Proposed MDEC Australia Agenda


We’re well into the planning phases for MDEC2005 in Melbourne (June 20) and Sydney (June 22). Here’s almost the final agenda for the day. What I’d like is a sanity check. Have I missed anything obvious, is there too much of anything? Feedback apprectaied either via contact me or via the comments engine.

    <p>Andrew Coates has listed the <a href="http://blogs.msdn.com/acoat/archive/2005/05/01/413816.aspx">session list</a>for the MEDC in Sydney, and I must say its a let down.</p><p>I mean enough of the "Introduction" sessions … we cant we get so

  2. Hi James – yep – it’s tough to condense the 155 sessions at the US MEDC down to the 8 we can deliver in Melbourne and Sydney. The philosophy we used was that it was important not to exclude folks not yet doing serious mobile development. I must admit we agonised over the level of sessions to deliver, but decided in the end to go for making the content accessible to as many developers as possible. I would love to be able to run more in-depth sessions on mobile development. There will, I think, be some at TechEd (see http://blogs.msdn.com/charles_sterling/archive/2005/03/01/381960.aspx) and perhaps we could do some more at the next CodeCampOz.

    Cheers,

    Andrew
