The Web site is live and you can now register for TechEd US. This year it will take place in Los Angeles, CA from May 11-15.
So what will be available for you Embedded developers?
the answer is: 2 pre-con seminars and a full track of breakout sessions. The pre-cons will be dedicated to the core Embedded developers and will bring you through deep dive into the latest generation of tools for creating Windows Embedded devices. You will get a chance to meet with the product teams and to be presented the latest technologies and tools for Windows Embedded CE and Windows Embedded Standard. Each of the precon is a full day of demo packed deep dive sessions. The main event track will be presenting the Windows Embedded technologies to a more broad audience: lots of concrete demos on how to use Windows Embedded to build specific devices and overviews, roadmaps… So this year, TechEd gives Embedded developers a place where they can network and learn more about the technologies they already use today (pre-cons) and a unique occasion to extend their knowledge on technologies that are now part of the Embedded development story like .Net, Silverlight, Web Services during the main TechEd event. And non-Embedded developers a place where to discover Windows Embedded and learn how to leverage their actual developer skills to build the future generation of devices.
BTW, is there any particular sessions you would like to see (both for the deep technical dive session and for the main track)? Feel free to comment on this post!
