MEDC 2006 Las Vegas is now over – at the end of the last day I spent time talking to attendees and speakers, everyone seems to agree that this years event had a really good feel to it, there was a definate buzz at the event, it “felt” busy. The announce of Windows CE 6 Beta with the kernel changes and tools update seems to have gone over really well.
I arrived at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas on Sunday morning, May 7th and started work on keynote, sessions and labs, the only time I stepped outside the hotel was 8:30pm on Thursday May 11th to head for the airport – that was one really busy week.
One of the strangest sights at the Venetian hotel is the living statue – the guy just stands there for hours, very strange.
Once the MEDC International events are over I can concentrate on getting some Windows CE 6 articles published to MSDN and also work on getting some video tutorials pulled together. Next stop is Melbourne/Australia on May 25th. Loke Uei and I are planning on taking video cameras to the international events so we can interview speakers and attendees to get their thoughts on Windows Embedded and Windows Mobile development.
