Wow! What a day yesterday. Yesterday was the launch event for Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office System. This was my first time participating in one of these large launch events since I joined the Evangelism team at Microsoft last year. It was really exciting to see so many folks coming out to learn about these two great products.
The conversations I had throughout the day with customers revealed that they are really excited about the new types of applications they’ll be able to build. The Windows Presentation Foundation seemed to have the most buzz during the day, as well as the new business applications enabled by MOSS 2007.
Thanks to everyone who showed up to see yours truly speak with William Zentmayer up on the big stage. We breezed over so much ground, but given the breadth of technologies available for developers in these platforms, it’s a good overview to understand what’s possible.
