Connect(); 2016

Microsoft’s developer event Connect(); is back for a third year on November 16th and 17th and will be live streamed globally from New York City. We encourage you to save the date for what promises to be our best Connect(); yet.

At Connect(); 2016, Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie and Principal Program Manager Scott Hanselman, alongside leading industry innovators, will share the latest innovations from Visual Studio, .NET, Xamarin, Azure, SQL, Windows, Office and more. Over the two days, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in live, interactive Q&A sessions with our engineering teams, customers and partners and learn how it’s now easier than ever before to build and manage breakthrough intelligent apps that work across Android, iOS, Linux and Windows.
