  • Blog Post: Arrived in Amsterdam

    I arrived in town this morning. After clearing some eMail I visited the RAI Center. It's a few years since I visited the RAI but I'd forgotten how HUGE it is. It took me some time to find someone who could let me in. I spent the afternoon in the keynote room getting a few things sorted out for the Mobile...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Europe - Final stop on the MDC World Tour

    This week and next I've been preparing for my trip to Amsterdam to attend TechEd Europe and the MDC we're having there. Steve Lombardi and I have been working on our keynote demo and it promises to be something a little bit special. We thought we'd save the best til last. If you can make it there, we...
  • Blog Post: Passing on the MDC Keynote Demo Torch

    We have MDC in Canada coming up next week. I spent some time today with Craig Neable passing on the “MDC Keynote Demo” torch which had already passed from Ori to me. I took Craig through the demo, some of the tips and tricks to making sure that Visual Studio 2005 doesn't blow up in your face...
  • Blog Post: Last MDC post for a while

    I fly out of Malaysia early this evening. Yesterday we transferred from the Sunway Lagoon Resort hotel to the Mandarin Oriental which is musch closer to the MSFT office. I visited the MSFT office which is in the Petronas Towers which, if you didn't know, are the tallest twin towers in the world standing...
  • Blog Post: Arrived for MDC Malaysia

    I've safely arrived at the convention center and am in the keynote room doing a run through. It's HOT! But I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. See you there.
  • Blog Post: Go Sydney! Developers turn out in numbers

    Thanks to everyone who turned out in Sydney today! The various demos seemed to go down well and I hope we've excited Australian developers about the Windows Mobile platform. It's a pity I have to leave tomorrow for our next stop because I'd like to have spent some time here and to walk the bridge. Next...
  • Blog Post: Prep Day is Over

    Our prep day in Australia is now over. I'm awake and it's 11:24pm so I must be over the jet lag already. All I have to do now is get to bed and get a good night's sleep. Oh .... and to people watching my demo tomorrow ... Hello!
  • Blog Post: MDC Australia, here I come

    I arrived in Australia this morning after a grueling 14 hour flight from San Francisco. I say grueling, to be honest it wasn't that bad as I managed to sleep through 11 hours of it. Add that to the two hours I got on the way down from Seattle and I think I may have set some sort of personal sleep record...
  • Blog Post: MDC US Nearly Over

    It's Saturday morning, around 10:30 and I'm sitting in Doug Boling's Post Conference session. Doug is running us through building an application using the .NET Compact Framework. We're building a Conference planner application. Because it's a full day session we can actually go through the WHOLE process...
  • Blog Post: Developers Are Awesome

    Thanks to anyone who came to either of my first two sessions today. What never ceases to amaze me is how quickly our developer community process and come up with interesting scenarios and questions around our development platform. For those who couldn't be here today, BillG announced the release of the...
  • Blog Post: Am I weird? This feels just like Christmas!

    I just got back to my hotel after the run through of the Panel session that is tomorrow at 10:30, right after the keynote. Yes, 11pm the night before the session was the only time I could get ALL the participants together for a run through. Craig Neable was filming some behind the scenes footage. I don...
  • Blog Post: MDC Comes Together

    I've been on site all day today and I'll be honest ... I'm not exactly sure where all the time went. At this stage it's a case of making sure that everything is where it's supposed to be, that all the speakers know where they're supposed to be when etc etc. It's been awesome to sit in the speaker lounge...
  • Blog Post: Arrival in San Francisco

    I arrived last night into San Francisco and took the BART downtown. I can highly recommend that for anyone staying in the downtown hotels. It costs 5 bucks and comes out very close to the Moscone Center. When I checked into my hotel I got a Windows Mobile Developer branded key card. It's so cool to see...
  • Blog Post: Final Preparations

    OK. It's been a while. Yesterday I got a batch of Pocket PCs for some of the speakers to use to do demonstrations in high resolution. Let me tell you, the screen is stunning :) I've seen a couple of other new devices about as well. You'll have to come to MDC where if you're lucky you might just see them...
  • Blog Post: Speakers, Slides and DVDs

    It's been a couple of weeks and no post. What the hell have I been up to? 1. I've finished signing up the speakers. We're working on getting all the session titles, abstracts and speaker bios in place. The speakers are starting to work on their decks. They're all very excited :) 2. I've just finished...
  • Blog Post: Recruiting Your MDC Speakers

    One of my MDC responsibilities is to decide what sessions we have and then to find speakers to fill those sessions. This is a responsibility I share with Kevin and Jono. In the spirit of “divide and conquer“ Kevin, Jono and I have divided the session list up and are taking responsibility...
  • Blog Post: The MDC Poster Fairy

    As Jono mentioned there are MDC posters appearing all over campus. One appeared on my door over the weekend, Jono's too. They're going up on the walls in all the Mobility buildings. It seems like the MDC poster fairy is in town. Now, I'm not saying anything about who the fairy might be but I should mention...
  • Blog Post: MDC Content Planning Kicks Off for Real

    I'm one of the lucky three who is in the content planning group for MDC. You can blame me - in part at least - if the session you wanted to come and see doesn't make it to MDC. We're striving for the right balance of tried and trusted sessions. new ideas and content covering forthcoming platforms. We...
