PDC 2008 – The journey begins.

So here we are, October of 2008, and PDC is being held again after four long years.  I was at the last one and must say I have been looking for to this one ever since.

Rumor has it Microsoft has all sorts of goodies planned for us — 
include an eraly beta of the upcomming Windows 7.

Right now I am on a plane heading out to vegas (small side trip) and outside of being dissapointed by US Airw "let's charge for everything including water" policy the trip is starting off well.

Stay tunes for updates and pictures as I am sure there will be lots to talk about come sunday.

PDC Kickoff

After a rather fun side trip to Las Vegas (more about this later). I arrived in LA on Saturday so I could attend the pre-confrence session on SilverLight before diving into the frenze that is PDC. The seasion was put on by wintellect and ran all day and I must say I was impressed with all of it. From the content to the speaker it was well put together and was very informative. I had a basic understanding of silverlight going in and now I feel like I am ready to start writting full apps in it. SilverLight is going to be a game changer for the Microsoft web developer!
