DevelopMentor Conference Provides Comprehensive Exploration of Microsoft's .NET Initiative

Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from DevelopMentor

    TORRANCE, Calif., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- DevelopMentor, a leading
 provider of software development technology and knowledge resources, announced
 today that it will be hosting an intensive .NET developer conference.
 DevelopMentor's conference series launches in San Francisco at the Fairmont
 Hotel from August 13 to 15, 2001.
     The event is focused on delivering a highly technical yet practical
 developer experience with hands-on labs, fewer targeted conference tracks that
 feature solely top-tier speakers and objective viewpoints driven by the
 technology and not the marketing surrounding them. For more information go to:
 www.develop.com/conferences/dotnet.
     "After being involved in other conferences for years we saw a need for a
 more focused conference that delivered deep technical content throughout the
 program instead of just in brief workshops," said Mike Abercrombie, CEO and
 president of DevelopMentor. "As Java literally transformed the development
 landscape of the 90's, Microsoft's .NET initiative is similarly poised to
 capitalize on the next revolution in software development."
     The developer conference will be a different class of show in many ways
 that will become apparent to attendees. Each session has been designed by a
 team of technical advisors in an effort to broaden the scope of the event and
 will present an objective viewpoint of the latest technologies. Participants
 will attend focused sessions from innovators of the .NET Platform and will
 exercise what they've learned while taking part in the hands-on labs.
     An early registration special offer will be mailed to interested parties
 who have registered their contact information at DevelopMentor's special
 conference web site by entering contact information at
