Last issue, we offered readers the chance to grab a seat at IT & DevConnections powered by Microsoft, Germany 2011 on June 9-10 for just €100 (ex VAT). This month, we have 20 more 100 euro passes to give away for the Windows event of the year at the Kongresszentrum Karlsruhe, Stadthalle

At the end of April, some readers missed out as we announced our offer so close to the holidays. This month, with two weeks to go, 20 more readers can snap up a pass that would normally cost €449. To qualify, register  here. In the box that asks for a Promotion Code, type in: HMC774. The code will work for the first 20 registrants that use it. Please note, though, that this offer does not extend to pre-conference workshops on June 8.

In a year in which there is no TechEd Europe, the conference will feature over 100 in-depth sessions on pretty much the whole Microsoft technology stack – Windows, SharePoint, SQL Server, Exchange, Silverlight, ASP.NET, virtualisation and Azure.

Microsoft speakers include ASP.NET development guru Scott Guthrie, developer tools group director Dave Mendlen and Steve Fox, senior evangelism manager at Redmond's developer and platform group. Windows IT Pro luminaries from the U.S. include SharePoint wizards Dan Holme and Richard Taylor as well as SQL Server speaker-circuit stars Kimberly Tripp and Paul Randall, to name but a few. The conference will also feature local tech talent delivering their sessions in German.

The event will take the form of co-located conferences – SharePoint Connections, Microsoft ASP.NET/Silverlight Connections, Visual Studio Connections, and SQL Server Connections. There will also be sessions for Exchange specialists.
