What People Are Saying About Live! 360

I like that the event had so many combined conferences; so I could explore other tracks, if I wanted. Speakers were awesome. The resort staff was on top of things. I am going home with several takeaways and am very pleased. -- Adam Akers, Chemical Abstracts
The broad selection of conference topics was excellent. I very much appreciated that I could attend sessions that were applicable to my work environment; but also indulge personal interest. The information, collaboration, and opportunity to meet all those great minds was incredible. I will definitely be coming back for future conferences as often as possible. -- Jared Haen, Digi-Key Corporation
Co-locating the conferences into one, and the variety of sessions, was the best. I came here for VSLive!, but attended lots of Modern Apps Live! and SQL Server Live! sessions. -- Abhishek Pandey, Neuberger Berman
