In the run-up to any operating system release, we start to see a lot of “world tour fever” and Windows 7 is no different. Windows has a huge partner ecosystem, and we want to make sure that we at least stand a fighting chance of helping you get it done by at least getting a little bit closer to where you are – and that involves collecting a few frequent flier miles.

June looks to be USA month, and I saw this come across my email, so I figured I’d share it. The Developer and Partner Evangelism (DPE) team is holding 4 events in June for ISVs:

June 1 – Mountain View, CA

June 8 – Reston, VA

June 15 – Alpharetta, GA

June 22 – Waltham, MA

If you’re interested in an opportunity to work with some of our engineers to test your application on Windows 7 (and get some help debugging it if it doesn’t work), you can register here:

I’m not doing any of these myself, though I’ve done these events in Taipei and Tokyo and they’ve always been very enlightening and can start a great dialog. I hope some of you are able to attend!
