Each year at our internal technical conferences (Dangerous) Dan Arildson and myself have delivered a session called the Windows Mobile Smackdown.
We even recorded a video through Channel 8 of our antics at last one which got published earlier this year.
The Smackdown is a session where we show cool applications and solutions for Windows Mobile. It is all Live demos – no safety nets.
We got asked to do the same session at Tech-Ed US this year and Dan and I hit 21 of 21 demos all live – no failures!
