DevCon here we come!

Hey all, I have been working to finish up the presentations, demo applications and lab machines for the presentations that I'll be giving at Embedded DevCon next week. Both of my presentations are on Thursday the 1st, so I'll be spending time meeting folks, answering questions and seeking better understanding of what we're currently doing well and where we can improve in the end-to-end Windows XP Embedded user experience.

Currently it appears you can only access the full contents of my presentation if you are officially registered for the conference. You can see the abstracts by going to and and navigating to the “Track: Application Development” sections. I'll be presenting XPEA Hands-on Lab 1 (application development for XP Embedded) and XPEA-300 (remote debugging on XP Embedded). I'm really excited to share some of the tips and tricks I've learned during my time on the Visual Studio and .NET Framework team and combine that knowledge with resources specific to XP Embedded to enable easier and faster application development on this platform.

I hope to see you all at the conference!

I will be posting more later this week about some ideas around application repackaging, so stay tuned for that if you're looking here for setup technology discussions. The really interesting thing is that I've found that application repackaging is something that affects the embedded problem space just like it does for the desktop OS problem space, just with some different implications. In the next couple of days when I'm less tired I'll type up more and see where my thought processes go.....
