's to come in our next release. And, of course they will have swag and a drawing for cool prizes.
We hope to see you at some of these events. If you don't see your favorite summer conference on the list, let us know! We'd love the opportunity to get your feedback on our products, share with you what's new and what is coming and in general, talk tech!
