It's just a month away and I'm excited that I'll be attending the Office Developers Conference, what we affectionally call ODC. Hosted in San Jose on FEB 10-13, this event will feature some good OBA stories, announcements, as well as a BillG keynote. (Maybe this will be the time that I can shake the man's hand.) Anyway, shoot me an email if you'll be there. Would love to meet others there.
From the ODC website,
We have incredible keynotes by senior Microsoft executives, starting with a special opening keynote by Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates. We’ll have hot new sessions that bring together diverse topics, from application composition to Software+Services, SharePoint & Silverlight to VOIP & OOXML, and everything in between!
We have 5 technical tracks, and 70+ breakout sessions and hands-on labs. And for the first time ever, we will have an Executive Track where analysts, Microsoft and industry executives will get together to discuss the how and why of Office business applications and their competitive advantages.
