This was .NET Day Switzerland 2018

That’s it, .NET Day Switzerland took place on May 29th and is now history. In this blog post I want to summarize the experience we had and thank everybody who made it possible!

If you are curious about the history of .NET Day Switzerland, you can read the introductory blog post that I wrote in February this year: http://manuelmeyer.net/2018/02/announcing-net-day-switzerland-2018/

We managed to sell the exact amount of tickets that we had in our mind when we planned the event and we welcomed 200 attendees at the Bananenreiferei in Zurich. This is exactly double the number of participants that we had at the first .NET Day Switzerland in the year 2017. Goal achieved, we are happy. 🙂
