PDC 09 content & learning resources


PDC 09 (premier Professional Developers Conference) was held in Los Angeles, CA from Nov. 15th-19th 2009. We covered some exciting technologies (Windows 7, Visual Studio 2010, Windows Azure, Silverlight 4, Office 2010 and Sharepoint Server 2010, etc), so we have listed some resources to make it easier for you to get familiar with them. Folks that weren’t available to travel can watch most/all of the sessions (available online), check out the decks and other resources (training materials).  Feel free to share this blogpost with your colleagues and development staff.
