There are currently 188 sessions for this years PDC and they are still adding new sessions! I am one of the lucky ones that will be going and I can't wait, there are so many interesting sessions and after conference parties :)
Here are some sessions I am looking forward to:
- The Future of C# - Anders Hejlsberg
- Deep Dive: Dynamic Languages in Microsoft .NET - Jim Hugunin
- IronRuby: The Right Language for the Right Job - John Lam
- Microsoft .NET Framework: CLR Futures
- Managed Extensibility Framework: Overview - Glenn Block
- Under the Hood: Advances in the .NET Type System
I have high hopes for Anders Hejlsberg talk on the future of C#, I remember his talk at PDC 2005 where he presented LINQ, who knows what cool stuff he might unveil this time.
Many of the sessions cover Oslo, I am not that interested in Oslo, especially after the information that has been released about Oslo describing it as "Microsoft's data-centric platform, which is aimed at empowering nondevelopers to build distributed applications". There are also a ton of sessions on Windows 7, Silverlight and Visual Studio.
Anyway, I hope to meet some fellow bloggers and .NET enthusiasts there :)
