Visual Studio Live! Las Vegas & Austin 2022

Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
For over 28 years, Visual Studio Live! (VSLive!) conferences have provided expert solutions for developers, engineers, software architects, and designers. Attendees come to Visual Studio Live! to acquire practical, pragmatic, and immediately applicable knowledge. They come for inspiration and to be shown a vision of a better future through the use of concepts, techniques, patterns and technology that they can apply in their organizations. And they come for a glimpse of the future of technology; the cool stuff that Microsoft and others are building that may not be useful today but will factor into their strategic planning process. The Call for Presentations for Visual Studio Live! Las Vegas and Austin 2022 is now OPEN.
