Damn, I was looking forward to the Dependency Injection today (Thurs).
The C# ones are packed, I would expect with developers and there is quite a limited number of developer related sessions, so maybe the added entity Framework will go ahead on Friday.....just hope it doesn't clash with the Sec-Pen session.
You can benefit from the reduced price surface RT and PRO using the card they gave you at registration. It's the purple one with the two codes on it. When you go to the MS store, you enter the promo code when purchasing and it will show you the discount. If you like me I used both codes as it's a MASSIVE saving.
Look forward to seeing what 2012 offers in this space. I think performance and load tests are under-used in corporates purely because they are a separate function to dev, where these could be incorporated closer to the dev space and part of the build/unit test CI.
Are there any development (Azure, VS, TFS, CRM) type exam preps ? Or are the development exams also available at the conference to take ? I'm hoping I can get a couple done while I'm there. The only problem is sacrificing a session or two for the exam, as there are so many good looking sessions I don't want to give any up. hmmmm. Might need to decide over a beer on the first night.
Look forward to finding out more about this. Been playing with the free version, but interested to see what is really available beyond what I've been trying out. Although my free version is about to expire. So this is key for me to see if it'll push me to the next level.
It's the same anywhere in the world in the bigger cities. You just got to be vigilant, sensible and enjoy yourself. I'm looking forward to visiting Madrid for the first time and can't wait to do the point, smile and nod...with a bit of Afrikaans just to confuse the situation a little...smile and nod again.
I always like the challenge of discussing collaboration. I do feel that there needs to be a closer link and an effort to break down those barriers (for the best interest of all). I'll be happy with anything that's sensible, practical and workable. Look forward to it !
