PDC 2008 I can’t wait

Posted: September 5, 2008  |  Categories: PDC 2008 Uncategorized

Today I stumbled over a blog by Marcel Fernee from Microsoft The Netherlands. I know him through projects I have done with customers and he helped me out a couple of times. I read his post about coming PDC. As a employee of Microsoft he went to their internal TechReady Conference in Seattle. He mentions that there will be a lot announcements from Microsoft. In his posts two code names where mentioned; Red Dog and Zurich. So I googled around a bit and found some information. Red Dog is a cloud utility and will be a competitor to Google’s App Engine . Zurich is an initiative to extend Microsoft’s .NET application development technologies to the Internet ‘cloud’. Having read this I am really anxious to hear about during the PDC end of October.
