If you are developing applications inside of Microsoft Office or developing applications that work with Microsoft Office, then you've got to go to the upcoming Office Developer Conference in San Jose next month. I've been asked to demonstrate and talk about the Groove/Virtual Earth integration that I built in a few days over the summer for secure geo-collaboration. It seems that the demonstration has taken on a life of its own and generated quite a bit of excitement in the public sector all over the world.
Even better than the presentations and tracks (5 technical tracks, and ~90 breakout sessions and hands-on labs) are the discussions and synergies that emerge the convergence that such a conference produces. I can't wait to meet customers and partners to see what cool things they're doing and to open their eyes to the possibilities that the Microsoft Office Platform enables.
There will even be a keynote from Bill Gates.
See you there!
