Microsoft Teases Discounts for August Dev Conference at Redmond HQ

Microsoft is offering a special discount for Visual Studio Professional and Enterprise subscribers wishing to attend a developer conference being held in August at the company's Redmond, Wash., headquarters.

"Visual Studio Live! @ Microsoft HQ celebrates the bright days of the Pacific Northwest -- offering the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in everything Visual Studio, Azure, GitHub, and the marvels of GitHub Copilot," Microsoft's Jim Harrer said in a June 4 post on the company's Developer Blogs site.

The event, scheduled for Aug. 5-9, will feature 35 speakers, including 20 from Microsoft, and 71 sessions spread over 13 tracks, according to Harrer. The conference is part of the Visual Studio Live! series of events that are presented by the parent company of Visual Studio Magazine.

"Take a break from your coding routine and join us at Visual Studio Live! 2024, where you can rapidly accelerate your understanding of the latest in Visual Studio, Azure, and GitHub amidst the camaraderie of fellow developers," Harrer said. "It's the perfect opportunity to catch up on Microsoft's innovations in a collaborative setting, ensuring you stay ahead of the curve without falling behind on your projects."
