Greetings from Orlando: Please visit us at TechEd!

Hi everybody,


So by now most of you who are attending TechEd Developer week have probably made it to Orlando. Hope you guys are enjoying the sunshine. I sure am. I’ve spent the day by the pool rehearsing for my talk on Wednesday. Don’t blame me, though, since I’m a sun-deprived Washingtonian! Even we deserve some sunshine every once in a while!


Anyway, enough joking, we have a lot of interesting events coming up at TechEd this week, so make sure to check them out.


So, tomorrow (Tuesday, June 3, 2008), after you have attended Bill Gates’ final keynote, make sure to visit us at the Windows Mobile booth, we will have exhibitions featuring cool technologies, such as Silverlight, Visual Studio 2008 for Devices, Line of Business Accelerator and a general device showcase with cool new devices.


My team will also be administering a survey on a set of Windows Mobile devices, so make sure to take it!


Tomorrow, Maarten Struys will give a talk on “The .NET Compact Framework 3.5 Powertoys.” The talk will take place at the Technical Learning Center near the Windows Mobile booth. It will be from noon to one. So you might want to sacrifice your lunch break to attend Maarten’s talk.


I will be at the Bloggers Lounge from 2 to 3 PM tomorrow (June 3, 2008), so please come and visit me.


We also have some cool events planned for Wednesday. At 1 PM, make sure to join us for our final Webcast out of our 5-part series. This is your perfect opportunity to meet us in person and ask us anything you want to know. Be aware, though, we may interview you during the Webcast! If you are unable to see us live, you can still join us by registering for the Webcast: MSDN Webcast: Live from Orlando: Developing Windows Mobile Applications.


My talk, “Beyond Maps with the Windows Embedded CE Platform” will start on Wednesday, June 4, 2008 at 2:45 PM. If you want to learn how to build your next cool location-aware application, please make sure to join me.


I'm looking forward to meeting some of you in person.


Also, make sure to visit Rob Tiffany's blog to read about any additional TechEd activities for Windows Mobile.



Enjoy TechEd and see you soon!
