On the Fence?Microsoft PDC is just a few weeks away, and you’ve probably already heard some of the buzz.   Windows Azure will go live, and of course, we’ve just released Windows 7 and Beta 2 of Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4 (by the way, not 4.0 as the marketing folks have told me).

It’s obviously an investment, both in time and in money, but as the premiere conference for developers and architects, where and when else are you going to have the opportunity to get the technical details and future strategy of the platform straight from the Microsoft product experts?  And Come to PDC!where else and when else will you have the chance to network with so many of your colleagues from around the world in one place?  You’ll have conversations that will guide your professional efforts far beyond the few days you’ll spend in LA, and besides, I hear there’s great parties too (you can leave that part out when you ask your boss to go!).

If you act before Friday, October 30th, you can get $300 off of the conference pass, and you can take advantage of the FREE Windows 7 Boot Camp on Monday, Nov. 16th, even if you can’t join us for the rest of the conference.
