Join us this November for Connect(); 2016

Today, I am excited to announce that our popular developer event Connect(); is back for a third year on November 16th and 17th and will be live-streamed globally from New York City. I encourage you to save the date for what promises to be our best Connect(); yet.

At Connect(); 2016, Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie and Principal Program Manager Scott Hanselman, alongside leading industry innovators, will share the latest innovations from Visual Studio, .NET, Xamarin, Azure, SQL, Windows, Office and more.  Over the two days, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in live, interactive Q&A sessions with our engineering teams, customers and partners and learn how it’s now easier than ever before to build and manage breakthrough intelligent apps that work across Android, iOS, Linux and Windows.

Al Hilwa, IDC recently said, “Microsoft’s Connect(); developer event has grown into a significant milestone for developers building modern apps for cloud, mobile and DevOps deployment scenarios, in the process helping drive positive business impact at their companies.”

Developers inspired us to create the Connect(); event. You are at the center of incredible business transformation and the disruption of entire industries through the development of powerful apps that change the world.  For the past two years, we’ve unveiled new innovative technologies and solutions at Connect(); that represent our relentless drive to meet the needs of any developer, building any application on any platform.  Connect(); 2016 is the next step on our cloud-first, mobile-first world journey.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you on November 16th and 17th.
