Announcing the MSDN Developer Conference Series (Boston on January 22nd!)


MSDN Developer Conference

A fantastic series of one-day conferences is coming, bringing the latest technology from Microsoft to 11 cities across the US.  The MSDN Developer Conference features 12 sessions in three tracks:

  1. Cloud Services

    Use Windows Azure, Live Mesh, and more to create apps that bridge the gaps between PC, Web, and phone

  2. Client and Presentation

    See the state of the art and future plans for ASP.NET 4.0, WPF, and Silverlight

  3. Tools, Languages and Framework

    Learn about Visual Studio 2010, Language Futures, Oslo, and Parallel Programming

Think of this as the greatest hits of PDC coming to you.

A full day of content for $99.   And of course some nice giveaways as well.
