Prairie Dev Con 2011 – Session List Sneak Peak

Thursday, January 20, 2011 9:08 AM

I’m trying to find time to update the Prairie Developer Conference 2011 website, and the sessions and speaker information will be up by this weekend including the registration page.

For those that are wondering what the session and speaker list looks like, I wanted to give a sneak peak. We have a fantastic set of sessions by world class technologists! We’re covering .NET, Java, Ruby, SQL Server, Agile, User Experience, Mobile, Security, Azure, Office, SharePoint, and others. In fact, this year I’ve added an extra room so we’ll have 5 rooms going and a total of 55 sessions!  have 6 rooms and 61 sessions! (Note: I just added three more speakers, check out the conference blog post detailing the additions here).

Also, Steve Rogalsky will be doing a full day Agile post-conference workshop that shouldn’t be missed!

So for now, here’s the session/speaker list. Watch www.prairiedevcon.com this weekend for session abstracts and detailed speaker info!
