Microsoft Announces PDC10 – October 28 + 29, 2010


A strange thing happened this past week at the Northwest Arkansas TechFest, several of us were sitting around in the speaker room talking about conferences and trying to determine if Microsoft would be have a Professional Developer Conference (PDC) this year.  News from our Microsoft Developer Evangelist was that they had been told no PDC this year.  We also had several discussions about what would be talked about, I mean there doesn’t seem to be that much new stuff scheduled to ship.

Well it looks like there will be a Microsoft PDC 2010, Chris Koenig just announced it on his blog “Microsoft PDC 2010”.

Looking at the Microsoft PDC 10 site I noticed the same things that Chris points out in his blog post that differs from previous PDCs.

  • Held on Microsoft Campus
  • 2 days instead of 3
  • Registration price is reduced to $1,000

I guess if Microsoft can host a huge number of MVPs for a summit once a year, they should be able to host this easily enough.  Actually will probably be easier.

Look like the focus is going to be on “Cloud Services, Phone, Tools & Technologies, Internet Explorer and Gaming”. 

Keep checking on the main site for more information.
