Fall Conference Wrap-Up – Part 4

My new column is up on Legal IT Professionals. This is the final part of my Fall Conference Wrap Up series. In this part, I take the technologies I described in the first three columns, and try to relate them to real business value.

Off to PDC09

Really looking forward to the Microsoft Professional Developers’ Conference in LA this week – except for the getting up at 4 AM to get to the airport tomorrow!

There are a number of areas I am exciting about for the conference. On Monday I am in an all day workshop on Software in the Energy Economy which should be very interesting given a number of projects I am involved in lately regarding energy management systems and systainability support.

At the conference proper, other than the keynotes, there are a fair number of session I have put in my schedule related to Azure – still very much interested in cloud computing, even though I have had little time to look at it.

I am also planning to attend a number of sessions on Workflow Foundation 4.0, even though it will not be available in SharePoint 2010 (at least initially).

Then there are a number of sessions I want to go to just out of personal interest – those involving Silverlight, touch and multitouch applications, and many others. As always, far more things I want to learn than I could possibly have time for!

While there is some great content around SharePoint 2010, I will probably not focus on that since I got a lot of good SharePoint information at SPC09 a few weeks back.

I am hoping do more blogging from PDC than I did at SPC – not hard since I did not blog at all from SPC! Damn twittier took all of my time!
