Well, I am back in Canberra suffering slightly from jet-lag after my flight back from Seattle (via San Francisco). I won’t bore you with pictures of my tickets, but rest assured that I did fly and didn’t use Darren’s wormhole.
I know a few folks are keen to understand exactly what was said at the summit so here is a detailed agenda:
All the sessions in red really contain NDA material which can’t be public right now. This is one of the advantages of being an MVP in that we get to participate in a two way dialog with the product teams about things that they have got coming up and let them know if they missed some key scenarios for developers, however it is our responsibility to make sure that we don’t leak details about future product ideas that haven’t reached maturity. Having said that, its not like MIcrosoft isn’t sharing product ideas much earlier than previous years.
One of the things that I can tell you is that the web is still going to be an exciting place to be and Microsoft has some pretty cool innovations in this space that are both user focused and developer focused. If you want to get in the right place to take advantage of this stuff you really need to download and keep up to date with the latest CTPs and BETAs of the Orcas release of Visual Studio.
