When I became the Developer Chair of IT/Dev Connections, I met one of the legends in this software industry, Dino Esposito. His comment to me was - 'I have spoken at numerous conferences all over the world. This is the first conference I've found where I actually want to attend 4 sessions or more every day.'

The opportunity to explore new and different technologies and techniques and discuss them with so many super-smart people is my idea of a great time. I have been to IT/Dev Connections several times before, both as a speaker and an attendee, and have loved it every time. I am really looking forward to the event again this year. Please don't hesitate to stop me in the hall and say "hello." I'd love to talk tech with you.

I'm very excited to be an active part of such a great community. I love to teach other developer and IT professionals. I also enjoy meeting and sharing ideas with like-minded individuals in the developer community. In addition, I love getting the opportunity to learn from some of the biggest names in the software industry.
Software and Data Science Consultant
I love the depth of both IT Pro and Developer sessions. Since more and more of us are doing both these days, I am very excited at events where I can learn from both sides.

[IT/Dev Connections is...] the one conference I would gladly pay for myself to attend because it provides you information about how technology is used out in the real-world. Many other conferences provide information about technologies, how they were designed and how they are supposed to work. And there's the catch. Technology isn't always used in the way that it's supposed to, and often doesn't behave the way you expect either. Because this conference is so focused on providing real-world information, every single session will provide you with at least a few tidbits you didn't know because they are badly or not documented at all. THAT is the real value. People talking about the practical use of technology rather than the theory of it.
