Developer conferences are impressive events but are normally
expensive to attend, either money or time.
The Microsoft Professional
Developers Conference (PDC) was no exception until this year!
Instead of going thousands of miles to the US you can join
us on October 28th at one of 7 university locations around the UK for students
interested in leading edge technologies and for professional developers who
want to watch and listen to Microsoft Executives via High Definition Live
Streaming direct from the US.
Since 1991, the PDC has been the centre for students,
developers and architects to gather and hear about the next generation of
Microsoft technologies. This year will be no exception and for the first time
you are invited!
The live streaming of the keynote sessions will be top and
tailed with local UK Microsoft staff and NACUE members to help answer any
questions and manage the local interactive online Q&A! The keynotes detail
the direction Microsoft is heading and will this year focus on Client &
Devices, Cloud Services, and Frameworks & Tools. Following this event
there will be more detailed sessions available for you to watch one line from
Our local sessions will let you engage with like-minded
students and developers to learn about our new technology developments.

If you can't make one of those venues and you're
near our offices in Reading, you can stop by here to watch it, too! Details here

Not really that near if you live in Scotland! ..and plans for a Scottish venue?
Might be nice to organise an event at Reading University - a few miles from TVP - but not an easy trip for the students (like my son)
We're running the event at TVP too - so students from University of Reading and the surrounding area can come along to our head office and meet us as well as watch the event from here!
Yeah, why no venues in Scotland? :-(
There's a big software developer community here!
Would have been great if Microsoft U.K. could have got a few more universities onboard for this event. How about trying to get universities no futher than say 75 to 100 miles from most U.K. locations next time please?
Leeds, York, Teesside or Durham university for example would have been a good choice for the North-East of England.
