Sessions for Prairie Dev Con 2013 in Winnipeg Are Posted!

I’m thrilled to announce that the session list for our May 2013 conference are now posted online!

This year we focussed on four areas: Web, Mobile, General Development, and Cloud. We’ve got sessions touching all four of those areas, with diversity in language, technology, and specialization.

Our presenters are once again real-world experts in their field! We have local talent in addition to out-of-towners from Canada and the US!

We’re also offering two post-conference workshops:

Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) with Donald Belcham
ASP.NET MVC with James Chambers

Early Bird registration is open now!
We have two rates for the conference:
