The things we do to make PDC great….


Monday we start our 2nd set of dry runs for nearly all the breakout sessions content at the PDC.  These dry runs not only serve as an excellence forcing function to get the talks done, but they give the MS folks here in Redmond a chance to see the PDC content before the event. 


 


Last week’s dry runs were a lot of fun, the talks are really coming together.  I did a dry run for part of my precon and got some excellent feedback.  I also enjoyed watch many other sessions including HPC, VS futures talks, a really great Avalon talk.


 


I know I have a few Microsoft employees that read my blog… I’d like to encourage you to attend as many of these as possible and to forwad to your freinds and co-workers.  The full (and up to date) list is here… it includes room numbers, etc: http://pdc2005/Shared%20Documents/PDC05%20Dry%20Run%20Schedule%20-%20Audience%20Viewing.xls (sorry, only works for internal folks, see everyone else at the PDC)
