Countdown to PDC09: Developers Go 3D!

Description

Watch out James Cameron, the PDC team has done their first ever show in 3D, and that’s because we’ve got the width, the depth, and the length.  And how do we have those?  Well, check out the dozens of new sessions just announced (with tons more content still to come), that include SQL, WCF, Silverlight, and lots of goodness on Azure including a session on how Azure has changed since Microsoft first described it.  But don’t feel left out!  You can give a community talk at the PDC via our Birds of a Feather sessions.  Check out the PDC09 BOF site that includes instructions on how you can submit a session for consideration.  Now go get your 3D on, and don’t forget, the red lens goes over the left eye, and the blue one over the right eye!

PS: This works best in highest quality (so, choose WMV(High) from the Formats dropdown under the inline player)

      If you need a pair of glasses, you can get them at Blockbuster, or you can send me a postcard, Hallmark card, or nice letter and I'll send a pair to you for free. 

      3D on C9

      I'll also do a short video this week that shows how we shot this (using a pair of Flip UltraHD cameras). Watch for that soon.

      Very cool, Larry. People will soon understand why we call you Lightbulb.

      Can't wait for the post on HowTo

       

      PS: Make sure to get the Red & Blue not Red & Green glasses at BB that say Coraline on them, they are not the right ones. Call ahead.

      Still no sessions on Windows Installer or Wix. Based on the video I saw today from Melur Raghuraman, a session about the Windows Troubleshooting Platform would be very interesting.

      Cool idea with the 3D - just don't make it a tradition because my eyes hurt after 10 minutes of watching video in 3D glasses Wink

      No hard-hat challenge… buu… I was waiting for some intellectual fun!

      And a very nice ending I must say Big Smile perfect timing!

      Why was it a small window inside a huge black border?

      Are they serious? The whole video in "3D"? I never post on forums but I had to sign up just to post how terrible this video is. Yes, I get it, it's in "3D". But, gosh darn it, I left my 3D glasses back in 1985. Doing it for the first minute or so would have been funny, but the whole time? I see someone posted that his eyes hurt after 10 minutes WITH 3D glasses on. My eyes hurt after 10 seconds; and then when she did that kick??!?!!? I had to close the video.

      No, I'm not a troll or a flamer or whatever the popular term is now. I just can't believe that someone promoting a "professional" conference would do something like this. I watched the last video and it was ok, although I am a little confused as to why they are video and not just audio.

      Ok, I'm going to give it another shot...
      00:12 Man, that kick gets funnier every time..."Whaoooo!"
      00:20 "6D"...WTF? (crickets)
      00:35 My eyes hurt already...make it stop, make it stop!
      01:13 Stop jumping into the camera please.
      01:55 Why can't you stand still? Too much coffee today?
      02:11 O!!! A second kick!!! Watching this far was worth it.
      02:15 Yes! Sword action after the kick! This just gets better and better! (pukes in trash can)
      03:20 Font? Thank you SO much for telling me about the PDC font...zzz...
      04:30 Maybe that 3D sword will come out of the screen, slit my wrists, and put me out of my misery.
      05:11 "Never do this again"... I don't even know what to say, even he knows its bad
      06:40 It doesn't look as cool as you think...please stop
      06:49 A THIRD KICK! A THIRD KICK! A THIRD KICK! Everything is better in 3s!  Smiley
      07:45 Just zoom in and only show the guy, or better yet, turn the camera around completely
      08:33 Ok, even you have to know it's getting old by now
      09:00 O, have you been talking about something serious? Am I suppose to be getting something from this video...my bad
      09:52 "Can I just say one thing..." (buzz) THERE IS JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD!

      Wow, now I REALLY want to go to PDC. Please take the camera away from these people.

      Thanks for your passionate feedback, juicerp! There's nothing we love more than someone who believes in what they're saying. I'm surprised you actually stuck around to watch the whole thing. Smiley

       

      For what it's worth, the audio-only versions are also available for download just below the video thumbnail.

       

      Keep the feedback coming!

      Great, i'll also send two cards, then!

      You have to cut off the sides that each eye doesn't have data for. That screws up the size of the video, so I put it on the next larger standard output size. I also used the software's pixel blur around the edge, it's a (Jedi) mind trick that makes it less jarring when things go out of frame.

      I will definitely need a pair of those 3D glasses - I like this! Smiley

       

      Will send a letter ASAP.

      @Larry: Sorry to awake this old thread, but I'd like to thank you for the glasses.

       

      They just arrived this morning - seriously. It seems like the shipping (to Switzerland) took almost seven months... I believed either my postcard or the glasses had been lost on the way.

       

      Anyway, glad to have the glasses. And thank you for the c9 mascots, the look great on my desk. Cheers!
