The Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC), the premier definitive developer event focused on the future of the Microsoft platform, returns in 2007 after a short 2 year break ...
... and its back in Los Angeles again !
I had such a great time back in PDC2005 in Los Angeles, presenting, networking and shooting the Visual Studio 2005 launch video, etc. That event in 2005 must rank tops in my book amongst many of the Microsoft technology events I have attended and/or presented over the years.
Microsoft tends to align PDC events with key product development milestones so we tend to hold the events every couple of years, sometimes even more. There isn’t a set schedule. Therefore, there shouldnt be that "Ah - I think I will skip this and go next year" mentality or something. The last 2 PDCs were some of the biggest Microsoft public events - with the announcements of Longhorn, WinFX, Office Server systems, Vista, etc
It is definitely NOT an event you want to miss. I encourage some of my friends, developers and IT-Pros from Asia-Pacific to save up and attend. The investment made will be well-worth it.
Registration will open in Q4. Do check it out and, more importantly, stay tuned to the registration site here for more details.
Hopefully, this early announcement will help in making sure this event gets into your (or your company's) budget planning for next year.
