I just got an email asking me what makes a great PDC session.  What should we tell speakers to remember in every session?  A couple of ideas came to mind immediately:


          Make it readable – use large enough fonts

          Make sure you know the top 3 things everyone in the audience should walk away remembering

          Remember…it’s a developer audience…and they want code.

          Assume managed code knowledge

          Balance use of  C#  and VB…. Use MC++  as appropriate..


And of course, we should remember these wise words: Tips for a Successful MSFT Presentation.


Then I thought I’d ask you folks – what do you value?  What gets you to give high marks on the session survey?  (we take that very seriously you know)..
