Access DevCon Vienna 2023: April 27-28

The largest English-speaking Microsoft Access developer's conference in the world will be held online April 27 and 28, 2023.

Karl Donaubauer's annual conference will be presented via Microsoft Teams.  Once again, Karl will be joined by fellow moderators Peter Doering and Philipp Stiefel.  The three of them do a tremendous job keeping presenters to the schedule and working through the technical issues that arise with an online conference of this scale.  

For a taste of what to expect, check out my recap articles from last year's conference:
