.NET Conf 2019 is Here!

19 September 2019

.NET Conf is back and better than ever! It starts this coming Monday, Sept 23 @ 9 AM PST. You can see the whole schedule here. At a glance: .NET Core 3.0 launches at .NET Conf and they have an amazing keynote in store for you this year! Partners (including DevExpress!) are also hosting two virtual attendee parties on Day 1 and Day 3 where you can participate in a technical treasure hunt, answer trivia questions, and win prizes. In order to participate you do need a Twitch account, so head over to their site and create one if you haven't already (you know, to watch Mark Miller and CodeRushed). 

Wait! What was that about a Treasure Hunt? I love those! Really? So do we! And this year you gotta follow the clues in order to win some amazing prizes. Here are the details:

As part of .NET Conf 2019, viewers have an opportunity to participate in a Technical Treasure Hunt where they are given clues to 10 different questions. Each person who answers all 10 questions correctly will receive a gift card to the .NET Foundation Store and will be entered into a drawing to win one of 10 prizes.

Contest Hours

The .NET Conf Technical Treasure Hunt will begin on Monday, September 23 immediately following the .NET Conf Keynote and will end at 4 a.m. PT on Wednesday, September 25 at the second CodeParty. You don't need to be present to win.

Where do you find the clues?

Clues are available at https://www.dotnetconf.net/party. Additional clues will also be broadcast throughout .NET Conf so be sure to stay tuned throughout!

What do you do once you feel you have a correct answer?

You will whisper your answer to the bot in the twitch.tv/visualstudio chat room. Again, you gotta create a Twitch account to participate. 

To whisper an answer, simply type /w thedotnetbot into the chat. Enter only your answer to the clue.

As an example, if the answer to the first clue is 87, you would type:

/w thedotnetbot 87

The bot will confirm the correct answer or tell you to try again. You do not have to provide the answers in the same order the clues were delivered. 

Winners will be selected at random and will be notified via the twitch.tv/visualstudio channel. Winners will also be announced live at 4 a.m. PT on Wednesday, September 25 at the second CodeParty.

Speaking of CodeParty(s) -- there will be 2 this year for time zone reasons ;) The first one is Sept. 23 @ 5 PM PST and the second one is Sept. 25 @ 4 AM PST. Jeff Fritz is hosting both parties and there will be interviews with partners (us!), trivia questions with even more prizes, and of course, the treasure hunt clues we already talked about... 

You can keep up with all things .NET Conf 2019 if you follow @dotnet or @visualstudio or @dotnetfdn on Twitter.
