I will be presenting at VSLive! Orlando on May 15th. My session is "Embedding Presence in Your Applications". I'll cover why .NET developers should even bother with presence, the difference between the UC APIs, and your options for embedding presence in your applications. The focus is going to be around the client APIs, Communicator Automation API, UC Client API, UC AJAX and ActiveX Name Controls.
Microsoft has a .NET day with a lot of great presentations on Visual Studio 2008, TFS, ASP.NET and all almost anything else about .NET direct from Product & Program Managers at Microsoft.
As always there will be some of the big names there, like my favorite speakers: Rocky Lhotka, Brian Randell, Richard Hale Shaw, Deborah Kurata, and more: http://vslive.com/2008/orlando/speakers.aspx
I spoke at a couple of VSLive! conferences last year and they were a blast. The Orlando conference has a great location at the Royal Pacific Resort. However this time I won't have much time for more than a drink or two afterwards as I'm flying in the night before, speaking in the morning and flying out that evening. Is it me or do the margaritas just taste better in Florida?
