This year’s Professional Developer Conference – PDC2008 - is kicking off today in Los Angeles, and is shaping up to be one of the most significant developer events from Microsoft in a long time.
In addition to major technology announcements around cloud-computing and Windows 7, MSDN and CodePlex are in the Microsoft Pavilion, so if you are at the event, stop by and see us!
Chris Slemp (cslemp on Twitter) and other members of the team are at the MSDN booth, where you can learn about our new DevLabs site, and how social bookmarking is enabling developers to contribute directly to the MSDN community and network with each other on sites like the ones for Visual Basic, C#, C++, Silverlight, and Visual Studio Team Server.
Being an MSDN bookmarker can also help you collect a cool PDC badge at the event, so come by and show us your profile…
Sara Ford (saraford on Twitter) and Jim Newkirk will be at our booth for CodePlex, Microsoft's open source project hosting web site. In addition to being THE woman to talk to about open source projects on CodePlex, Sara has also written a book recently and might even sign a copy!
If you are not there, the PDC web site provides some great ways to track with the event. They even have a mobile site. Check it out.
