The Windows Embedded group of Microsoft has promised a greater presence at TechEd. Well TechEd EMEA developers will be hosting a huge Embedded Track this year! More than 20 sessions will be delivered by experts covering all the Windows Embedded products along with some sessions on the .Net Microframework.
We will also have a great booth where you will discover cool devices and have the opportunity to ask all the questions you might have to our experts.
I will be there presenting 2 breakout sessions and 2 interactive sessions.
Here are the abstracts for these sessions. If you have any input about these sessions or specific points you would like to see covered during the interactive sessions, let me know.

Windows Embedded: Forget the OS (interactive session)
Embedded devices are becoming increasingly common. Whether you realize it not, you use them every day (when you withdraw cash at an ATM, when you refuel your car, when you pay with your credit card, when you drive, when you listen to music, …). In a market evolving at an incredible speed, and in an era of connectivity, device manufacturers need tools to quickly develop smart, rich, connected and service-oriented devices. Windows Embedded is a family of products providing these manufacturers the tools they need to spend their time and efforts on their value, rather than on reinventing the wheel. This interactive session will show you, through concrete demos, what the developer experience is when developing a Windows Embedded device and what the tools have to offer.
