Now in its 15th year, DevWeek 2012, the UK’s biggest independent conference for software developers, DBAs and IT architects, takes place March 26-30.

This years event in the Barbican Conference Centre in Central London features over 100 in-depth technical sessions and workshops on a wide range of key topics for .NET and SQL developers, including many that are cutting edge and breaking news.

With Microsoft being so "careful" about releasing information on WinRT and the future of .NET, WP8, ASP.NET and so on, perhaps it is even more important to find out what many "insiders" think about the currrent turmoil and revolution. 





In this year's opening Technical Keynote, See it. Touch it. Live It, Dave Wheeler will look at the topic that is of most concern to every Microsoft programmer - Windows 8, Metro and WinRT.

After this session, the conference proceeds with eight tracks plus a ninth Microsoft tech.days track in which speakers from Microsoft and its partners present content on Windows Phone, Windows Azure, Visual Studio 2011 and of course more on Windows 8.

DevWeek starts and ends with two sets of full-day workshops (Monday, March 26 and Friday, March 30). This year's pre-conference topics are on ASP.NET MVC applications, HTML5, Metro, Windows Azure, New features in SQL Server 2012, mobile app development, asynchronous code with C#, agile  development and design patterns.

Post-conference workshops include one on unit testing, Scrum, SharePoint 2010, LINQ and the Entity Framework and several on software architecture, for more information visit the DevWeek website.

Speakers and delegates have a wide geographical spread with many travelling to London from the US, Scandinavia and Europe as well as from every part of the UK.

You can book the workshops separately from the main conference or book a universal pass for all five days. Register before March 2nd to save up to £100.
