Why to go to the CodeGear Developer Conference Brazil (aka BorCon)

This year we will have the 6th edition of our Developer Conference in Brazil.  I’m especially excited about the conference this year, and here are some reasons why.

  • First year as CodeGear

  • First year we released 5 great products in 9 months

  • First year we will have Anders and Steve Shaughnessy as speakers at BorCon

  • First year we will have Jim Douglas, our CEO, participating

  • First year we will 4 simultaneous tracks just for Developers: 2 tracks for Delphi, 1 for Java and 1 for InterBase, PHP, and Ruby

I know these are not enough reasons to motivate you to go in BorCon.  Watch this video - BorCon 2006 is one important reason to go
