So I finally have some of my schedule figured out for the upcoming PDC.  Most important for me is to actually turn up to my own talk :).

Visual Studio Debugger Tips & Tricks
Tue 10/28 | 12:45 PM-1:30 PM | 409A

I'll be going over a few of my personal favourites, talking about how and why we do these features, and showing a few things that will be new in VS 2010.  I don't want to spoil the surprise too much though.  After that (at 1:30), John Robbins is setting up an open space on "the future of debugging".  I'm pretty excited by that obviously, and myself, David Gray, and a host of others from the team are looking forward to discussing this with you all.

 The most interesting talks for me are the following, although I'm not sure I'll actually make it to most of the sessions.

The ones marked in bold will be given by members of our team.  Sadly there are a lot of conflicts.  Grrr.

I'm particulalry excited by Justin and Habib's talk, as it lifts the lid on the application flight recorder / historical debugging feature that you've heard about in the news.  Hopefully you can all make it to that to get a sense of where this is at and where we are going with it.

I'll also be hanging around the lounge and HOL areas, so drop by and say hi.

See you all there,

John
