Yipeeeeee, PDC time!

Yep I'm off to LA at the end of the week. Originally I was supposed to do a session on Software Quality and Diagnostics for Services, but we gave that slot to some other folks, then I was not going, then I was added to the booth/lounge team and now I also have lunch panel on the future of unit testing(more of that in another post). I've been telling folks for a while that I think this is going to be the biggest PDC since at least the 2000 one where we launched .Net on the world and maybe even further back than that.

I'm going to be in LA for a week and its going to be a busy week, I'm posting my current schedule below, if you want to chat just mail me. Otherwise see you in LA!
