A bit about the DEMO conference:

DEMO was there when the seeds of Web 2.0 were planted in a platform called .NET, exploring some of the first Web services before we even had buzz words to describe them. We have stayed true to our mission: to find great innovation wherever it occurs, identify market trends through the lens of the products coming to market, and expose you to new ideas and opportunities.
