PDC 2010 is being held on October 28 and 29th at the Microsoft campus in Redmond.  It is sold out at this point, but the keynotes and sessions will be streamed live, and recordings will be available within 24 hours.   Additionally, we’re planning a number of local events in conjunction with the kick-off of PDC – look for more details on that in the coming weeks.

Now, for those of you headed to Redmond for the big event, we’ve just announced two FREE full-day, hands-on, deep-dive workshops – pick from Windows Azure or Windows Phone 7 – to be held on the Saturday after PDC, that’s October 30, 2010, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Breakfast, lunch, and dinner included!

PDC WorkshopsSome specifics:

    • The event is open only to registered PDC10 attendees.
    • Registration is required (with confirmations coming within two days after you’ve registered)
    • The event is free, but please only register if you’re committed to attending that Saturday and have arranged for travel and accommodations on your own.
    • The event will be in MIcrosoft’s Platform Adoption Center (with details sent to registered attendees)

Note, PDC 2010 is indeed sold out, but don’t let the stark “Sold Out” banner that you may see on the workshop announcement page scare you away.  Attendance is limited as mentioned above, but definitely wide open (at least as of this writing!)
