    If you're a software developer, then you should really consider attending the GOTO event to be held in Chicago, Illinois, USA on April 23-24, 2013. You've already met several of the speakers right here on C9. They span the entire spectrum of our field.

    The great thing about this event is that it's focus spans tools and platforms, frameworks and libraries, philosophies and dogmas. It's all about engineering software from design to implementation, to debugging and optimization, from client to server.

    Microsoft is proud to be a Silver sponsor. Our own Erik Meijer, Artur Laksberg and one more excellent speaker from Redmond will be on site, delivering talks about the art and craft of programming in the modern age. We'll also host a Windows Store App Development workshop, an intensive training day with hands-on app building.

    Charles you should ask Gil Tene about pauseless GC and Managed Runtime Initiative, and ask Brian Goetz about Java 8 Method References, Erik Meijer has envy for that. Big Smile

    @felix9: Well, I wouldn't let the published schedule dictate what will actually take place Smiley In all transparency, I am not working on a keynote, but Front End, yes and also Performance or Cloud (well, both, actually...).

    I'd love to go ... great line up, and workshops. Alas, it is extremely unlikely.

    @Richard.Hein: Why?

    @Charles: Probably the same reasons I've got. It all comes down to having enough in the training budget for travel. Hooray for Pluralsight.

    As kettch said ... I had to pay for BUILD.  It is only a 12 hour drive though ... we'll see.
