Next week, June 5th and 6th, I will be holding two focus group sessions at TechEd 2008 in Orlando.  If you are interested in S+S Blueprints and/or Software Factories and would like to help Microsoft chart the future direction in either of these areas, please click on the email link and let me know which session you would like join.

YOU WILL GET SCHWAG YOU CAN'T GET ANYWHERE ELSE AT TechEd!

Here's the description and details for each group:

S+S Blueprints Focus Group (max 20 attendees)

Orange County Convention Center N329
Thursday June 5, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Building Software-plus-Services applications involves combining multiple platforms and technologies. As new technologies and architectures evolve Microsoft is building more Software-plus-Services Blueprints to help bridge the gap between vision and technologies, reduce friction and show you how to build great S+S applications.  We will also be sharing our expanded plans for Software Factories and how they relate to S+S Blueprints.

Software Factories Focus Group (max 20 attendees)

Orange County Convention Center N329
Friday June 6, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Software Factories help reduce the cost, time and risk in building complex applications.  Designed to help harvest and reapply development knowledge, provide patterns and apply best practices they deliver guidance, code and tools.

Microsoft is expanding its Software Factories Initiative to cover more of the application life cycle, to include more guidance and tools to help in building factories as well as developing more factories to help build Software-plus-Services applications.  We will also be sharing our plans for new Software-plus-Services Blueprints and discussing how they relate to Software Factories

Hope to see you there!
