The Professional Developers Conference (PDC) is November 17-19 in Los Angeles, and will be one of the best ways to get your fill of the latest developer tech:
I went last year (and just confirmed I can make it again this year) and it’s several intense days of conversations and content. You can get an idea of what’s in store by reviewing the session recordings from PDC 2008, available for free.
Birds of a Feather Sessions
The Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions are a great way to connect with other attendees and build from each others’ experiences. ("What is a Birds-of-a-Feather Session?") A number of BOF sessions will be selected and scheduled throughout PDC.
You can also follow BOF on Twitter.
Free Pre-Conference Windows 7 Bootcamp
The day before PDC (11/16) is an opportunity to attend a number of excellent paid pre-conference workshops on a variety of topics.
You can also sign up for a free Windows 7 Developer Boot Camp that’s open to everyone (not just people attending PDC.)
