    Folks, something tells me 2007 is going to be a great year for developers… Just as we start the planning process for Mix '07 , I saw that we announced the dates and location for PDC 2007… As most of you know, we only hold the PDC when there is big developer news.

  • Blog Post: Getting ready for the PDC Panel: Looking Ahead to the Future of the CLR

    By far the thing I like most about the PDC is hearing from customers… that means the Q&A part of any presentation is what I find most interesting. So it is no wonder that panels are my favorite format at the PDC… because they are nothing but Q&A… This year I will be hosting the “ Future...

    I am conflicted about my wardrobe for the week here at the PDC and I thought I would ask for your help ;-). The question is whether I should wear the blue shirt or not.
