Microsoft is a developer company, so there’s nothing we love more than connecting with developers to share our latest tools, technologies and plans for the future. I therefore invite you to set your calendar November 18-19 for Connect (); // 2015 – when Microsoft hosts its premier fall developer event, streamed live from New York City to developers around the world.
Keynotes and technical sessions will feature news, demos and insights that illustrate how developers are working with Microsoft to capitalize on their evolving roles with powerful and flexible tools that embrace today’s open environments to target Android, iOS, Linux, Windows and more.
This year’s event will demonstrate the tremendous progress we’ve made on the journey toward a new Microsoft for developers that began last year with the announcements of a cross-platform .NET for Linux and OSX available as open source and the new Visual Studio Community edition for targeting nearly every major device and OS, available for free.
Connect(); will feature a marquee lineup of speakers joining Scott Guthrie to talk code, including; Brian Harry, Scott Hanselman, Amanda Silver, Anders Hejlsberg and Beth Massi alongside many of the customers, partners and industry luminaries who are leading the shift toward mobile first, cloud first computing scenarios.
We encourage you to save the date and tune in November 18 th and 19 th . Additional details on the event and broadcast event can be found at http://www.visualstudio.com/connect2015 .
