What Attendees Have To Say:

"Alpha DevCon is the perfect way to keep up to date with the fast-paced development of the Alpha Software range of products, Hear from and interact with the development team about future plans. An excellent learning experience.”

- Glen Schild, VOLMAPP

"As an Alpha Anywhere developer I encourage all developers to attend this year's Alpha DevCon. Like most people, I often learn more when I read the book again, and since the presentations are recorded for attendees, I was able to watch specific demonstrations and techniques days or weeks later to drive home key concepts. The Q&A with Alpha Software engineers was also worth the cost. I got so much out of the last conference that I already took advantage of the early bird discount as I know this year's conference will be even better."  

- Terry Large, MS

""Alpha DevCon 2020 really helped me in my Alpha development. In working with Alpha Anywhere there are always many ways of accomplishing what you want. DevCon helped me hone in on some of the processes I do often and find new and better ways to accomplish them. It is also very valuable to see the Alpha Software roadmap and to learn about the new features that are coming down the pike. It's also a great opportunity to meet the key players at Alpha Software and also make a connection with fellow developers."

- David Weinstein, BestTech
