ABOUT THE PDC
The Professional Developers Conference (PDC) is the definitive developer event focused on the technical strategy of the Microsoft developer platform. Attendees come from around the world to learn about the future of Microsoft developer technology directly from the people who make it happen. If you’re a developer, architect or technology leader involved in making strategic technology decisions for your company or organization, the PDC is for you.
Since 1991, the PDC has been the epicenter of Microsoft’s biggest platform announcements, including Microsoft .NET, Windows® XP, Windows Vista® and Windows 7®. This year, you’ll hear more details about our services platform, Windows®, the Web, devices, and our next generation of developer tools.
WHAT YOU’LL GET AT THE PDC
- Microsoft’s vision and roadmap for the future of developer technology. PDC is where our biggest names make the biggest announcements. Keynoters Ray Ozzie and Bob Muglia will share their vision for developer technology at PDC09. More keynoters still to be announced!
- Deep, technical content delivered by Microsoft’s technology leaders. At the PDC, you’ll have the unique opportunity to learn directly from the people who conceived and built the latest Microsoft developer platform technologies and tools. Much of what’s featured at the PDC has yet to be released, and as a result, session content comes in ‘hot’ and is published all the way up to the event date. Subscribe to the New Sessions RSS to stay on top of published sessions.
- Hands-on access to the latest developer technologies and over 1,000 Microsoft product and technology experts available to answer your questions. The PDC isn’t just about keynotes and sessions – it’s an opportunity for you to get hands-on access to the latest technologies, have your questions answered by Microsoft program managers and developers and plan the features and architecture to support your product and business goals.
- Unique networking opportunities with leading-edge developers and technology leaders just like you. You’ll be among your tribe at PDC09, and we’ve planned a number of special events and places for you to take advantage of the opportunity to connect with and learn from attendees that share your technology interests and business challenges.
