PDC 2009: Day 4 and conclusionsNo Comments
During the last day of the PDC I attended to Stream Insight session, it was really interesting. After the session I went to the Partners hall to visit the booth I didn’t visit in the first 3 days. In my personal opinion the two main topics presented in the PDC were in first order Windows Azure and finally DATA, with “Dallas” project , “M” project, Entity Framework, etc. You can find more details in the Data Developer Center
And of course another point that people talked about a lot, was the laptop that every attendee received for “free“. As you can see I highlighted free. In life nothing is for free, in some cases you pay with money and in other cases you pay differently but you never get rid of the payment. In my opinion giving for “free” this laptop was a very clever idea. Multi touch screens are very well known but they are not very massive. And Microsoft with this decision will have in the following months 4000 technical leaders testing Windows 7 Multi Touch APIs, giving feedback and helping Microsoft to enhance the upcoming versions. So, as a final conclusion we can say that the ~4000 attendees that were beneficiated with the laptop (without free word ) will be paying them with testing, technology evangelism and feedback. Good deal for both parts .
These 5 days experience was incredible, you learn a lot of things from many areas, of course you learn tips and presentation skills from great speakers, from all sessions and Keynotes I attended I choose Steven Sinofsky and Scott Hanselman, they have that special don to keep the audience always captive. You can also learn and see how to organize an event for 4000, how can 4k people eat in a timeframe of 1 hour without any kind of problem. In a scale from 1 to 10 I give without any doubt a 10.
