VSLive!, formerly VBITS, is an independent developer conference focused on Microsoft technologies. It is produced by 1105 Media, a producer of integrated business-to-business information and media. VSLive! is intended to give professional developers both essential working knowledge about shipping Microsoft products including Microsoft .NET Framework, Visual Studio and Silverlight, as well as a look at the future of Microsoft technologies such as Visual Studio 2010, .NET Framework 4.0., and Windows Multi-Touch 7.0. The conference goal, during a time of great flux in software development techniques and technologies, is to help attendees boost their careers with a solid week of training and networking experiences.
MDC offers a glimpse into the future of the Microsoft Application Platform direct from Microsoft. Attendees can hear Microsoft's vision for Cloud Computing and building applications that seamlessly bridge the gaps between PC, Web, and phone, see the full range of advances in Windows 7, the next major version of the Windows client operating system, as well as the latest developments in .NET, Silverlight, Surface, Parallel Programming, Live Mesh and more.
At VSLive!, speakers will include Jason Zander, general manager of Visual Studio, as well as key Microsoft product team members, well-known industry writers, editors and developers, and perspectives from third-party experts.
"As an independently produced conference, VSLive! has a long and respected history of outstanding, independent content, which is why it draws the best and the brightest in terms of both speakers and attendees," said Henry Allain, president of 1105 Enterprise Computing Group. "VSLive! 2009 in San Francisco promises to continue that tradition, especially now that we are showcasing MDC as part of the event."
