Windows 7 Beta 1 for MDC Attendees, see you at the Orlando event

Though some of you that were on the fence or have not year head about the MSDN Dev Con, are now more interested in coming out. It’s a tiny price compared to PDC and is coming to a city near you!

A good group of local celebrities will be presenting along side proven Microsoft experts at the Orlando event. I will be in the attendance and around any community areas. And any social after event :)

Bayer White (Jacksonville), Joe Homnick (Boca Raton), Christopher Bennage (Tallahassee), Rob Eisenberg (Tallahassee) , Shervin Shakibi (Boca Raton), Bill Reiss (Tampa), Stan Schultes (Sarasota), and Brandon Kelly (Tampa)

This is rate that I would post an entire email like this, but check this write up! How awesome is this event going to be ? AWESOME!!

Attend an upcoming MSDN Developer Conference and you will receive a Windows 7 Beta 1 DVD.

Note:  The Windows 7 DVDs will not be ready to hand out in time for the events happening in December, but we’ll definitely mail them out to you as soon as they become available.  Everyone attending the event from Houston, Orlando and Atlanta WILL get their DVD, just not at the actual event  :-)

Community Courtyard

As good as the sessions are, there's always more to explore and discuss. At MDC, you'll have a chance to step into the Community Courtyard and choose what to talk about, based on your interest and passion for the subject.

Running in tandem with the presentations is an open discussion area where you will choose the subjects and the participants.  Whether you want to mingle with the presenters, talk about an MDC session, a related subject or something else you have the opportunity.  Borrowing from Open Space Technology and other forms of open, community-driven discussion, using fishbowls and free-for-alls, this area is yours.
