This June's IT&DevConnections events in Karlesruhe, Germany and London, UK will introduce well-known names to European developers. I-Programmer has an exclusive discount offer.
Two new conferences "powered by Microsoft" are to kick off in later this year in Germany and the UK. The IT&DevConnections German conference is to be held at the Karlsruhe Convention Center on 8-10 June 2011 and the UK gathering is to be held at the ExCel Arena, London on 14-15 June 2011.
The two conferences feature speakers from both Microsoft and independent companies for a view from the inside and out. Three days of sessions focus on the Microsoft technology stack – SharePoint, Windows, SQL Server, Silverlight, ASP.Net, Exchange and Visual Studio.
No doubt some of the Microsoft speakers will be "indiscreet" enough to drop some hints on which way Microsoft is moving - especially so in the keynotes delivered by MSVP's Scott Guthrie, Dave Mendlen and Steve Fox.
Many of the other speakers should be well known to you from their books and technical blogs: Dan Holme, Markus Egger, Richard Taylor, Christian Wenz, Scot Hillier, Paul Randal, and Juval Lowy.
As with all conferences there will be opportunities to ask questions and generally network with the speakers and like-minded developers.
