This is the second year in a row, I attended the DevReach conference. Last year I got an invite from Telerik, because I used some Telerik Silverlight components – this made me eligible for a discount. This year I simply joined the early bird programme. The early bird price was below 160 EUR for two days with 6 tracks including an amazing after party, where you could meet all the speakers and the other attendees that also chose to buy a VIP pass. The nearby five-star hotel was 80 EUR a night and the flight to Sofia is also quite affordable if you live in Europe. This year they also added a pre-conference day with four half-day workshop.
Does these prices mean it is a discount conference?
Granted: This is all very affordable, but I assure you there is nothing discount about this. It is a great conference with international speakers of a very high class. At the time of this writing the speaker list is still available at www.devreach.com.
Topics covered include agile, testing, architecture, mobile developement, Windows 8 development, HTML5, cloud, web – also how to make cross-platform apps, with as much shared code as possible.
I can only recommend that you follow @devreach on twitter or on Facebook, so you get notified when the registration for next years conference opens. And when it does, tell your friends! You will not regret it.
