.NET Developer Days 2024 Berlin

3 Jun 2024 1 mins Presentations & Speaking

One of my favourite conferences – .NET Developer Days – that happens in Warsaw in fall is now having also a Berlin edition. And I’m a big fan of Berliner Fernsehturm. Looks like a perfect combination (well, perfect combination would be to have the conference in Fernsehturm 😉). Anyway, I’ll have two sessions there and I hope to see you there.
