I have a great pleasure to invite you to two community driven conferences that are organized in Poland:

4Developers, 7th March, Kraków

4Developers 4Developers is a first “hybrid” conference organized in Kraków, combining different programming languages (C#, Java, PHP, Ruby), as well as project management and database topics. It is planned for 700 attendees who can participate in 4 parallel tracks.

  • Java – the track will be opened by Neal Ford and Adam Bien
  • .NET & C# – everything one must know about Microsoft technologies presented by Ted Neward and others
  • Dedicated Languages – track concerns open languages: PHP & Ruby and programming data bases
  • IT Project Management – effective managing of IT projects discussed by the most experienced PMs in the industry, in example those who are responsible for the success of “The Witcher” game.

Kraków .NET Developers Group (KGD) is  actively helping with organization of the .NET track. We plan to host the .NET Underground with lightning talks and some fun contests.

C2C 2009, 14th March, Warsaw

C2C 2009 Last year’s edition of C2C was first conference organized by Polish .NET and SQL community. Over 200 attendees participated in 10 sessions from top speakers including our special guests Dino Esposito and Martin Kulov

This year’s C2C is even bigger and better. In addition to .NET and SQL it now includes IT Pro track, and each track will host 5 sessions. Among others we will hear Allan Mitchell – SQL Server MVP (Most Valuable Professional) – the world class expert, the author of many books on the subject.

Key information

  • Goal: experience exchange; hotheads and professionals communities’ integration;
  • Topics: .Net, SQL Server and IT Pro – sessions chosen by the participants by “call for papers” method;
  • Number of participants: 350 – 400;
  • Date: 14th of March 2009;
  • Address: Warsaw, Poland
  • Participation: free.
  • Website:

C2C conference is a great occasion for discussion, knowledge gaining and specialists from all over Poland meeting.

Call for papers

Both conferences still have open slots for speakers. So if you’d like to visit Poland just ping me directly and I can get you in touch with the organizers.

But that’s not all! How about spending a whole week in Poland? Because dates of these conference are only week apart you can be a presenter on both. In the meantime we will organize you a road-show through Poland. You can visit many beautiful Polish cities and meet with developers from .NET User Groups.

Last year Chris Koenig was brave enough to take on this quest and it seems he enjoyed it. In October we had a pleasure to invite Tim Huckaby and Carl Franklin to Kraków and they had their share of fun too.

Hope to see you there!
