The conferences are free and open to all users of Runtime Revolution, even if they have yet to purchase a licence. These exciting conferences are perfect for new users and those seeking to learn new skills or refresh their knowledge.

The conferences will be hosted by leading Revolution scripters including industry guru Dan Shafer, Klaus Major, Richard Gaskin, Ro Nagey, Jeanne De Voto and many others. Learners will be joined by other users and staff from Runtime Revolution, with guest appearances from company CEO Kevin Miller.
