Many of my colleagues and I will be presenting at the very popular JAOO Conference in a couple of weeks time. Although I can only be there for one day for my own session, I'm really looking forward to it. There's a buzz at JAOO that is rarely matched in other developer conferences.

"JAOO Aarhus is Europe’s premier developer conference on software technology, methods and best practices. The conference is designed by developers for developers and as a result JAOO provides a unique combination of industry leading expert presentations, learning, and networking opportunities."

Here's a list of 'Microsofties' speaking:

  1. Anders Hejlsberg, Opening Keynote: Where Are Programming Languages Going?; C# 3.0 and LINQ
  2. Arvindra Sehmi, Distributed Embedded Systems -The 5 Billion Devices Developer Opportunity
  3. Beat Schwegler, Enterprise 2.0 & Enterprise Search
  4. Erik Meijer, Why Functional Programming (Still) Matters; LINQ + New Microsoft Things; JavaScript as an Assembly Language
