It's fun to watch the excitement and anxiety now that attendees around the globe are packing their bags and getting ready for PDC 2008. Aali, a developer for Avanade, says he "can't wait to head to Helsinki airport and travel to Los Angeles where the famous PDC is held again this year. That is something I have waited for the last three years, so needless to say I expect it to be the ultimate Microsoft developer conference!" Rob Miles, lecturer at the University of Hull in the UK, wrote "the good news is that I'm presently preparing for a trip to PDC 2008 in LA. The way I see it, if I further my knowledge about technology and gadgets and stuff this will all feed into my teaching and make my lectures even more better than they already are." Robert Anderson is also going to PDC and while he wants to hear more about Windows 7, his excitement come from "meeting and hanging out with people." The Altova team is busy preparing to head to LA and exhibit at next week's PDC. They invited attendees to "stop by and visit us at booth #711, where we'd be happy to show you a demo of the Altova MissionKit tools for .NET developers. We may even have some nice swag and a drawing for you to enter."
