It is almost the end of another year. It has been a VERY eventful 12 months with changes in jobs and countries among other things. It was just over a year ago that I attended PDC 2003 [Edited] in LA, and it was quite a defining time for me. It'll be fun to see what I'm doing by the time PDC 2005 rolls around next year.
If you are a developer working with Microsoft technologies, you need to mark the 13th till the 16th of September 2005 down in your calendar now. I'll be there: http://msdn.microsoft.com/events/pdc/
