    Here in the Developer & Platform group at Microsoft NZ we’re constantly looking for ways to help and connect with New Zealand technical audiences.

    Excellent keynote from Steven Sinofsky opened the morning – how we built Windows 7, what a great story to tell to a room full of developers. Steven showed off a whole pile of new hardware from netbooks to ultra-thin notebooks, server strength workstations and consumer touch screens. He also demonstrated...

  • Blog Post: Professional Developers Conference – LA 17-19th November

    I’m looking forward to PDC again this year. Last year was the first time I have had the opportunity to attend and it was a real experience. We unleashed Windows Azure on the world and laid out the Microsoft cloud story, previewed the Office Web Apps plus a whole heap of other things – it was good to...

  • Blog Post: Parting Thoughts - PDC #5

    The final PDC session has just finished and the event comes to an end. There's thousands of people heading to the airport - hopefully with their heads full of ideas and schemes that they will take back to their countries and organisations, where they will be the proponents of the PDC message in their...
  • Blog Post: PDC #4

    Thinking about the cloud So last day at PDC (Thursday) - no big announcements or showcases today.

    It's been a big couple of days here at PDC where we've made some of the biggest announcements in the history of the company.

    Love these online bling badges... So we've arrived in LA. Just checked the PDC website there's been some updates and changes.

  • Blog Post: From the Horse's Mouth

    The Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC) is coming soon. We pretty much only run PDC when we have some big things to talk about...real big things. People talk about the ".NET" PDC and the "Longhorn" PDC and this year will be no different. I think it will go down as the...
