Microsoft is bringing the Connections conference for developers to Germany too, with cool topics about ASP.NET, Silverlight, Visual Studio and SQL Server + nine technically in-depth Pre Conference Workshops.
It’s on the 9-10 June in Karlsruhe, see more here: www.devconnections.com
Unfortunately it’s not free but it’s much cheaper than TechEd and it focuses strictly on software development.
PS: Keynote with Scott Guthrie, Dave Mendlen (Visual Studio) and Steve Fox (Sharepoint). Plus sessions with Dino Esposito (he has written lots of web app dev books), Silverlight’s John Papa and the ASP.NET & MVC god himself, Stephen Walther.
