With less than a week to go before this year's TechEd EMEA Developers conference, you may have started thinking about your schedule. So many sessions to see, so little time!
Last week, I posted a complete list of the Windows Embedded track sessions (TechEd EMEA 2008 Developers - Introducing the Windows Embedded track), but sometimes a raw list can be a bit daunting. So here's some additional information to help you navigate your way through that list. (Note that sessions may appear under multiple headings.)
If you want to see really cool/unusual demos... here are some that really stand out:
If you're interested in feature-level introductory sessions... (and there's nothing like a solid feature-level overview to help you get a better understanding of a specific product), here are some sessions to consider:
If you're looking for hard-core embedded development topics... here are some sessions you can really sink your teeth into:
If you want to understand web services on devices... now that more and more devices are becoming connected -consuming end exposing web services on devices is the next natural step. The Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS) is an industry specification that defines a minimal set of implementation constraints to enable secure Web service messaging, discovery, description and eventing on resource-constrained devices.
These sessions will explain what's available, and show you what's involved:
If you're not sure why you should care about embedded development, or how to approach it...
If you are a managed code developer...there are plenty of sessions for you. Did you know that the .NET Micro Framework is an embedded managed code bootable runtime? It even has a managed code device driver model! And POS for .NET - well, the name says it all.
You'll find lots of managed code in the following sessions:
If you're looking for sessions that focus on a specific embedded product offering...the session search tool doesn't distinguish between the different Windows Embedded products. So here's a list for you:
Sessions, in other tracks:
If you're looking for interactive sessions...we've got some of those too:
And if you're looking to get specific questions answered about embedded development or a Windows Embedded product, be sure to attend the expert panel session:
If you still haven't been able to find what you're looking for in the Windows Embedded track, please let me know! :-)
