So before coming to Microsoft, I had never gotten the opportunity to actually go to a PDC. Yeah, more 3 letter acronyms. That would be our Professional Developer's Conference. This year, I am very happy to say that I am finally going 🙂
So, here are some details in case anyone out there is interested in sharing Oxygen with some of the most brilliant minds in the tech industry, and learning about what's new, cool, and what's still coming as far as the Microsoft Platform. Hey, if nothing else, it's in Los Angeles! Also, if you sign up now you even get a discount:
