The combined Mobile and Embedded Developers Conference (MEDC) is coming up in May – are there any specific topics you would want to see covered at this years event ?

content topics could cover:

  • Windows XP Embedded SP2
  • Windows CE 5.0
  • Native Application Development (Win32, MFC, ATL)
  • Managed Application Development (C#, VB)
  • Mappoint
  • Mobile Devices (development)

Anything else you would want to see at MEDC ? – specific topics ?

Note that the MEDC Web Site is expected to live towards the end of Feb… – I will post a URL when the site is live.

    Personally, I would like to see more classes on the inner workings of Platform Builder. Things like how exactly it build the OS, the stages it goes through, the files it pulls in, Where they come from, when they are pulled in and other topics of similar note. I believe that by knowing better how PB works, you can gain a better understanding of how the OS works.

    I currently am supporting 4.20 for the company I work for and I am quite envious of the other guys who are using 5.0 simply because their documentation is better, better organized and simply more informative…Even then, actually classes in the inner working s of PB would be beneficial.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I seem to remember Steve Maillet having a build system talk at last years developers conference – I’m sure Steve would be interested in presenting the session again this year (perhaps with content updated to cover Windows CE 5.0).

  3. I’ll definately be expanding on last years sessions. Of course it’s up to MS what sessions make it in the final cut. But MSDN2540N that we wrote for Microsoft contains a detailed analyses of the build system. We’ll soon be offering a self paced DVD version of that course.

    Any chance of this conference coming to Europe soon ?

  5. Anon says:

    Great news on the MSDN2540N! Is there any chance it is posted anywhere on the internet (or parts of it)?

  6. Mike says:

    Yes, absolutely, Europe, and Asia – I believe the events team are working on dates and location – once these are locked I will let you know… watch this space.

  7. Anon, no the MSDN2540N course is only avilalbe from qualified training facilities. We are polishing up a DVD based verion of the course and are working on the infrastructure to support an online based version as well.
