MEDC Australia - Done, next stop Christchurch.

MEDC Australia is now done, I had a great time in Sydney, it's been a tough schedule, arriving from Seattle the day before rehearsals, then the event, and customer meetings today .

There were four sessions on the Windows Embedded track, these were:

  1. Windows XP Embedded SP2 Feature Pack 2007 (presented by Jason Tolley who works for ROK based out of Melbourne and is obviously very knowledgeable about Windows XP Embedded) - and Windows XP Embedded futures (presented by me!)
  2. .NET MicroFramework (presented by me)
  3. Getting the most out of Windows Embedded CE 6.0 SP1 (presented by me)
  4. Microsoft Robotics Studio (presented by me)

I hope the Oz guys decide to run another event next year, I'd certainly be interested in coming back (assuming that they would be interested in having me come back!).

If you attended any of the sessions at MEDC Oz I'd be happy to answer any questions you have from the embedded track, and would of course be interested in any comments/feedback on the sessions.

Here's some shots from around the conference, here's the staircase in the entrance of the hotel to get to the event.

Next stop NZ for the "mini-MEDC", and then more customer meetings before flying back to sunny old Seattle.
