This event will offer developers, architects, technical and business decision makers in the healthcare industry a chance to learn how Microsoft is making a big bet in the enablement and delivery of Software + Services in Health & Life Sciences. The Health & Life Sciences Developer & Solutions Conference will include a mix of keynotes, panel discussions, industry theme/technology discussions, and interactive breakouts sessions. Our overall objective is to offer a forum that will serve as a culminating exposure to Microsoft platform and technology innovations from a Health & Life Sciences Industry Solutions perspective. Come see how Industry themes & solutions align to technology themes & trends.
