Announcing Windows 7 Developer Boot Camp at PDC09 (and it's free!)

Sign in to queue


We just announced a day of free training on November 16, 2009 in LA as part of PDC09. Did I mention that it is free, that it will include deep dives into the depth of Windows from folks like Mark Russinovich, Landy Wang and Arun Kishan? Wait, did I just write that?!

This is AWESOME. If you are a Windows developer and in the LA area I would highly encourage you to attend this free day of training.

The event is FREE to any oneit does not matter whether you are attending PDC.   

The event is first-come-first serve and there is limited capacity, so sign-up early!

The event will be fast-paced and very dense; we are condensing several weeks worth of blog, documentation and code reading into 8 hours...  It truly is a great way to dive quickly into Windows 7. Going Deep in real time! Smiley

The event is coordinated with other PDC sessions,  we aim to minimize overlap,  and make sure there is good segues  from the boot camp to PDC sessions.

There will be more speakers announced next week. Stay tuned!

Instructions for PDC09 conference attendees.  Enter the regular registration process through the Registration page, and click on the orange register now button.  Select ‘register for the event’ as your registration type.  You’ll be able to add the Boot Camp as a workshop during the registration process.  If you have already registered, simply login and update your registration record to include the Boot Camp. 

Instructions for non-attendees.  Enter the regular registration process through the Registration page, and click on the orange register now button.  Select ‘register for workshop only pass’ as your registration type.  When you get to the workshop selection page of the registration form, you'll be able to pick the Windows 7 Boot Camp as a free item.

    I like to attend the free boot camp session too but I already signed up for other Pre-Conference session on that day...  I wish MS do this session as a Post-Conference session or post the webcast online in CH9 later...

    Well, it would be hard for us to simultaneously have these trainings all over the world. Smiley


    I will find out about the filming of these (so, you could just take part right here on Channel 9). Not sure yet regarding filming, so can't promise anything. Stay tuned.

    Hi stevo_! There are actually lots of other developer events going on around the world to coincide with the launch of Windows 7 - I don't know them all but if you go to your local MSDN site I'm pretty sure you'll find something. (Failing that, let me know.) We can't afford to have the full team deliver this training in every country - it was hard enough to assemble such a star lineup somewhere just two hours away from Redmond - but we are indeed recording this bootcamp for online distribution - stay tuned for later details. Still - if you can get to LA, you'll get the full experience: while it's good to watch a ballgame on TV, nothing beats the live experience Smiley


    Thanks for your post, Tim
