Progressive .Net at SkillsMatter

Between September 5th – September 7th, Skillsmatter will be hosting the Progressive .NET Tutorials. The tutorials comprise of twelve 4-hour hands-on Workshops which provide a deep dive into advanced topics for Agile .NET developers. The Tutorials are in their 5th year and aim to provide a liberal dash of Agile and Software Craftsmanship skills as well as advanced .NET Topics. These are in-depth, hands-on tutorials run by real experts who are there to be quizzed, questioned and interrogated for three days of intensive learning!
