Next week I’m going to be attending the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference or PDC. I’m very fortunate to have been able to attend three PDC’s previously in 2003, 2005, and 2008. These events included the first looks at Windows Longhorn, Avalon, Aero, Indigo, IE7, Office 12 and “the ribbon”, first looks at Windows 7, Azure, […]
Yup…. anther adventure in LA. THis time, unlike last PDC I didn’t have to spend 10 hours or whatever it was stranded in an airport half way! However this time, I started to wonder as intersection after intersection downtown had flashing red lights and people trying to remember how a four way stop worked. [Now, […]
I have funny feeling that the MSN Developer Center will be launched at PDC. Their 404 error page for the web page listed in their early add in MSDN Magazine has now been replaced with an updated page that lists September 13th as the day.

It was interesting not so much because of any specific content, (Although there was definitely some great content!) but rather because the panel did not […]
Today I was very excited to wake up in LA knowing full well that I didn’t need to depend on a form of transportation other than my own two feet to get me to the PDC. (I confess, I took the shuttle, but I could have walked). Arriving early at the site to register (Thanks […]
What started out as a day of excitment boarding a plane to head west to LA almost become a day ending wondering what strange city (Other than LA) I might rest my head in. While transfering planes half way accorss the country we were informed that the Air Traffic Control Center for southern California had to […]
