patterns & practices Symposium 2013

I’m happy to announce the next p&p Symposium here in Redmond. Details below.




The patterns & practices Symposium is the event for software developers and architects to have engaging and meaningful discussions with the people creating technologies and guidance at Microsoft.

This year’s Symposium topics span the spectrum of technology, architecture, and teamwork.  You will learn about practices, patterns, and technologies that will save you time and reduce risk when creating Cloud, Web, and Windows-based solutions. The Symposium is also an opportunity to influence p&p and other product teams face-to-face to address the scenarios most important to you.
