PDC08… It happened, I was there, and now it’s over. I’ve been watching some of the sessions that I didn’t catch, some of the ones I did just to see what I missed, as well as some additional related content published by channel9 and other people within the community. I was challenged though to name my Top 3 PDC sessions, out of them all. Now, that’s hard. You almost have to put it in context. The context I’m giving it is: “What if I am a developer or an architect and want to quickly get an overview of what this Azure, Oslo, Dublin is?”. Dublin, some might argue, is not a big a thing as the others, but seeing that I do alot of BizTalk development and architecture I really thought the session was one of my favorites. It also shows of the new WCF/WF 4.0 features, so you kind of get two in one there. So these are my three favorite sessions:
TL23 – A lap around Oslo (Doug Purdy)
BB18 – “Dublin”: Hosting and Managing Workflows and Services in Windows Application Server (Dan Eshner)
ES01 – Developing and deploying your first cloud service (Steve Marx)
The best way to get a hold of these that I know of is to go to the microsoftpdc site and download them of of there.
