The first annual St. Louis Day of .NET was held on December 13th, 2008 and we are proud to announce that we had turnout of over 250 local .NET developers, architects, DBA’s, or other technologists. While we had the traditional hiccup and technical glitch associated with any conference, we were very pleased with the overall event and we hope that every attendee walked away feeling satisfied and with more of an understanding of some of the newer .NET technologies being released over the next year.
For those of you in attendance, we would like to announce that speaker content is being posted here as it becomes available.
As with any event this size, we would like to give a special thanks to a large number of organizations and individuals who helped pull this conference together. Without their sponsorships and hard work, we would not be able to bring conferences like this to the St. Louis .NET community.
The organizers would like to thank:
- Washington Universities CAIT Center for providing the great facilities and working with us so closely on coordination.
- BusyEvent.com for helping
with planing and coordination and then volunteering to run all the online and onsite registration. We had no idea the work involved in getting those things to run as smoothly as they did.
- All our corporate sponsors who donated much needed funds and many great raffle prizes which both helped make this event possible and a success.
- All the speakers who donated their time and expertise to share their knowledge and provide the true value of a conference such as ours.
- All the volunteers who helped set up for the event on Friday evening and stuck around late on Saturday to help put things back as we found it. Without your help we would have faced a monumental cleanup task but, thanks to all the extra hands, we were able to finish in under two hours.
We are currently putting plans together for next year’s event and will be announcing more details as they are finalized.
This conference was ultimately envisioned and put together for the community and by the community. We encourage all of you to visit www.stlnet.org
and become involved in our local organization by attending our monthly meetings or even volunteering to share your knowledge by becoming a presenter.
Thanks again to all for the support of our conference and we are looking forward to next year’s event,
-St. Louis Day of .NET Organizers
St. Louis' Day of .NET is a one day technical conference being held on Saturday, December 13th, 2008 and providing over 20 highly technical sessions covering some of the most relavent .NET topics today.
As Microsoft releases new technologies into the marketplace via their national conferences such as Tech-Ed or the Professional Developers Conference (PDC), many local developers and technologists are caught behind the curve by not being able to attend these national events on a regular basis. To help
bridge the gap between the topics and content presented at these events and local developers, Microsoft is working with the local St. Louis .NET developer community to host the St. Louis Day of .NET conference. This conference will give local developers the opportunity to see some of the same sessions provided at the national events as well as experience some of the newest technologies such as Windows 7.
The Day of .NET conference will include sessions covering:
- Microsoft Windows 7
- Windows Azure and Microsoft's "Cloud Computing" Initiative
- Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
- Distributed Caching using Microsoft "Velocity"
- The future of C#
- SQL Server 2008

In addition to the great sessions by some of the areas leading presenters, attendees will have the opportunity to win one of many great prizes provided by Microsoft and many of the other conference sponsors. Don't miss this opportunity to attend and network with your peers and coworkers while staying abreast of the most cutting edge technologies during a time of rapid change.
