Minnesota Developers Conference 2012The 7th annual Minnesota Developers Conference is back this fall on September 13 at the DoubleTree Bloomington Hotel.

Last year’s sold out event attracted over 500 developers from across the Midwest and is considered by organizer Farhan Muhammad to be the largest developers conference in the region.

This time around, five core tracks and twenty sessions will revolve around mobile and web software development, with an emphasis on .NET, Windows 8, Android, HTML5, and software architecture.

“I am super excited about this year’s event because the entire conference speaking agenda is created from developer submissions and voting,” Muhammad said.  “This level of developer community involvement is the ingredient that makes any conference great.”

The event will be keynoted by Jeff Brand, a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft focused on the Windows 8 platform.

Jon Dahl, CEO of  Zencoder, which sold last week for $30 million, will be presenting a talk titled “Programmer to founder: startup lessons for developers,” prior to Phil Crissman’s “Fear and Loathing in Software development.”

Registration is open.
