What is DEVintersection & SQLintersection & SHAREPOINTintersection?
DEVintersection is an educational onsite conference for anyone who is attached to a .NET development programming project who is looking to use Visual Studio to develop apps for desktop, web and mobile platforms. We bring together some of the best speakers (and our personal friends) for a conference that is relaxed and educational, plus forward looking as you and your company start to figure out what to do with Windows 8 and Visual Studio for the next few years. Our attendees tend to be .NET software developers plus other members of their teams. SQLintersection is co-located with DEVintersection. The content will focus on best practices for SQL Server versions 2012, 2008R2 and 2008 and will apply to almost anyone that works with SQL Server. We'll have a performance tuning track, a high availability and disaster recovery track, and a troubleshooting track. SHAREPOINTintersection is a conference for SharePoint IT admins, SharePoint developers and SharePoint power users who install, develop, deploy or significantly use SharePoint at any size company. We'll cover key SharePoint topics like governance, enterprise search, SharePoint 2013's app model, business analytics, no-code solutions and much more. SharePoint is useful in so many places and SHAREPOINTintersection will show you how to make the best use of it. Attendees of DEVintersection, SQLIntersectcion and SHAREPOINTintersection are free to cross over to attend sessions at the co-located events.
