The brand new site
has just launched and early bird registrations are now open for the 2008 Professional Developers Conference
. PDC2008 is an event where the best developers gather to listen to Microsoft disclose details on its future platform. Register before August 15th, 2008 and take advantage of the Early Bird Special - a $200 discount off the registration price.
The PDC2008 website offers some goodies
such as desktop wallpapers and blog bling. I ended up using Stardock's LogonStudio (which I blogged about here
) to change my logon background to one of the PDC2008 wallpapers. I've also added some PDC2008 blog bling to the Windows Experience Blog
. Along with the goodies off the new PDC2008 site, you can also follow PDC2008
on Twitter and become a Fan
of PDC on Facebook.
Both Chris and I will be attending PDC2008 and hope to see you there!
I've created a Windows Live Event
for PDC2008 for those signed up to attend PDC2008 this Fall. Just head on over to http://pdc2008.events.live.com/
. You can send me a Private Message
(via Windows Live) with your Windows Live ID
and I'll have an invite sent your way in 24 hours or less. You'll be able to add the Windows Live Event to a variety of calendar services including Windows Live Calendar. The Windows Live Event supports having discussions as well as uploading photos. If you've signed up to go to PDC2008 and have gone to PDC before - I'd love to see some photos from past PDC's.
