Hot off the presses! Attendees at the MSDN Developer Conferences being held over the next couple months will each receive a DVD containing Windows 7 Beta 1. So not only will you be "among the first to see Windows 7", you'll be among the first to install and try out Windows 7!
This is so new, that we'll have to ship DVDs to those attending the early events in Orlando, Houston, and Atlanta after the fact, but they should be ready to hand out at the Boston and New York events in January.
Of course, there's a lot more going at at MDC - three tracks and twelve sessions on Windows Azure and cloud computing, the future of the Microsoft languages (Visual Basic, C#, and F#), the evolution of .NET 4.0 and VS 2010, and more.
Here's the registration links for our area, followed by the complete list of venues across the country. I'll be presenting in Boston, so look forward to seeing you there.
January 20, 2009 - New York (Marriott Marquis)
