3 Reasons to Attend Prairie Dev Con–West

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 7:32 AM

We’re well under 2 months to Prairie Dev Con – West in Calgary, and it appears some of you need an extra push to register.

So why attend? Well, there’s the three days and over 80 sessions spanning software development, IT Pro, and Agile topics. There’s the pre-conference workshops available on WP7, TFS, and Agile as well as the Microsoft IT Pro Camp and Azurefest events. And there’s the value – comparable conferences in other cities will run you almost double the cost in registration, hotel, and airfare; Prairie Dev Con is all about bringing the knowledge to you, not you having to search it out.

Did we mention that Richard Campbell and Cark Franklin will be on hand doing a live .NET Rocks show from the conference?

But if all that isn’t enough to convince you, here are a few more reasons:

1 – Dylan Smith will Teach You How to Dance

Coming off a whirlwind tour of India and other locales, Dylan will be offering evening sessions on cultural dancing for those interested.



I don’t know if I need to say anything more here.


3 – Jonathan Rozenblit Needs to Maximize Microsoft’s Banner Investment

Seriously, you can’t just put a guy’s face on a stand up banner and not use it anywhere!


Although he has been trying to get it some good facetime…



So what are you doing March 13 – 15?

The correct answer should be attending Prairie Dev Con – West in Calgary! Awesome sessions, fantastic speakers, and a lot of fun along the way.
