Community Courtyard

As good as the sessions are, there's always more to explore and discuss. At MDC, you'll have a chance to step into the Community Courtyard and choose what to talk about, based on your interest and passion for the subject.

Running in tandem with the presentations is an open discussion area where you will choose the subjects and the participants.  Whether you want to mingle with the presenters, talk about an MDC session, a related subject or something else you have the opportunity.  Borrowing from Open Space Technology and other forms of open, community-driven discussion, using fishbowls and free-for-alls, this area is yours.

    We don’t know when Windows 7 Beta will be released. What we will do is ship a DVD to any MSDN Developer Conference attendee once it is available. If on the chance it comes out before all the MDC events are complete we may be able to provide it on site. No promises there. The key is that if you attend an MDC event you will receive a Windows 7 Beta DVD. To register for an MDC event visit
