.NET meets Unbounded Potential

A great language deserves a great conference to showcase its versatility and inspire innovation

.Net Unboxed Logo
Opening up .NET to Dallas this fall

.NET Unboxed is a gathering of developers who are excited about the incredible things happening in the world of .NET. Veterans of the .NET OSS community will join developers who are just starting out and everyone in between to discuss, discover, and explore all of the possibilities that open source .NET has to offer. Whether you want to contribute to the framework itself or to one of the many awesome open source .NET projects, start your own open source project, or use these amazing tools to create exciting new applications on practically any platform, this is a great time to be a .NET developer. Come join us, not just to learn about what is happening, but to be a part of it!

A .NET developer and open source enthusiast from Dallas, David Nelson came back from attending .NET Fringe determined to spread the open source excitement to more developers. He called some fellow .NET developers as well as friends with backgrounds in marketing and event planning, and over dinner at Blue Goose Cantina the .NET Unboxed conference was born.
