I’m officially excited. Microsoft’s Devdays 2011 is nearly upon us. Microsoft Developer Days is the premium annual event exclusively delivered for developers and software development managers.
As always Devdays will be filled with exciting product development, hands on tutorial sessions and a look at the future.
Devdays is all about educating you and I as developers and designers. There is something for everyone, whether you are a “techie” or a “graphie”, whether you are into server, desktop or web development, Devdays is the place to be.
Devdays is designed to help you and I grow our skills, give us tools to apply our brains, share best practices and build connections.
This year Devdays is taking place in Cape Town on 24 May 2011 and up in Johannesburg on 26 May 2011.
Details and Registration: Devdays South Africa 2011.
What's exciting this year is the community sessions giving students and up and coming young developers a chance to get up on to the big stage and strut their stuff.
Here is a brief outline of the agenda. See you there or be square.
