The Final Stretch to TechDays

Ah, duct tape. Is there anything it can't do?

Earlier today, I made my way down to the local office here in Calgary to ship two laptops back to Mississauga. For the past few days, I've been preparing these machines for the Windows Developer track and Web Developer track of Microsoft Tech•Days Canada 2008. They are to be used by the presenters who will be delivering the developer-specific sessions across the country.

So many laptops, so little time...

With the two developer tracks combined, that's a total of 16 individual sessions, each of which has a number of exciting demos on technologies such as ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, Microsoft Sync Framework, Windows Vista, and the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).

We have seven days until things get kicked off in Toronto. It's been a lot of work for all of us involved in Microsoft Tech•Days Canada 2008. At the end of the day, we think you'll walk away from this event with a greater understanding of the amazing technologies and tools we have to ensure your success when building either Windows or Web applications.

Oh, and before I forget, there's still time available to register for Microsoft Tech•Days Canada 2008 with the Early Bird pricing promotion we offered earlier this month. In fact, it's been extended until October 29th so make sure to take advantage of this great deal!

    Is the material presented at the two day locales (toronto, calgary, vancouver) the same?

  2. @Mike Johnson: For the most part, yes. The only variance you will see across the cities is in the delivery of the sessions themselves (since they will be delivered by different speakers). Please note that this also means that some of the anecdotal evidence that is shared during the sessions will be different from city to city (again, because of the different speakers in each city). That stated, the slides and demos are going to be the same across all cities. Our intention is to have a consistent experience in all cities for TechDays.

    Please feel free to send me an e-mail at if you have any additional questions.
