If you are a Microsoft hardware partner, you may already know that registration is now open for WinHEC 2006, May 23-25, 2006, in Seattle. The theme this year is "Advancing The Platform," and with Windows Vista launching later this year, this will be a great chance to learn more about the core OS architecture.

Registration & Pricing

If you've attended a WinHEC in the past, you know that this is one of the technical events to attend, as many representatives from across the Microsoft product teams attend the sessions. And if you can't make it in person, after the conference you'll find (as is available from WinHEC 2005) many of the presentations, Bill Gates' keynote and audio recordings of the sessions posted online.
