Who is coming to DelphiLive? « Daniel Magin’s Weblog

Posted by jpluimers on 2009/04/24

My German colleague Daniel Magin is keeping track of people going to attend or speak at DelphiLive ’09.

Please leave a comment on his blog posting to help him assembling the list.

I’ll be arriving on the evening of  tuesday, May 12th, and leave in the morning of sunday May 17th (in order to keep the flight costs down, it is wise to include a Saturday/Sunday night stay).

  • The main body of the session was pre-recorded, the 15 minute Q&A was live

  • The broadcasts were done through LiveMeeting
