TechEd EMEA: we are missing you Mike!
Dion (Windows CE TPM), Pierre (French Embedded Developer Evangelist), Lynda (Windows Embedded Standard guru), me and other folks from the Embedded group are actually at TechEd EMEA in Barcelona. We are presenting sessions belonging to the huge Embedded track Catherine has been securing.
So the Embedded track has a lot of sessions covering a bunch of interesting topics. Frank Prengel, from Germany, just presented a cool session on Web Services on Devices (implementation of the Device Profile for Web Services industry standard). He presented a demo where he could manage a washing machine that is WSD aware from his Media Center, all live during the session (yes, they brought a washing machine in the breakout room)… Cool Eh!
Dion is actually presenting his Windows CE 6 overview session and I will then talk about Windows Embedded NavReady with Pierre. Here are some pictures of Dion’s session (before and during it):
Mike, we are all like orphans without you over here! Our rock star would have been in the top ten speakers for sure! Barcelona is a lot of fun and you would have loved it (I swear I am not trying to make you sad). To let you know what we are going into (while you are doing beans testing in Redmond): Dion and I have have to decide for what we will be doing tonight, whether going to the community diner to drink free beer with Embedded developers or joining students at an indoor karting party (I bet drinking free beer too :-)). You can imagine the dilemma… terrible experience! Whish you were here!
