We're well into the planning phases for MDEC2005 in Melbourne (June 20) and Sydney (June 22). Here's almost the final agenda for the day. What I'd like is a sanity check. Have I missed anything obvious, is there too much of anything? Feedback apprectaied either via contact me or via the comments engine.

9:00 - 10:30 Keynote

  • <p>Andrew Coates has listed the <a href="http://blogs.msdn.com/acoat/archive/2005/05/01/413816.aspx">session list</a>for the MEDC in Sydney, and I must say its a let down.</p><p>I mean enough of the "Introduction" sessions ... we cant we get so
  • Hi James - yep - it's tough to condense the 155 sessions at the US MEDC down to the 8 we can deliver in Melbourne and Sydney. The philosophy we used was that it was important not to exclude folks not yet doing serious mobile development. I must admit we agonised over the level of sessions to deliver, but decided in the end to go for making the content accessible to as many developers as possible. I would love to be able to run more in-depth sessions on mobile development. There will, I think, be some at TechEd (see http://blogs.msdn.com/charles_sterling/archive/2005/03/01/381960.aspx) and perhaps we could do some more at the next CodeCampOz.

    Cheers,

    Andrew
