Keep track of all the latest news and events on developer tools and technologies you care about
We’re just three days away from the PDC10 event at our Reading campus (and around the country at a number of universities). It promises be a great evening and we’ve got some fun stuff in store. The team in Redmond recently announced the PDC10 agenda here.
Here are our five top tips to help you make the most of Thursday evening:
· Bring your laptop - we’ll have Wi-Fi and we’ll be using Twitter to share information, commentary and run prize draws. This is a great opportunity to get involved online and provide running commentary to your followers, friends and colleagues who may not be at the event.
· Bring glasses if you need them. We’ll be using large screens but the content is winging its way from Redmond and there may be times when you need to look closely to view a demo or code. Unfortunately we can’t control the video feed.
· Connect with your peers. The UK developer community is a passionate and committed group of developers. If you haven’t been to one of our events before then this is a great chance to get know each other and share your opinions on the PDC announcements and other activities throughout the evening.
· Eat, drink and be merry! The event will go on to midnight UK time so we’ll keep you well-fed with pizza, nibbles and drinks at the start of the event. There’ll also be plenty of sugary treats available throughout the evening to keep you wide awake.
· Follow the UK MSDN blog afterwards for a summary of the evening and all the key resources you’ll need. You may even spot yourself in a photo…
Alright on the night
This is a new event format for us and we’ve done our very best to make sure the remote event experience, whether at home or at our campus, is as good as it can be. As with all things there’s a small chance we might have some techy challenges (we once had a live stream fail because somebody cut the internet line in Egypt!), but you can rest assured that your UK evangelist hosts will work their socks off to resolve any niggles that might occur.
See you on Thursday!
My laptop has a 3 hour battery life (less when I'm using wi-fi) and this is a 7 hour event - will we be able to get power in the conference room?
Hi Colin - yes, there are some plug sockets in the room. See you on Thursday :)
