Many more event videos available at Channel 9 (was: PDC10 – view Microsoft PDC 2010 sessions on your PC)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/08/28

Dang; I thought this had long left the posting queue, but somehow it ended in the drafts (:

Since then, many more event videos made it to Channel 9, including Build 2011, and TechDays 2012.

Anyway, here it is:

Microsoft’s PDC 2010 was held at the end of October 2010 in Redmond, WA, USA.

For the people that could not attend, it is very nice to view the sessions using the PDC10 player (it seems still people didn’t learn and start stripping the century parts from years again!).

Even if you are not using Visual Studio, .NET Azure or other Microsoft Technologies, there are a lot of interesting sessions showing the directions that Microsoft is taking.
Comparing that to what you do today is always a good thing to do: it helps you reflect, an important part of your personal development.

A few things I found interesting (in no particular order):

  • Asynchrony support in C# 5 and VB.NET 11 based on the Task Parallel Library
  • The choice to favour HTML 5 over SilverLight, even though Internet Explorer 9 and Microsoft’s HTML 5 authoring/development tools are far from ready
  • Azure reporting: is reporting the next big thing on clouds?
  • Offline versus online in the cloud world
  • NuPack – does it bring package management to the same level as Ruby or *nix?
  • XNA for XBox, Windows and Windows Phone

Enjoy!
