Developer content focus

The TechDays developer focus we have is make sure developers get a head-start on the platform and tools such as the next generation of Visual Studio Tools and Languages, ALM, Cloud, Web and Mobile as well as learning how to build applications that leverage cloud services and target multiple devices.
At the same time we also ensure there are enough sessions that go deep on current technology learning’s and real world architectures.

Top speakers

This year we are welcome some of the regulars as well as some new faces. Speakers like Jeff Prosise, Bart De Smet, Brian Keller, Wade Wegner, Tarek Madkour, Matt Milner and more. Alex Turner is also back after a few years away, as is Nikhil Kothari the creator of Script#. From over the English channel we are welcoming Steve Sanderson and Richard Finn for the first time, as is Rob Miles joining us for the second year.

Local speaker favorites and again a few new faces for TechDays: Gill Cleeren, Maarten Balliauw, Kevin Dockx and Sam Vanhoutte, and Peter Himschoot and Jurgen Postelmans for the post-conference deep dive.

As for the keynote: we still have an announcement to be made there once we are ready to confirm.
