Recently, we decided to do our next PDC in October of 2007. PDC focuses on the strategic vision for the Microsoft platform over the course of the next couple of years or so, and we emphasize technology capabilities and architecture more than training at this premier conference. We want PDC attendees to go home understanding what Microsoft is building, how it will help them deliver better/more valuable products, and why the technology is (or isn’t) suited to the demands of their particular application.
During the last PDC, we made an effort to have a better balance between technologies that developers could use in the near-term versus the long-term. We got some excellent feedback from you all around that and we are going to strive to continue that with the next PDC as well.
