My session on Tuesday is a case study on WM 5.0+ VS2005 + CF 2.0 development to consume the PDC session RSS feed (the feed is here and element documentation here). So I have been 'head down' on this and other activities for a while now. I don’t want to release the code ahead of the session (just one more compile to do!) but I am aiming to share my experiences and code here later.
