50 lucky Windows IT Pro readers can attend either the IT & DevConnections powered by Microsoft, Germany 2011 conference from June 9-10 or our IT & DevConnections powered by Microsoft UK 2011 conference from June 14-15 for just €100 or £100!

Each two-day conference would  normally cost €1199 or £999 to attend and there are 25 dream-offer places available for each. To grab yours, you'll need to be one of the first 50 readers to phone Maggie Brown at Penton Communications in the UK on +44 (0)161 929 2800. Have your credit card details ready, sign up over the phone and you will be going to the mega event of the year for a steal. Please note, though, that this offer does not extend to pre-conference workshops on June 8 or 13.

In a year in which there is no TechEd Europe, Microsoft has teamed up with the Windows IT Pro network to present the two huge events. IT & DevConnections powered by Microsoft, Germany 2011 will be held at the Kongresszentrum Karlsruhe, Stadthalle. IT & DevConnections powered by Microsoft UK will be held at the ExCeL conference centre. Both will feature over 100 in-depth sessions on virtually 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. Both conferences will also feature local tech talent from the UK and Germany. At the Karlsruhe conference, many of the local speakers will deliver their sessions in German.

The events 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.

So, if you want to take advantage of this one-off offer, get dialling now.
