The MDC Arrives on Thursday

The MSDN Developer Conference (MDC) is coming to the Sheraton Boston this Thursday, January 22nd, with a full day of cutting edge content for developers, modeled after the Professional Developers Conference (PDC).

Sold Out!

There's been an amazing response to the event, but unfortunately we've hit the limit of how many attendees we can accommodate! Registration is currently closed, but I'll update this post if we're able to expand it later.

The Schedule

We have a great lineup of speakers for the event, with a keynote and twelve sessions in three tracks.  The Boston event page has the details on the speakers and times, and here's the session grid:

WomenBuild at the Boston MDC

womenbuild The Boston MDC will feature two Lego SeriousPlay WomenBuild workshops (at 12:30 and 2:00).  The focus is on diversity in tech, featuring a combination of workshops and talks.  This is an industry-wide issue, and all attendees, men and women, are welcome to participate.

This workshop has been well received at other events.  Some quotes:

  • “This was the best session I have ever attended at a conference”
  • “That was the fastest hour and a half!”
  • "This seminar is an eye-opening experience.  I feel it’s of great value to women in technology."

Since the event is only 90 minutes, you'll have plenty of time to catch most of the day's other content as well.

See you in Boston!
