We are excited to announce the return of the .NET Conf Student Zone at this year’s .NET Conf 2023. The Student Zone is beginner-friendly, virtual event where experts will teach you how to build amazing projects – all using C# and .NET! This year, our experts will walk you through building mobile apps, AI applications, APIs, frontend web apps, and gaming projects.

Welcome Beginners and Learners

Each year, the new .NET release is kicked off with an exciting exploration of .NET through .NET Conf. This notoriously engaging conference is a three-day event that is jam packed with deep dive sessions filled with exciting updates and deep dives into advanced content. As such, we created the pre-Conf Student Zone to provide learners and beginners with a approachable place to get started using .NET. The Student Zone includes beginner-level sessions for everyone – from students to professionals! Come build with us, ask questions, and walk away with some new projects to add to your portfolio.
