Cloud computing, Software plus services, Windows Azure, SQL Services, Live Services, Windows 7,  Visual Studio 2010, .NET 4.0 Framework, etc, etc….  Did you miss all of the news coming out of the Microsoft Professional Developer Conference in Los Angeles last month? Or, maybe you caught some of it, but were so overwhelmed by the fire hose of information, you weren’t able to digest it all?  (My brain is STILL on overload from all the new technology announcements & demos.)

Have no fear, if you weren’t able to make it to the PDC, now is your opportunity to learn about all of the latest developer technologies from Microsoft in a city near you!  A fantastic series of one-day conferences is coming to 11 cities across the US.  The MSDN Developer Conference features 12 sessions in three tracks:

  1. Cloud Services
    Use Windows Azure, Live Mesh, and more to create apps that bridge the gaps between PC, Web, and phone

  2. Client and Presentation
    See the state of the art and future plans for ASP.NET 4.0, WPF, and Silverlight

  3. Tools, Languages and Framework
    Learn about Visual Studio 2010, Language Futures, Oslo, and Parallel Programming

    Think of this as the greatest hits of PDC coming to you!

    A full day of content for $99.  And of course some nice giveaways as well.
