Windows CE guides Vista and Office 2007 around the UK

In case you hadn’t noticed Microsoft UK kicked off the Developer launch for Windows Vista and the Office system 2007 today with two days of activity at our offices in Reading.  The event was so popular that there wasn’t enough room for everyone so Mike, Mark, Daniel and Martin are taking to the road next week to bring the content to a venue near you.

In about 90 minutes they will introduce you to the developer story for:

·         Windows Vista’s new operating system features that your application can use.

·         The .NET Framework version 3.0, including support for application workflow, distributed applications and a rich presentation layer.

·         The new Office 2007 System and how you can access the data in documents; surface your information and create a context aware interface for your users.

And what will be guiding them around the country in this intrepid expedition, none other than Windows CE in the form of a Sat Nav donated by our Partners at RoadAngel.  This devices will not only guide them around the highways and byways but will also warn them of accident blackspots ensuring they get to all their presentations in one piece.   

They will be driving a pretty distinctive car – So if you see them, and it’s safe to do so, pull alongside and give them a wave.

...and if you attend one of the events you’ll have the opportunity to win this very Sat Nav, fully roadtested and conveniently programmed with to location of the Microsoft office and all the events venues J.
