About GR DevDay

GR DevDay is a one-day software development conference in Grand Rapids, MI.  It is completely volunteer-run and organized by developers with other developers in mind.  GR DevDay is proud to offer all this at a very low cost to professionals and students.

GR DevDay grew out of the rapid growth and popularity of the GR Day of .NET conference organized by the West Michigan .NET User Group.  These historical ties remain strong, but the scope of topics will reflect the diverse nature of modern software development.  A wide range of technology topics will be explored and developers of all backgrounds are welcome.
