First Day at MDC

It was really exciting to see all the momentum around Mobile Development and specially around the next version of VS and NET CF. The most common questions I got at the booth was – where are the DVDs? I think the DVDs missed the ‘in-the-bag’ deadline so they should be coming tomorrow (3/25). I talked to a few people to determine how they will get them. It appears that the CDs will be made available during the Keynote session on Thursday.

I also heard a lot of people (specially those who had just started doing mobile development) feel confused about differences in Windows Mobile vs. PPC 2003 vs. Windows CE .NET. I’ll post a blog on this when I back in office next week.

Hope everyone is having a great time at the conference. Swing by to the .NET CF and Mobile booth and talk to a number of us from the product groups who will be happy to answer your questions around Mobile development, .NET CF and Visual Studio .NET

    I’m so envious!

    Re. the DVDs: that could just be a standard practice. I seem to remember that at PDC last year we didn’t get the bits until after the first keynote.

    It might simply be that they really, really want people to pay attention at the keynote 🙂

    Hmm… that was an interesting observation, though I am certain that was not the intention of anyone here.
