The WROC# conference is a unique occasion for industry specialists, .NET enthusiasts, and anyone thirsty for knowledge to get up close and personal with experts. Our goal remains unchanged – we want to bring bright minds together and give inspiring talks on the issues .NET web developers are the ones who care most. Come and listen to the world-class speakers delivering priceless speeches and sharing valuable remarks. Attending WROC# is a guaranteed knowledge upgrade and a fantastic opportunity to share experience with other members of the IT community
This year we’re organizing our 5th edition of the event. During each of the previous four years, the WROC# conference attracted over 500 participants to Wroclaw. Each conference consists of six 60-minute talks on various aspects of programming plus a discussion panel. We have had the pleasure of listening to such outstanding speakers as: Julie Lerman, Ian Cooper, Dan North, Kim van Wilgen, Sander Hoogendoorn, Tess Fernandez, Steve Sanderson, Mark Rendle, and many more. The topics on the agenda at WROC# are always diverse – .NET, Azure, security, microservices and design patterns, to name but a few. The conference tradition dictates that after the fruitful presentations we invite our guests to join a party full of delicious food, specially brewed WROC# beer, and to have fun.
Don’t miss out on this year’s event – come and spend a day full of knowledge! As Shawn Wildermuth put it nicely: “Poland and Wrocsharp were awesome!” That should be enough to meet anyone’s needs and to make them participate in the event! Now, just get on the ball and be ready when the registration time comes. But you’d better be alert and quick – the tickets for our last edition disappeared within… four minutes! We can’t wait to see you there, and please make sure you follow our event updates on Twitter and Facebook.
The Stadium is located in the north-western part of Wrocław at al. Śląska (Pilczyce). The distance from the centre is less than 9 km.
See who makes WROC# come true.
