In short: 17 cities in 15 countries till the end of image2010 and a few more in 2011. The main idea of Open Door events is to bring the best content of the biggest Microsoft international conferences (like TechEd and PDC) to the doors of local IT Professionals and Developers. Topics like Cloud, Office 2010 and Windows 7 best practices, Windows Phone and Web development and of course a deep look into server infrastructure – all that is going to be there.
